MRC introduces MTX5000

The MTX5000 offers IP file transfer over ENG as well as live SD and HD feeds.

Microwave Radio Communications (MRC) unveiled the MTX5000 ENG edge access transmission system at NAB2007.

The MTX5000 offers all of the normal features of a typical ENG mobile transmitter, but adds a unique set of additional features, including:

  • Integrated SD/HD encoding at 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 profiles;
  • A multimode modulator that supports DVB-T COFDM, DVB-S & S2, single carrier, LMS-T, FM, and VSB;
  • IP encapsulation and return data support;
  • ASI multiplex and remux;
  • Remote control;
  • AC-3 transport;
  • Newsroom LAN access;
  • Support for future data return link (DRL).

The MTX5000 supports the simultaneous transmission of live, encoded SD or HD via several transmission formats and streaming of existing video files via IP to the studio. Local control is accomplished via touch screen and keypad, which are duplicated in the remote control interface that may be accessed via 10/100 networking.
