IMT ROLLS OUT CRx6 AT NAB 2015
Six-Way Diversity Receiver Features Multi-Channel Options and is Ideal for Tower-Mount Broadcast and Portable Central-Receive/ENG Applications
LAS VEGAS, APRIL 15, 2015 – Integrated Microwave Technologies (IMT), a leader in advanced digital microwave systems serving the Broadcast, Sports & Entertainment and MAG (Military, Aerospace & Government) markets, is rolling out the Nucomm Compact Portable Central Receiver (CPCRx6) with multi-channel options at NAB 2015 (Booth N3922).
CPCRx6 is a ruggedized COFDM (DVB-T compliant) six-way diversity receiver that offers exceptional RF performance and IP66-rated environmental durability for external use. It accepts six RF inputs from external antennas and features a compact, lightweight rugged IP66-rated chassis, enabling users to mount it on vehicles, towers or the tops of buildings in any weather condition. The CPCRx6 sends the MPEG transport stream over IP either by an Ethernet cable or ruggedized fiber to a MPEG decoder, and is powered using PoE IEEE 802-3af. The CPCRx6 also features optional two- or four-channel, six-way diversity reception in the same package.
“With the CPCRx6, we are excited to bring the next generation of receive systems to NAB,” says John Payne IV, CTO, Integrated Microwave Technologies. “It has been designed to simplify installation and improve reliability and performance, and reduce costs. The CPCRx6 is an accessory to the newly released DR3 and extends Nucomm’s product family of IP diversity receivers. ”
The Nucomm CPCRx6 system is designed to optimize the receive signal automatically at all times, virtually eliminating human intervention. In contrast to the older single, highly directional antenna, the CPCRx6 employs multiple antenna elements that cover 360 degrees of azimuth in overlapping sectors.
A Windows-based software application decoder (IMT’s eView) is included with each CPCRx6. With the simple click of a button, users can decode video and audio from any COFDM transmitter. eView also features channel control, receiver statistics and recorder functionality. Designed with the user in mind, CPCRx6 requires minimal setup to operate. For advanced functions, such as changing frequency plans, AES decryption keys or unit naming, an easy to use Web-based administration software package is supplied.
