Anywave to offer ATSC 3.0 “one stop shopping” at NAB 2023; several unique new products to be introduced
ATSC 3.0 exciter with built in gateway headlines the new products
Anywave Communication Technologies Inc. (Anywave), the only major US owned TV transmitter supplier, will be unveiling several important and unique new products at NAB 2023 in Las Vegas, NV. Heading the list is a new ATSC 3.0 exciter that offers a built-in ATSC 3.0 gateway! This is a perfect solution for LPTV stations, and any station that does not have a studio separate from the transmitter site. The exciter/gateway is fully contained in a single 1 rack unit module, and offers unmatched performance and signal quality. Anywave designs and manufactures the exciter/gateway themselves, so instead of a collection of third party boxes, this solution offers the broadcaster a single US source for the ATSC 3.0 transmission chain – gateway, exciter, and transmitter.
For stations with a separate studio, Anywave also offers the gateway itself as a standalone product.
The new 3.0 exciter also works as an ATSC 1.0 exciter, so a station broadcasting in 1.0 will not need to add new hardware when converting to 3.0. Like many Anywave exciters, it also comes with an RF input, allowing it to be used as a translator. Again, this works for 1.0 and 3.0 services, so the future upgrade is simple.
Anywave will also be showing its complete and highly advanced line of low/medium and high power transmitters (air and liquid cooled), which include SFN transmitters and high performance gap fillers, on all bands, UHF, VHF I and VHF III. The company will also introduce several new encoders, including ones that incorporate MPEG-2, MPEG-4, and HEVC, all in one platform.
David Neff, General Manager at Anywave remarked, “We have been very busy developing unique new products to help the broadcaster navigate the ATSC 3.0 transition in a more efficient way. We now offer a very complete product line that is unmatched in the industry. If you aren’t familiar with Anywave, I urge you to take a look at these impressive products.”
Anywave (anywavecom.net) is based in Vernon Hills, IL, near Chicago. NAB 2023 booth is W1853.
