Axcera to Soup Up Airwaves With New Innovator Low-power Transmitters

Axcera will power up at Vegas with its new Innovator CX Low Power Solid State DTV Transmitter/Translator, designed for DTV translator operators and community broadcasters.

The new Innovator CX is available at power levels up to 50 Watt ATSC in a single, 5 1/4-inch rackmount package and up to 350 Watt ATSC with an available external amplifier module. The Innovator CX can be configured as an ATSC transmitter, a regenerative translator or a heterodyne translator.

The Innovator CX offers many of the same features found in Axcera's higher-power transmitters, including Axcera's broadcast-quality ATSC modulator with digital linear and nonlinear precorrection, a frequency agile exciter, broadband amplifiers and even an available SNMP/Web browser interface.

Axcera will also introduce the Innovator LX B-Line low-power solid-state transmitters and translators, which includes a modular frequency agile exciter and available SNMP and Web browser capability. It can be configured for operation as an analog, ATSC or DVB-T/DVB-H transmitter, translator or booster, and as a "Dual-Use" digital/analog backup transmitter.

Also new from Axcera, the new DR8A-R is a broadcast-quality ATSC receiver/modulator designed to convert nearly any analog translator or transmitter into a regenerative DTV translator. The DR8A-R uses advanced ATSC receiver technology, using input signal equalization that recognizes and corrects for both leading and lagging multipath interference, even if the interference is equal in level to the desired receive signal.

Axcera will be in booth C2524.
