According to the French firm, the Vithal VHF transmitters are specifically designed to deliver high efficiency and easy maintenance to address the digital radio and television market.

Supporting standards such as DAB+ and DVB-T2, the Vithal VHF range features efficiency of up to 30%, says the company, and offers a cost-efficient solution for any VHF digital broadcasting, including audio, video, or multimedia broadcast.


Delivering Signals to the DAB Transmitter

In early 1999, CHUM radio was granted DAB licenses for its two stations, CFUN(AM) and CHQM(FM), in Vancouver. The two signals had to be delivered from the studios in Vancouver to the CBC transmitter site on Mount Seymour in North Vancouver.
