Nucomm makes Newscaster receiver available in split box form factor

Nucomm is highlighting its Newscaster DR 2 diversity receiver at HD World 2009 (Booth 1008). The updated Newscaster DR now offers a split box and the ability to receive UHF digital signals in the 150MHz to 850MHz band.

Because the DR 2 can receive lower frequency UHF digital signals, the unit works with external block downconverters (BDC). It can be purchased with BDCs that can receive a wide range of frequencies from 1.99GHz to 7.1GHz, depending on customer requirements.

The architecture of the DR 2 offers communication between the external BDCs and the main receive unit, enabling the system to operate in different modes, such as wideband, tuned 1 or tuned 2.

The DR 2 is also equipped with four RF inputs that communicate directly to the external BDCs, which form a maximum ratio combination that offers up to four input diversity receive signals. In using the external BDC, the Newscaster DR 2’s receive antennas can be remotely mounted at a distance from the main unit. It is outfitted with an integrated COFDM demodulator, an MPEG-2 HD/SD decoder, internal power supply, an integrated spectrum analyzer and an on-screen display.
