GatesAir has developed a weatherpoof transmitter series for challenging coverage areas

GatesAir has been be able to release to the market the first self-contained, fully weatherproof transmitter series built for challenging coverage areas and install points. GatesAir is specialized in developing wireless and over-the-air content delivery solutions for TV and radio. The Maxiva PMTX-1 integrates a low-power UHF TV transmitter or transposer/translator to support a wide range of use cases.

The Maxiva PMTX-1 is sealed efficiently with metal that also removes heat from the internal circuitry and performs well in extreme weathers and high humidity levels. GatesAir’s European-based engineering team removes all moving parts and air filters to eliminate most maintenance requirements. The PMTX-1 also utilizes an integral mask filter to minimize external componentry. Its simplicity does not threaten its versatility because the PMTX-1 flexible mounting options support a variety of scenarios to optimize coverage.

The PMTX-1 is able to perform for single-frequency network (SFN) configurations for DVB-T2, ISDB-Tb and other digital TV networks. Is also available for analog TV networks (100 W), with a field-upgradeable path to DTV (50 W for ATSC, DVB-T, DVB-T2 and ISDB-Tb). Broadcasters can add optional inputs to support DVB-S/S2 receivers and IP transport streams, and accept broadcast content and data from alternate sources.

“Transmission networks continue to evolve and change, requiring flexible solutions that are adaptable to emerging network models and configurations”, said Ted Lantz, Vice President, Product Line Management. “The PMTX-1 is a problem-solver for any broadcaster or network operator transitioning to an SFN, filling in coverage gaps, or requiring a low-power solution for a specific market or region”.
