HACKETTS COVE, NOVA SCOTIA � Broadcast transmitter manufacturer Nautel Limited has released the GV30, the latest model in the GV Series of Digital FM transmitters.
The compact GV30 provides up to 33 kW of analog power or 27 kW of analog power in -14dB hybrid mode, and is more than 20 percent smaller and is even more efficient than its predecessor.
The GV series, introduced at the 2014 NAB Show, incorporates MER instrumentation, HD PowerBoost, SNMP support, ShoutCast and IceCast streaming input, PushRadio with scheduler and play lists, Axia Livewire IP audio support, MPX over AES functionality and optional Orban Inside onboard audio processing.
Other GV Series features include:
� A new Spectrum / Efficiency Optimizer that automatically monitors the transmitter and dynamically adjusts parameters to meet the spectrum mask
� RDS PS scrolling for song title and artist displays (fed via RS232 or IP), with 25 positions available in the alternate frequency table
� Automatic audio loss switchback has been added to audio loss switchover
� Control via the AUI, with definable security/access levels
� A new oscilloscope view for the AUI which monitors audio source signals in the time domain
� Site control functions have been added for monitoring and control of items external to the transmitter, such as doors or generators
� Along with MER measurement, a full suite of digital radio instrumentation is available with a spectrum analyzer and constellation view, supporting Nautel HD Reliable Transport
� Built-in PAPR/Crest factor reduction
� 90-265V power supplies help keep transmitters on the air
The GV Series includes models ranging from 3.5 kW to 80 kW.
