At its CABSAT debut next month, GatesAir, a global leader in wireless, over-the-air content delivery solutions for radio and TV broadcasters, will demonstrate its leadership in powering and optimising AM/FM networks at the lowest total cost of ownership.
In addition to supporting very high-power AM and FM systems across the Middle East, GatesAir’s experience in delivering turnkey RF systems ensures that its customers are covered from installation through commissioning. To assure optimal performance across networks of any geographical area, GatesAir additionally supplies all pertinent RF systems, including high-efficiency transmitters, antennas and auxiliary equipment.
At its CABSAT booth, GatesAir will demonstrate a low-power version of its high-efficiency Flexiva FM transmitter, which can modularly scale to power networks up to 80kW. The company’s Flexiva AM transmitters also offer good performance for power levels exceeding 2 MegaWatts, ensuring broadcasters a long-term, high-quality solution that reduces operating costs and energy bills over many years.
GatesAir is a pioneer in high-efficiency transmitter designs, dating back several decades to its patented digital AM Radio modulation techniques that balance superior audio performance with 90 percent AC-to-RF efficiency. These early strides in limiting energy and heat waste in transmitter facilities have evolved to the current generation of high-efficiency, broadband transmitters.
“GatesAir has a long history of helping broadcasters and network operators worldwide enhance performance and reduce operating costs for over-the-air networks, while opening doors for new revenue-generating, multichannel services that digital broadcasting offers,” said Alain Pecot, vice president of sales EMEA, GatesAir. “We look forward to meeting with new and existing customers at CABSAT to help them address the challenges of optimizing analog networks today, and enabling multichannel content delivery at the lowest cost of ownership moving forward.”
