Nucomm unveiled the Newscaster DR 2 diversity receiver, an updated model of its Newscaster DR, at IBC2008.
The Newscaster DR 2 offers new features including a split-box design and the ability to receive UHF digital signals in the 150MHz-850MHz band.
Because the DR 2 is designed to receive lower-frequency UHF digital signals, the unit works with external block downconverters. The DR2 can be supplied with block downconverters that can receive a wide range of frequencies from 1.99GHz to 7.1GHz.
The DR 2 is capable of receiving up to four RF inputs from the external block downconverters. This allows for the use of four high-gain sector antennas that deliver video reception of a mobile or camera-mounted transmitter.
