Dielectric highlighting low-power antennas at NAB
Debuting at NAB, Dielectric’s DLP low-power antenna series features horizontally polarized antennas in a number of standard directional azimuth patterns, with an average power rating of 1.6 kW.
Designed to provide broadcasters with a low weight and wind-load system for mobile media transmissions, distributed transmission systems and translators, the DLP features an eight-bay single module design.
The antenna provides a single 7/8in input, a 1.5-degree beam tilt, and a low-profile slot cover for protection from environmental wear and tear. The DLP’s simple mechanical design ensures a straightforward installation.
The new product family is designed to provide a cost-effective and easy-to-install solution for LPTV broadcasters in accordance with the FCC open filing window for digital LPTV stations and translators — the first in 11 years.
The new low-power product line enable LPTV and DTS broadcasters, as well as translators and boosters to optimize their digital coverage.
