Solid-state FM transmitters
NV Series: Building on the NV40, Nautel now offers FM output power ranging from 3.5kW to 44kW with the following product models: NV3.5, NV5, NV7.5, NV10, NV15, NV20, NV30 and the flagship NV40. The NV Series of products offer several unique capabilities. An Advanced User Interface provides more control with access from virtually anywhere, and the AUI increases station efficiency by making it easy for engineers to monitor and control their Nautel transmitters. Nautel provides a control system with a 17" touch screen interface that manages the whole transmitter and multiple exciters. Real-time instrument-grade spectral analysis allows a station engineers to quickly ensure that the station's signal is optimized for digital broadcast. All NV Series transmitters are digital-ready, allowing a plug-in Exgine upgrade to HD Radio broadcasting. Adaptive pre-correction provides linearity and IBOC transmission with no need for additional filters. Common modules across the product line are a plus for customers with multiple transmission sites.
BRIC-Link: BRIC-Link transmits audio over IP networks and is suited for point-to-point “nailed up” audio links over a wide variety of data circuits including ISM band IP radios, T1/E1s, satellite data channels, WANs and LANs. Contained in a small, desktop package, two BRIC-Links can be mounted in a 1RU rack space. Balanced analog ¼" I/O, as well as switchable AES I/O, four contact closures, ancillary data and consumer level front panel I/O for monitoring are provided on BRIC-Link's compact and rugged chassis.
High-speed digital audio router
Titan: The Titan BC 2000 D router/concentrator is designed to serve as the audio switching core in critical systems. It is equipped with five bidirectional optical fiber ports that use non-blocking architecture. Each port is capable of connecting up to 1,024 channels. As with the rest of the BC 2000 D, the control system is based upon the TCP/IP architecture. Communication with its two controller boards working in cluster mode provides control interface access via a single virtual IP. Audio connections are made within the BC 2000 D system by means of the five bidirectional fiber-optic ports, and are directly compatible with the BC 2213 high speed router linking module.
