Nucomm highlighted its Newscaster DR 2 diversity receiver at HD World 2009, which closed today at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.
The updated model of its Newscaster DR predecessor, the DR 2 offers new features, including a split box and the ability to receive UHF digital signals in the 150MHz to 850MHz band.
Because the DR 2 can receive lower frequency UHF digital signals, the unit works with external block downconverters (BDC). The DR 2 can be supplied with BDCs that can receive a wide range of frequencies from 1.99GHz to 7.1GHz.
The DR 2 is equipped with four RF inputs that communicate directly to the external BDCs, which form a maximum ratio combination that offers up to four input diversity receive signals.
