Vortex II comes as a very optimized and unique platform supporting the ATSC 3.0 terrestrial TV standard. With this new product, TeamCast is sharing its experience in designing and operating the 3nd Generation of ATSC Terrestrial Standards. Vortex II succeeds to its predecessor, the exTra3.0 exciter, the first generation of ATSC 3.0 introduced by TeamCast at the genesis of this new standard on the market. This early period has been very important for TeamCast to be now in position to propose on the market a very optimized and future proof exciter product for this new standard. Whereas exTra3.0 model was addressing the demand for early tests & trials, Vortex II is dedicated to commercial ATSC 3.0 roll-outs worldwide.
Vortex II comes as a 1-RU rack exciter that supports both ATSC 1.0 and ATSC 3.0 modulation waveforms on the same hardware platform. It has been especially designed to meet early ATSC 3.0 adopters’ plan to commercially deploy this new terrestrial TV unmatched technology. It also meets transmitter manufacturer’s demand for integrating a “ready-touse”and straight-forward high-end exciter within their new ATSC 3.0 transmitter designs.
