Antennas Direct to Work with NAB on CEA909A-Compliant Indoor Off-Air Smart Antenna

At the NAB Show, Antennas Direct will release preliminary details on a new CEA909A compliant Indoor Off-Air Smart Antenna it is developing in partnership with NAB. The antenna is being developed under a contract from the NAB FASTROAD (Flexible Advanced Services for Television and Radio On All Devices) technology advocacy program.

“We were impressed with both the expertise and the enthusiasm at Antennas Direct for potentially improving consumer satisfaction with reception of Off-Air TV service,” said Lynn Claudy, NAB senior vice president for science and technology. “Smart antenna technology can make a huge difference in the overall consumer experience, allowing access to all local television signals without having to spend a lot of time aiming or re-aiming antennas. This technology could be a real game-changer.”

Antennas Direct will introduce several new off-air TV antennas at NAB, including the ClearStream2, a long-range outdoor antenna, and the Lacrosse Micron indoor antenna, which fits in a 10-by-10-inch package and offers a maximum gain of 8 dBi.
