Nucomm is HD-Ready with New 7 Series

Nucomm’s full ENG/OB product line is now capable of HD operation using built-in encoding/decoding technology. The Hackettstown, N.J., company unveiled its new 7 Series HD and HD-ready product lines, which can be delivered with HD or SD capabilities. (It can be field-upgraded to HD via a software key.)

All 7 Series product lines contain typical Nucomm features, including multiple modulation modes (VSB, COFDM, DVB-S, FM) and dual/tri-band RF outputs.

Until now (with the exception of CamPac2 and Newscaster DR), Nucomm products were not capable of HD operation without a third-party HD encoder and decoder products. Products in the 7 Series include Channel Master TX7 portable transmitter, Channel Master RX7 portable receiver, Newscaster VT7 ENG/OB van transmitter, and the Newscaster CR7 central receiver.

Full production rollout is set for March.
