Axcera introduced its new Axciter, a feature-rich digital ATSC exciter-modulator, at NAB2006.
The Axciter is the company's second-generation, fully adaptive digital television exciter-modulator system and the successor to its DT2B fully adaptive exciter.
The new Axciter offers 100 percent digital signal processing technology, allowing it to evolve as broadcast requirements change. The Axciter is designed for simple field upgrades to new operating modes, such as DTx slave, EVSB, Watermark or even other yet to be adopted ATSC enhancements, by inserting a USB flash drive into one of the three available USB ports and executing the upgrade through the front panel GUI. This ensures operability and optimal performance well into the future.
All Axciters include Axcera adaptive correction technology, AXACT, the newest version of Axcera's continuously adaptive linear and nonlinear pre-correction technology, as well as DTVision integrated DTV signal analysis, which samples the transmitter output and measures critical transmitter performance parameters.
