SUN TV orders Harris Atlas transmitter for DTV in Canada

Canadian broadcaster SUN TV has ordered a new Harris Atlas ATSC transmitter to serve as a repeater relaying the network’s HDTV programming to the Ottawa market. The 1.2 kW, liquid-cooled Atlas transmitter with dual Apex Series 8-VSB exciters is scheduled to be on-air in September.

SUN TV, a Toronto-based independent television station operating under the call letters CKXT, was attracted to the transmitter's redundancy, reliability and remote control capabilities. SUN reaches audiences throughout Canada through a combination of satellite and cable distribution channels, as well as over-the-air transmission within Ontario, including the Toronto, Hamilton, London and Ottawa markets.

The Atlas series of UHF solid-state DTV transmitters, which ranges from 1.25 kW to 13.5 kW, features liquid-cooled LDMOS FET power amplifier modules and the Apex Series digital 8-VSB exciter with Real-time Adaptive Correction (RTAC). It also includes a redundant control system and serial bus broadband architecture to ensure high levels of reliability and on-air availability.
