Nautel has an announcement that should thrill many AM radio station owners, personnel and fans: digital AM broadcast is available for all of its NX AM transmitter line.
Nautel head of Marketing John Whyte said, “Although all-digital AM operation currently requires an experimental license, we and others feel that this is an exciting direction for the AM band and Nautel is ready to support broadcasters as they move ahead with their plans.”
Whyte added, “Its digital modes provide the precision needed in the spectral mask as well as the in-band signal quality required for digital features such as User Experience metadata. NX transmitters, combined with our digital-ready importers and exporters such as HD MultiCast+, make it easy for AM stations to adopt digital transmission.”
Nautel’s NUG will also take a look at all-digital AM with the “Future of AM” panel. In addition all-digital AM will be demoed throughout the show at the Nautel booth.
