Las Vegas, NV, February 18, 2009 – RF Central, part of The Vitec Group’s RF Systems business unit, and a leading digital microwave technology provider, is rolling out an expanded product offering in its RFX-PRX-II portable handheld COFDM monitor/receiver at NAB 2009 (Booth C3707). Ideal for a wide range of applications including ENG confidence monitoring and security surveillance, this lightweight palm-sized receiver (available in 2 GHz, 5.8 GHz and 6.4 GHz bands) is packaged in a compact housing that spans just 16 x 12 x 3.8 centimeters. To ensure durability, the system is fully ruggedized using an ABS plastic shell.
“RF Central has taken its signature RFX-PRX to new heights by streamlining its system into a smaller and more compact design,” says RF Systems President Stephen Shpock. “With the RFX-PRX-II, ENG crews, TV production directors and police agencies are provided with the ability to receive microwave signals for technical, confidence or security monitoring applications that require mobile receive equipment.”
Delivering extreme sensitivity, the PRX-II is equipped with a 5.6 inch high-resolution screen and offers record and playback capabilities via a user replaceable flash memory card. The product can serve as a monitor/receiver and can additionally output composite or SVGA video and audio. Additionally, the PRX-II is CE approved and RoHS compliant. The unit receives COFDM DVB-T modulation in QPSK, 16 QAM and 64 QAM modes.
