August 3, 2017
HACKETT’S COVE, Nova Scotia – Nautel Limited has shipped six additional high-power DRM-enabled MW transmitters for deployment at All India Radio, the largest digital broadcasting system in the world. Four 100 kW NX100 and two 200 kW NX200 transmitters were shipped to India for installation in six cities. The transmitters will be commissioned by Nautel’s in-country partner Comcon in association with India’s Prasar Bharati. The July 2017 shipment of the six complements the 27 NX transmitters which are already on- air with DRM transmission throughout India.
The goal of the project is bringing digital radio to nearly a billion residents of the country. The new transmitters will be installed at All India Radio facilities in Hyderabad, Jagdalpur, Vishakhapatnam, Bhawanipatna, Jeypore and Sambalpur. All 33 transmitters in the AIR project are configured for DRM30 operation. (We previously covered the installation of NX transmitters in India here.)
Nautel NX high power transmitters occupy a small footprint and offer high efficiency (90%) along with AM pre-correction, high linearity and Nautel’s Advanced User Interface, which provides commercial grade instrumentation, spectrum analyzer, logging, presets, local and remote transmitter control, email notifications and enhanced support services.
