DRM experience on stand15 September 2017
All India Radio has added to its massive digital radio deployment with four 100kW and two 200kW Nautel NX transmitters. The system, the largest DRM deployment in the world, is a hot topic on Nautel’s IBC2017 stand.
Nautel recently shipped six additional high-power DRM-enabled MW transmitters for deployment in the system. Four 100kW NX100 and two 200kW NX200 transmitters were shipped for installation in six cities. The transmitters will be commissioned by Nautel’s in-country partner Comcon in association with India’s Prasar Bharati.
These six transmitters complement the 27 NX transmitters which are already on air with DRM transmission throughout India. The massive project has the goal of bringing digital radio to nearly a billion residents of the country. The new transmitters will be installed at All India Radio (AIR) facilities in Hyderabad, Jagdalpur, Vishakhapatnam, Bhawanipatna, Jeypore and Sambalpur. All 33 transmitters in the AIR project are configured for DRM30 operation.
Nautel NX high-power transmitters occupy a very small footprint and offer 90 per cent efficiency along with AM precorrection, unmatched linearity and Nautel’s Advanced User Interface which provides commercial-grade instrumentation, spectrum analyser, logging, presets, local and remote transmitter control, email notifications and enhanced support services.
