US broadcast technology firm GatesAir has added another seven patent awards to its legacy of 238 previous US and global patents, providing a foundation to improve signal quality and enhance technical efficiencies in the over-the-air broadcast architecture.
The seven patent awards span technical inventions including: Predictable coding delay over communications networks; operation of an antenna on a second, higher frequency; systems and methods for presentation of digital media at a mobile platform; and broadband high-efficiency amplifier system incorporating dynamic modulation of load impedance.
“These innovations are focused on improving system methods and enabling greater efficiencies that affect everything from signal management and amplification, to the delivery of dynamic media content to consumers on the move,” said Rich Redmond, chief product officer, GatesAir. “We are committed to evolving the over-the-air broadcast experience for consumers across radio, TV and mobile platforms.”
GatesAir also paid tribute to the “company scientists and engineers” responsible for innovations: Jay Adrick, Kevin Berndsen, Dmitri Borodulin, George Cabrera, Junius Kim, John Levieux, and Ted Staros.
