CINCINNATI — GatesAir, a global leader in wireless, over-the-air content delivery solutions for radio and TV broadcasters, announces that Chile broadcaster Mega has selected GatesAir to support its national digital TV transition and rollout. Scheduled for deployment over the next several years, the rollout will include more than 50 GatesAir Maxiva high-efficiency transmitters in at least 23 cities. The project will include Maxiva ULXT liquid-cooled and UAXTE air-cooled transmitters at power levels ranging from 300 W to 5 kW.
Mega, a private TV broadcaster and long-term GatesAir customer, chose GatesAir for its ability to meet the diverse technical specifications across power levels and system configurations across a large number of locations. This ISDB-T-based project includes integrated remux functionality to support multichannel services; increased energy efficiency to reduce utility costs and power consumption; and an exceptional modulation error ratio (MER) to reduce noise within, and increase performance of, the DTV signal network-wide.
