Rennes (France), September 02, 2016 – TeamCast, the world-renowned leader in digital modulation technologies for Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) and Satellite Applications, is introducing a multi-standard version of its successful TWISTER Digital TV exciter.
Designed as a ready-to-use 1RU rack modulator/exciter to be integrated inside new and existing TV transmitters systems, TWISTER offers several key features to ease the integration within the transmitter design and to achieve top class of RF performances. This includes a state-of-the- art Digital Adaptive Pre-correction mechanism (GAP®), an Automatic Gain Control (AGC) process to ensure the correct output power stability and a monitoring of key transmitting power figures such as Forward Transmitted Power and Reflected Power levels.
Originally designed for DVB-T and DVB-T2 markets, the product now supports ISDB-T/TB and DTMB standards. This in particular addresses the needs for Broadcasters in South-America, Philippines, China and Cambodia to upgrade and renew their existing transmitters. This also provides the opportunity for TX manufacturers who have already integrated TWISTER within their designs to enlarge their business footprint worldwide!
« With TWISTER now supporting ISDB-T/TB and DTMB, we continue our strategy to provide all markets with very reliable and cost-effective digital exciters, bringing constantly improving performance. The cutting-edge digital adaptive pre-correction algorithm implemented into TWISTER, aims at reaching significant gain in terms of transmitter power efficiency, thus reducing utility expenses that contributes in reducing recurrent OPEX costs for Broadcasters in most of countries», says Eric PINSON, Business Unit and Sales Manager at TeamCast.
The new multi-standard TWISTER is shown on TeamCast’s booth #2B.51.
