HACKETTSTOWN, NJ - RF Extreme, a business unit within The Vitec Group's VideoCom Division, and a leading digital microwave technology provider, is introducing the PSRX6D Portable Suitcase Six-way and MobilCMDR Hand-held Two-way COFDM diversity receivers.
Ideal for government applications such as airborne downlinks and mobile vehicles that operate in tactical and/or strategic settings, the PSRX6D is capable of receiving microwave signals from two, four, or six different antennas while the MobilCMDR can receive microwave signals from two different antennas. Both receivers select the best antenna and combine inputs to provide a superior non-line-of-sight video. With the enhanced OLED screen, the monitors can be seen even in the brightness of sunlight.
Building on the success of its modular RFX-RMR-X6-II receivers, RF Extreme's two new receivers deliver new advancements, capabilities and represent the latest in maximum ratio combining technology. The PSRX6D and MobilCMDR offer superior diversity reception with new cutting-edge features including on screen display, ethernet monitoring for remote control access and IP encapsulation for Internet broadcast. Among their other attributes is the ability to deliver either SD or HD (SDI) video, depending on which built-in decoder is specified. Both units are equipped with a straightforward operating design, compact chassis and come with optional recording capabilities. Both new microwave video receivers are available in L-Band, S-Band and C-Band frequency ranges and have AES decryption capabilities that make them ideal for applications ranging from public safety monitoring to covert surveillance.
"We are very excited to be able to introduce our two new receivers that have an emphasis on government, law enforcement and security applications," says Nathan Lader, RF Extreme VP of government programs. "All of the features of these new products allow RF Extreme to provide an unequaled value in a high quality COFDM receiver/monitor."
The PSRX6D is a ruggedized COFDM (DVB-T compliant) six-way diversity portable receiver/monitor. The unit displays COFDM video transmissions using a built-in internal 10" or 12" ultra bright daylight readable display.
Consisting of four built-in Block Down Converters, two with internal antennas and two for use with high-power external directional antennas, the PSRX6D also has two UHF input ports for optional external Down Converters, enabling the user to have true 6-way diversity or dual-band capabilities. The PSRX6D runs off internal batteries, external +12VDC or AC via an external power supply.
The MobilCMDR HD (C-COFDM M-Mobile D-Diversity R-Receiver for HD video) offers superb H.264 decoding and displays COFDM video transmissions using a built-in internal 7.6 inch 16:9 format screen.
The MobilCMDR allows multiple remote viewers to monitor the same video simultaneously. Its milled aluminum chassis and ergonomic hand grips are weather resistant.
"Both receivers have been successful in mission-critical environments," adds Lader. "Coupled with our airborne transmitter or our remotely deployable suitcase transmitter, these receiver units provide the user a complete enhanced microwave video system for any situational awareness application."
