2010 NAB Extra!
NX Series: With power outputs ranging from 25kW to 2000kW, this transmitter series offers AM adaptive pre-correction, ac to RF efficiency of 90 percent, linearity utilizing a nine-phase Direct Digital Modulation scheme encoded at 2.7 mega-samples per second, and a footprint requiring 1/3 to 1/2 less space than other transmitters. A touch-screen controller plus remote Web access are standard.
Optimod-FM 5500: The 5500 combines the functionality of Orban's Optimod-FM 5300 and 2300 processors in a compact 1RU chassis. It features five- and two-band processing (including stereo generator), plus a stand-alone stereo generator mode that offers performance equivalent to the stereo generator in the Orban Optimod-FM 8500 and 8600 processors. New in the 5500 is a 10MHz frequency reference input that allows the 19kHz pilot tone frequency to be locked to GPS or another high-accuracy frequency standard. In addition, a cool-running switching power supply saves energy and reduces heat build-up inside the chassis.
Broadcast stereo headset
BPHS1: The BPHS1 broadcast stereo headset with dynamic boom microphone offers natural, highly intelligible stereo reproduction. The rugged BPHS1 features closed-back around-the-ear ear cups designed to provide maximum comfort and ambient noise rejection with minimal ear fatigue. The headset also has a professional boom-mounted moving coil dynamic microphone that can be positioned for use on either side of the mouth. It is specifically intended and optimized for on-air or live news and sports broadcasting, announcing and interviews.
Wireless audio interfaces
BlueDriver Series: The BlueDriver series of audio interface adapters use Bluetooth wireless technology. BlueDriver-F3 plugs directly into a dynamic mic or the mic-level output from a A Bluetooth-equipped cell phone or headset. The 3.5mm stereo jack contains a mic-level output suitable for recording, with the clean mic signal on the left channel and the Bluetooth return on the right. BlueDriver-M3 plugs into the mic input channel of a mixer. The 3.5mm jack will accept a signal from the headphone output of the mixer for transmission back to the cell phone or headset. A switch on either unit selects between connection to a third-party Bluetooth headset, or a cell phone.
Nx6: Contained in a slim 2RU chassis, the Nx6 contains four adaptive digital hybrids with advanced DSP technology to give callers better sound. It supports up to six analog or digital phone lines. Each of the four hybrids is equipped with individually adjustable AGC and noise gate by Omnia. Combined with Telos' Digital Dynamic EQTM (DDEQ) and adaptive hybrid technology, the Nx6 delivers caller-to-caller consistency whether using POTS or ISDN. The Nx6 package includes one Desktop Director, and Assistant Producer call screening software.
