About THOMSON BROADCAST
- **NEW** Low- power range: Designed for rapid digital television deployment, the new low-power transmitter ranging from 20W to 150W RMS, adapts to any location. This ultra-compact transmitter offers many options such as a built-in 1+1 redundancy to adapt to any SFN or MFN network. Agile over the UHF band, DVB-T and DVB-T2 dualcast, up to 8 PLP’s are supported to allow broadcasters the mix of diverse mobile and fixed services within a single RF channel, delivering maximum efficiency.
- **NEW** Medium- power range: Offering from 200W to 3kW RMS, the new medium-power range is perfectly suited to the deployment of energy-efficient networks or network extensions. With a modular design, it offers the best cost efficiency accommodating up to 6 completely autonomous 400W transmitters or 3 autonomous 750W transmitters in a unique cabinet. This range features latest advanced technologies for next-generation broadcasting such as MPLP support and dualcast DVB-T/DVB-T2 for easy migrations.
- **NEW** autonomous solar transmission system: With more than 20 years’ expertise in energy conversion within the Arelis group and 100 years of Thomson digital deployments all over the world, this new offer of autonomous solar transmission system features the best cost-efficient performance for off-grid and green alternative transmission sites. Suited to low-power 4G and broadcast applications this photovoltaic system can be sized to fit to any environment thanks to an autonomous modular design.
