Nucomm to roll out new 7 Series ENG products
Nucomm will unveil its new 7 Series HD and HD-ready electronic newsgathering (ENG) products at NAB2008.
The company’s entire ENG/OB product line is now capable of HD operation using built-in encoding/decoding technology. All 7 Series products can be delivered with HD capability or delivered for SD operation, which can be field upgraded to HD via software key.
Prior to the 7 Series, Nucomm’s HD product line consisted of the CamPac 2 HD/SD wireless camera transmitter and Newscaster DR HD/SD diversity receiver. The 7 Series will displace the current SD product line as Nucomm’s standard product.
All 7 Series products offer multiple modulation modes, including VSB, COFDM, DVB-S and FM, dual- and tri-band RF outputs and ease of operation.
Among the products making up the series are: the Channel Master TX7 portable transmitter, the Channel Master RX7 portable receiver, the Newscaster VT7 ENG/OB van transmitter and the Newscaster CR7 central receiver.
