Thomson Broadcast (formerly the transmission division of Grass Valley) will highlight the Elite 1000 GreenPower television transmitter line at IBC2010. The sleek, high performance UHF transmitter features 50-V LDMOS technology and boasts an output power of up to 9.6 kW DVB per unit with an energy consumption savings of up to 15 percent over the previous Elite transmitter series.
Utilizing Thomson real-time Digital Adaptive Precorrection (DAP), the Elite 1000 GreenPower line provides leading-edge DTV transmission efficiency, optimized output power, exemplary signal quality, and high redundancy.
Thanks to the Elite 1000 GreenPower line's hot-swappable, modular design, the operator can easily increase its amplifier power while maintaining continuous operation and also continuing to contain energy consumption. The Optiphase and Optigain concepts and the automatic power supply voltage management system, which are incorporated in the unit, guarantee that power consumption is kept to a minimum while sustaining maximum RF output power.
"As part of our content distribution and transmission efficiency strategy, the Elite 1000 GreenPower series meets the real requirements of our customers worldwide -- reducing energy usage as well as maintenance, while offering optimal reliability," said Nicolas Dallery, president of the Thomson Broadcast business unit.
Users benefit from long-term cost-cutting thanks to the DAP feature for automatic linear and nonlinear corrections as well as the thorough diagnostic capabilities with embedded SNMP agent and Web server. Equipped with an open exciter -- compliant to standards including DVB-T, DVB-T2, DVB-H, ATSC, ATSC Mobile DTV, FLO, and DAB -- the RoHS-compliant Elite 1000 GreenPower transmitter line delivers unprecedented quality.
