Broadcast Electronics To Introduce 25kW 4MX Transmitter at NAB2006Quincy, IL, USA − Broadcast Electronics (BE) will return to the NAB convention this spring with a 25kW transmitter based on its breakthrough, patent-pending 4MX medium-wave digital transmission technology.
The company’s new 4MX 25kW transmitter is the second in a line of medium-wave transmitters based on 4M Modulation™, BE’s patent-pending method of modulating the duty cycle of the radio frequency directly to produce a more linear output waveform.
BE introduced its 4MX 50kW transmitter more than a year ago, setting a new benchmark in AM efficiency and power-performance to meet today’s HD Radio™ and Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) requirements. With the introduction of its 4MX 25kW transmitter this NAB convention, the company is extending the benefits of 4MX technology to stations requiring up to 25kW power outputs.
“The overwhelming interest in 4MX as the preferred modulation method for HD Radio and DRM really pushed us to produce a 25kW version so soon after introducing the 50kW 4MX,” stated Tim Bealor, BE Vice President, RF Systems.
The patent-pending 4M Modulation scheme uses a breakthrough technique to apply signal to all PA modules in parallel, resulting in a transmitter that outperforms other transmitters in its class by several percentage points in terms of audio quality and efficiency. Among other benefits, this design maintains audio quality and efficiency during both full power daytime and reduced power nighttime modes.
DRM-compatible and capable of linear audio reproduction, the transmitter comes with separate audio input in order to pass the full frequency range possible of digital transmission.
The 4MX 25kW and 50kW transmitters are part of BE’s comprehensive AM and FM transmitter line ranging in power and application, from 1kW emergency units to dual analog and digital transmission at the top of the power scale, and every power and implementation in between. BE supplies its products as standalone units to existing systems or as part of a total system package along with other third-party products for unmatched system reliability and future-proof flexibility.
Broadcast Electronics is at NAB2006 booth N1808.
