The new high-power medium-wave S7HP neo transmitter range, based on design and technologies developed for the defence market, is being debuted.
The range is the latest generation of Thomson radio transmitters and results from years of R&D, said the company. Amplifier modules are fed by optical fibre links, while the implementation of the latest generation of Silicium Carbide SiC junction transistors allows higher circuit efficiencies for excellent reliability, according to Thomson.
Also new is a compact off-grid power system based on renewable energy sources. Thomson Broadcast said these units can help a broadcaster save money while guaranteeing continuous operations.
