dB Broadcast breaks annual sales record

dB Broadcast has enjoyed a record-breaking year for sales of its professional broadcast receiver products. Over 1000 of the MERlin DVB-T2 monitoring receiver unit, Hawkeye B104 DVB-T2 modular receiver and Showman 1000 multi-standard analogue television receiver/demodulators have been shipped. Sales of the units have been strong in Europe and North America, as well as countries such as South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Brazil. MERlin was launched in late 2011 and has been designed for continuous off air terrestrial reception and monitoring of DVB-T and DVB-T2 RF signals, or for direct monitoring of a transmitter. The Hawkeye B104 module provides terrestrial reception of DVB-T and DVB-T2 RF signals and is typically used as part of Re-Broadcast Link (RBL) transmitter systems. The Showman 1000 series can be used with PAL, SECAM and NTSC analogue television standards, allowing for operation across the world. dB Broadcast recently introduced the Hawkeye B105 DVB-T2 modular monitoring receiver that combines measurement capability, technical performance and versatility with packing density of up to 14 modules in a 3RU frame. Tom Swan, Sales and Marketing director at dB said: “Sales figures for both the MERlin and Showman in 2012 products and Hawkeye modules reflect dB’s status as a major supplier of professional broadcast receivers. As a company we’re equally committed to providing cutting-edge solutions for the digital age, while supporting existing analogue systems which remain popular in many countries”
