GatesAir presents the future of television and radio transmission at CABSAT

Rich Redmond, President and MD, International for GatesAir.

GatesAir will bring its latest television and radio transmitters to CABSAT. The Maxiva series offers air-cooled and liquid-cooled models for analogue and digital television, at low operating costs.

On the FM and HD Radio side, the Flexiva transmitters provide air- and liquid-cooled models to suit any installation of power level across analogue and digital radio. This includes Flexiva FAX COMPACT and low-power exciter/transmitter models as low as 10W.

The transmitters share a common architecture that optimises transmitter size, weight and infrastructure to keep cooling costs low, labour and maintenance manageable and, where applicable, reduce rental space in shared transmitter shelters.

Speaking about the product line-up at CABSAT, Rich Redmond, President and MD, International for GatesAir, said: “GatesAir is positioned to help broadcasters cost-effectively migrate to new technologies on their time frame, leveraging the advances in high-efficiency IP-connected transmission platforms. CABSAT remains the premier venue to meet with all our regional customers and partners in one place, as well as regions such as Southeast Asia.  We have invested in new staff and partner resources to more efficiently serve the region, led by our new regional MD, Andy McClelland. We have also added Peter Timmons for business development in this region.”

MENA still offers great potential for GatesAir because the region is still operating with analogue television. GatesAir continues to upgrade existing systems while helping broadcasters plan for a digital TV future. The company has supported several national DTV rollouts worldwide and says it is well-positioned to help MENA countries through these challenging transitions.

“Radio is a very important medium throughout the Middle East for GatesAir, and we continue to help FM broadcasters upgrade existing infrastructure that will support high-quality FM broadcasts well into the future. Digital radio adoption is gradually on the rise as well, notably HD Radio, DRM and DAB Radio. Our latest digital radio innovations will be of great interest to our customers in MENA moving forward.”
