IMT To Roll Out Rugged Receiver With Multichannel Options
Integrated Microwave Technologies (Booth) will launch the Nucomm CPCRx6 compact portable central receiver with multichannel options.
The ruggedized COFDM (DVB-T–compliant) six-way diversity receiver offers exceptional RF performance and environmental durability for external use. It accepts six RF inputs from external antennas and features a compact, lightweight IP66-rated chassis, enabling it to be mount it on vehicles, towers, or the tops of buildings in any weather condition. The CPCRx6 sends the MPEG transport stream over IP by either Ethernet cable or ruggedized fiber to an 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 CTO John Payne IV. “It has been designed to simplify installation, 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 deploys 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 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, easy-to-use Web-based administration software is supplied.
