IMT UNVEILS NUCOMM TRIPLE PLAY RECEIVER AT NAB 2015
Transmitter-Agnostic, Three-Channel Receiver Allows for Simultaneous Reception
LAS VEGAS, APRIL 14, 2015 – Integrated Microwave Technologies (IMT), a leader in advanced digital microwave systems serving the Broadcast, Sports & Entertainment and MAG (Military, Aerospace & Government) markets, unveils its Nucomm Triple Play Receiver at NAB 2015 (Booth N3922).
The Nucomm Triple Play Receiver’s chassis houses up to three receivers within a single rack-mount unit, allowing for simultaneous reception from up to three wireless camera transmitters. It is a dual-diversity COFDM receiver that uses two-way maximum ratio combining technology to enable the support of Line-of-Sight (LOS) as well as Non-Line-of-Sight (NLOS) applications. While an excellent companion to IMT’s Nucomm microLite transmitter, it is compatible with any MPEG-2/MPEG-4 transmitter. To simplify deployment the system is conveniently housed in a single 1RU chassis eliminating the need for separately mounted receivers. Further system simplification is achieved by eliminating complicated external antenna splitters and BDCs.
“The Triple Play Receiver reduces the equipment footprint for broadcasters and ENG crews,” says John Payne IV, CTO, Integrated Microwave Technologies. “Since the Triple Play Receiver works with multiple transmitters from various vendors, it further reinforces IMT’s commitment to providing the industry with cutting-edge solutions compatible with its legacy equipment.”
Each receiver has a built-in HD/SD video/audio decoder, ASI output and video over IP, making it flexible for ASI repeater applications, local monitoring and IP controls. The unit can be powered via AC operation and includes remote control with Ethernet. The Triple Play Receiver has a variable bandwidth from the 1.25 to 8 MHz bands, and features a high-dynamic-range super heterodyne architecture and pre-select band-pass filters for high adjacent-channel selectivity.
Designed at the request of multiple customers, the unit requires minimal setup to operate and comes with an easy-to-use local user interface. Each receiver has an independent control panel, further simplifying its control. In addition, users can access all three channel outputs individually from the unit’s back panel.
