Egatel unveils at NAB Show 2015 its Wideband-High Efficiency TV Transmitters and makes a breakthrough in the SatCOM market with the ‘smart LNB’
The company will show the "Smart LNB", a product conceived by the satellite operator Eutelsat, that allows offering connected TV services via satellite.
Egatel will attend one more year to the NAB Show, which will take place from 13th to 16th of April in Las Vegas, to present its cutting edge technology in TV transmitters, and this time the Company will be also showing its new product line in the field of satellite transceivers.
Egatel will be shown its UHF Wideband High Efficiency Transmitters (WHET series) at its booth SU10107, both liquid and air cooled. For the first time the Doherty technology becomes Wideband, meaning that it is applicable to the whole UHF band. Therefore, no modifications in the amplifiers are required when the operator needs to change the RF channel.
On the satellite field, the ‘Smart LNB’ will be showcased, a terminal conceived by the satellite operator Eutelsat and implemented by Egatel. Eutelsat, one of the leading satellite operators and a key provider of Broadcast and Broadband services, has conceived the ‘Smart LNB’ terminal to enable the next generation of bidirectional connected TV platform services and M2M applications.
The ‘smart LNB’ is a cutting-edge electronic device connected to the satellite dish equipped with a novel transceiver that has a High Efficiency narrowband return link. The terminal will shake up the SatCom market, by opening the door to a wide range of satellite TV connected services such as: HbbTV, social networking, payment transactions, subscription-based management and on-demand services, etc; Besides TV connected services, the 'smart LNB' supports multiple Machine to Machine (M2M) applications: e-Health, smart Homes, Smart Metering, etc.
As a superb example of the liquid cooling WHET series, the Egatel team will show a live demo of Doherty-Wideband 3.3 kWrms DVB/ISDB (5 kWrms ATSC) transmitter. This liquid-cooled system is defined by its complete modular design and includes the pump system integrated within the transmitter’s rack. This solution optimizes premises layout and investment.
Regarding air-cooled series, also within WHET Series, a 600 Wrms DVB/ISDB (1 kWrms ATSC) Doherty Transmitter working over a load will be presented. The amplifiers design includes aspects that synthesizes Egatel’s know how, avoiding air flow through electronic components or PCBs, using redundant power supplies with easy access from the forefront or placing fans outside the module for an easy replacement avoiding the need of opening it.
The use of Doherty technology in the new amplifiers rockets Energy Efficiency up to values of 42%, optimizing the Energy Consumption and, thus the OPEX.
