CINCINNATI—GatesAir is offering Platinum Z and ZX transmitter owners an upgrade to the Flexiva exciter. The Flexiva Power-Up Program increases power levels of elevated HD Radio sidebands and provides competitive analog audio improvements.
By switching to the Flexiva FAX-50 FM exciter from the Platinum Z and ZX transmitters, users are able to raise HD Radio power by 237 percent. GatesAir’s hybrid crest factor reduction methods to increase output power broaden market penetration for HD Radio broadcasters. In addition, the Flexiva FAX enables hybrid FM/HD broadcasters to increase transmitter analog power by up to 33 percent.
Upgrades to the current-generation Flexiva importer and exporter units ensure multichannel and audio quality benefits of a complete Gen4 Engine architecture. The importer, exporter and exciter units also eliminate spinning disks for 100 percent solid-state operation.
The Flexiva Power-Up package includes the FAX-50 FM/HD radio exciter, an installation kit with cables and mounting hardware, and a video installation guide.
