Efficiency is the Key Factor When Choosing a High-Power Broadcast Transmitter
With energy efficiency becoming increasingly important and demanding new broadcast technologies with highly specific energy requirements coming online, broadcasters must plan their equipment deployments carefully. Of particular concern is the fact that that today’s mainstream broadcasting transmitters typically require four to five times the energy they transmit on-air. Several energy conservation technologies have been developed for improving broadcast transmitter efficiency. This white paper discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each.
