Jampro's Compact UHF TV Mask Filter/Combiner Wins 'STAR' Award

The new Jampro UHF RWED-516-U compact TV mask/filter combiner, manufactured by Jampro Antennas Inc of Sacramento, California - a leading supplier of antennas, combiners, filters and RF components for every application in the broadcast industry - is the recipient of the 2008 STAR (Superior Technology Award Recipient) Award presented by the editorial staff of 'TV Technology' magazine at the NAB 2008 convention.
The STAR Award is designed to celebrate and showcase the outstanding technological innovations available to the broadcast industry.
A panel of judges consisting of 'TV Technology' editors and columnists reviewed a variety of products, examined the technical applications and their overall contribution to the industry, and then submitted their award nominees.
Tom Butts, 'TV Technology' editor, said: "Every year, the NAB show serves as the launching pad for thousands of new products and services for audio and video professionals. Our panel of editors walk the show floor in search of the most innovative technologies.
"The products and services that we select for the STAR Award make the cut - they demonstrate their ability to help advance the acquisition and distribution of entertainment and information across the media spectrum."
This exciting new RWED-516-U incorporates four-port directional filter/combining that can be used either as a mask filter, or as a constant impedance-combining module for high power UHF TV broadcasts.
The unit has a cross-coupled design that accommodates adjacent channels, meets stringent filtering standards and provides constant impedance performance in adjacent channel applications as well as channel separations greater than 15 channels.
The RWER-516-U features the high isolation of traditional constant impedance technology, but achieves elliptical response without external coupling mechanisms.
The large cavities of the RWED-516-U can handle high power with low insertion loss and the filters are temperature compensated for close-spaced combining applications.
Not limited to bandwidth restrictions of standard hybrid technology, the RWED-516-U is expandable to handle future channels."
The engineers at Jampro designed the unit to save space with a clean, compact design that can even be mounted overhead. Meter Ports are available for both before and after the filter.
