GatesAir anticipates its ATSC 3.0 innovations for NextGen TV that will be present at the 2019 NAB Show
2019 NAB Show will host the latest ATSC 3.0 innovations for NextGen television, specifically in the area of Single Frequency Network (SFN) architectures, by GatesAir.
Last year, GatesAir announced its participation in the Phoenix Model Market, a collaborative project led by the Pearl TV consortium that included one dozen Phoenix, Arizona area broadcasters and featured technology provided by GatesAir and other key industry supplies.
At that time, the company supplied a low-power Maxiva ™ UAXTE air-cooled transmitter. Now, Pearl TV has announced the expansion to multiple transmission sites of the test bed, establishing a true SFN architecture. To meet this goal, GatesAir will supply a Maxiva ULXTE-10, 6.6 kW liquid-cooled transmitter to help broadcasters to evaluate the benefits of SFN transmissions in a NextGen ATSC 3.0 system.
GatesAir supports many of the largest SFN deployments worldwide, including digital TV networks in Brazil (ISDB-Tb) and Asia (DVB-T2); as well as MaxxCasting SFN systems for FM radio in the United States.
2019 NAB Show (April 6-11) will have some ATSC 3.0 presentations with the participation of GatesAir. In addition, the company will introduce a new range of ATSC 3.0-ready, low-power Maxiva ULXTE transmitters that covers LPTV requirements from 10W to 2kW.
