GatesAir brings its Maxiva ULXT liquid-cooled UHF TV transmitters to VTV (Vietnam Television)
GatesAir has announced a strategic DVB-T2 TV transmission win in Vietnam in cooperation with channel partner Emico.
Specifically, VTV (Vietnam Television), Vietnam’s national state television broadcaster, recently completed a national DVB-T2 network expansion to four new transmission sites. Emico, local transmission partner for VTV since the 1990s, and longtime GatesAir customer, has installed and commissioned Maxiva ULXT liquid-cooled UHF TV transmitter (2.4 KW of digital power) across several facilities located in northern regions of the country.
VTV first installed Maxiva liquid-cooled transmitters for analog TV in 2009, and have more recently installed liquid-cooled transmitters for digital TV. All Maxiva transmitters in the network will share the same hot-swappable power supplies and amplifier modules, “minimizing labor and repairs while maximing operational efficiency”.
According to the press release, GatesAir won the contract due to “familiarity and system reliability”, as well as the long-term business relationships between GatesAir and Emico.
