Thomson Broadcast to show Futhura Plus transmitter at NAB 2012

Thomson Broadcast has announced it will show its Futhura Plus TV transmitter at NAB 2012 in April.

The transmitter offers broadcasters substantial energy savings, with a 50 percent improvement in efficiency over current standard transmitters on the market.

Using innovative drain modulation technology, the environmentally friendly Futhura Plus represents a major advance toward meeting lower energy consumption targets in the broadcast industry. The transmitter's greatly reduced power requirements offer operational cost savings that can have a considerable impact on the performance of a broadcast business, substantially outstripping the return on investment of any transmitter on the market today.

Thomson's fully automatic real-time Digital Adaptive Pre-correction (DAP) technology corrects linear and nonlinear distortions, while low-operating junction transistor temperatures contribute to exceptional and extended durability.
