Thomson Broadcast, based in France, will focus on its energy and cost saving abilities at IBC, featuring its environmentally friendly range of GreenPower transmitters including the new medium-power range Elite 100 GreenPower series. At any rate, the Elite 1000 GreenPower transmitter line is more energy efficient than its predecessor, consuming 15 percent less power. Utilizing Thomson real-time Digital Adaptive Precorrection (DAP), the Elite 1000 GreenPower line provides good DTV transmission efficiency, optimized output power and high redundancy.

Thomson will also show its DVB-T2 exciter for broadcasters who want to migrate to the second generation DVB-T2 standard or for digital providers wanting to upgrade to DVB-T2 for greater bandwidth efficiency. The Elite exciter also supports the ISDB-T system, which is used for digital television broadcast in South America. Also featured will be the Elite 10 Repeater — Multichannel Version, designed for rapid deployment for indoor or outdoor operation, with switchable transposer mode and an ultra-efficient two-level digital echo canceller.
