GatesAir & Hearst Television Sign Agreement

News Image
GatesAir has signed an agreement with Hearst Television to support multiple stations affected by the TV spectrum repack.

The agreement includes broadband transmitters and installation services from GatesAir, plus site audits in advance of purchasing and installation. Based on each site's specific requirements, Hearst Television will acquire GatesAir's Maxiva ULXTE liquid-cooled and/or Maxiva UAXTE air-cooled high-efficiency transmitters. All will integrate GatesAir's ATSC 3.0-ready Maxiva XTE exciter, including the latest GatesAir RTAC software, which provides real-time adaptive correction to optimise signal integrity and compliance. All Maxiva transmitters incorporate GatesAir's PowerSmart Plus technology to reduce size, weight and power consumption while streaming maintenance.

GatesAir and Hearst Television have completed detailed working plans in support of channel reassignments at each station. All information gathered following station site audits was then given to engineers at GatesAir's manufacturing base in Quincy, Illinois to initiate the systems design process.

Martin Faubell, VP of Engineering, Hearst Television, said: "GatesAir has been a long-time partner of Hearst Television, and as we did for the DTV transition, we will once again count on them to provide transmitters and installations for our group of stations participating in the Spectrum Repack. We value their commitment and experience to enable us to hit our marks over the next 32 months."

"Our extensive manufacturing and service operation leaves us uniquely prepared to accommodate Hearst Television with the industry's most comprehensive repack solution across evaluation, equipment and engineering services, including accelerated delivery, installation and commissioning timelines," added Joe Mack, VP of Sales, Americas, GatesAir. "We are thankful for Hearst Television's business and look forward to helping them relocate to new channel assignments without disruption to their over-the-air services."
