2008 NAB Extra!
ZX5000: The ZX5000 transmitter is the latest entry in Harris' range of ZX transmitters, now comprising five models ranging from 500W to 5kW of power. The Harris ZX5000 offers a compact size for a 5kW transmitter for both analog FM and HD Radio broadcasting and comes in a single-rack size with an exciter and signal processing gear. As with other ZX transmitters, the ZX5000 supports tri-mode operation with on-the-fly switching between analog FM operation, HD Radio digital-only operation, or FM/HD Radio common amplification broadcasting.
High-resolution audio recorder/mixer
Fusion: This system replaces the multiple mixers and portable recorders normally required to support mixing and recording of audio via RF link or hardwired cable. Fusion can mix 16 inputs to eight output buses for recording up to eight tracks. Fusion eliminates the use of a hard drive, which additionally removes concerns of hard drive damage from extreme temperatures or motion. The system records to two Compact Flash cards simultaneously, ensuring 100 percent solid-state recording that provides redundancy and flexibility. With the Fusion's DSP-based audio tools, users can adjust over 300 mixer cross points and 200 controllable parameters. Four balanced AES inputs with sample rate conversion allow eight channels of audio to come from four different devices with varying sample rates or unlocked sample rate clocks.
Booth SU 5613
E-Rack: Available in a variety of heights and depths, the Stantron E-Rack simplifies mounting of ground bars and lacing of cable. The E-Rack is 22" wide for high-density cabling. Its doors open 180 degrees, cable chase access panels remove without tools and provide kinkless cable runs.
Booth C 7508
RMAS8 and RMAS8 PRO: These are 24-output dual transformer isolated audio splitters. Both units feature eight Switchcraft XLR front-panel inputs with a line level pad and two ground-lift toggle switches. On the back, four DB25 connectors wired to the Tascam DTRS standard pinout can be used to accommodate all of the units I/Os. The RMAS8 Pro features Jensen magnetically shielded dual isolated audio transformeres and has a third set of I/O connections utilizing Phoenix terminal blocks.
Phonetic-based search system
Phonetica2: Phonetica2 is a phonetic-based search system for digital audio and is available as an integrated module in Enco's Digital Audio Delivery system. The module allows users to search through a library of audio files containing spoken material and find specific words or phrases simply by typing them.
Zephyr Iport MPEG Gateway: Using the Livewire protocaol for networked audio over Ethernet, this codec connects directly to an Axia IP-audio network. A single CAT-6 cable carries eight channels of stereo I/O and remote control. The Iport connects eight channels of stereo audio between two Livewire-equipped sites over an IP link. The Iport can also be used for any application where MPEG encoding and/or decoding are needed for transmission over IP channels. Applications include studio-to-transmitter links, satellite uplinks, Internet streaming, broadcasting to mobile phones and audio distribution systems.
Low-cost amplifier modules
Power Module Technology
RF Amplifier Series: These modules range from 88-92MHz and 88-108MHz, and are available in power levels ranging from 50 to 500W. All modules are housed on compact circuit boards measuring no larger than 5.67" x 7.625". The lower-power modules are even smaller.
