Radio Frequency Systems receives Emmy for adjacent channel combiners

Radio Frequency Systems (RFS) has been honored in the 60th Annual Emmy Awards for its work on adjacent channel combiners for TV broadcasting.

The technology has saved the TV industry billions by making it unnecessary to deploy new antenna systems and towers to run digital and analog systems concurrently during TV's digital switchover.

RFS received its Emmy at an awards dinner Jan. 7, the opening night of the 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Prior to this technology, the only practical way to run both digital and analog transmissions, especially using adjacent channels, at the same time would have been to install separate antennas, electronics and supporting infrastructure at the transmitter site. This would have added considerably to the cost of the site.
