European Debut For GatesAir's Flexiva LX

News Image
GatesAir's Flexiva LX will receive its European debut at IBC2016, Stand 8.C30, the company has announced.

The Flexiva LX solid-state FM radio transmitter integrates GatesAir's latest software-defined exciter and several components previously only available as separate units, including a digital multi-band audio processor and a stereo encoder with composite clipper. The design ensures a single streamlined analog FM platform that is easy to maintain either separately or within larger transmission headends. The Flexiva LX is available for power levels ranging from 10 to 1050 Watts (1kW).

The Flexiva LX will be demonstrated alongside higher power Flexiva FLX liquid-cooled and FAX air-cooled transmitters. These utilise the company's PowerSmart 3D transmission architecture for power efficiency, single-engineer maintenance, and signal performance. Flexiva FLX and FAX transmitters comprise the latest 50-volt LDMOS amplifier devices, high-efficiency power supplies, variable speed cooling and the Flexiva FAX exciter with real-time adaptive correction (RTAC) to optimise signal quality and compliance.

"While the Flexiva LX is positioned at the lower-power end of the product line, broadcasters will find that it provides top-of-the-line features, energy efficiency, and on-air sound quality at a very attractive, budget friendly price-point," said Rich Redmond, Chief Product Officer, GatesAir. "With every new Flexiva transmitter introduction and upgrade, we strive to help broadcasters lower their operating expenses by reducing their RF plant's energy usage, space requirements, maintenance costs and carbon footprint, without performance compromises. We believe that this mission is the key to helping broadcasters stay competitive, and take advantage of new broadcasting opportunities, while preserving the environment. We encourage broadcasters to see how GatesAir is pushing the envelope on energy- and cost-efficiency that leads to a rapid return on investment."

Also at IBC2016, GatesAir will demonstrate the Intraplex IP Link MPX. It will be the European debut of the product as well, and is the latest member of the GatesAir IP Link audio codec family. It is a full-duplex product built specifically for the FM studio-to-transmitter link, and designed to solve universal bandwidth challenges of transporting digital FM composite signals over IP networks. The Intraplex IP Link MPX offers an extensive feature set, including multiple input and output ports for signal redundancy, decoding of audio and RDS content from either the input or output MPX signal, and the option to incorporate external SCA subcarrier signals into the output MPX signal. It also offers features common to all IP Link codecs, including stream splicing, forward error correction (FEC), and a trio of network interfaces for optimal stream reliability.
