The R&S®SCx8000 transmitter family covers the analog as well as the DVB-T, DVB‑T2, DVB‑H, ISDB-T, ISDB-TB, MediaFLO™, ATSC and ATSC Mobile DTV digital TV standards. Preparations have already been made for future standards such as DVB-T2. The transmitters can be switched from analog to digital transmission. When it comes to digital audio broadcasting, the transmitter family supports transmissions in line with DAB, DAB+ and T-DMB specifications.
The R&S®SCx8000 includes broadband precorrection data for each digital standard. With output powers from 200 W to 600 W for digital TV and DAB, the R&S®SCx8000 can be used for expanding existing transmitter networks and filling coverage gaps.
Rolling out or extending a transmitter network may require large numbers of transmitters; nevertheless, costs must be kept to a minimum. Here, the R&S®SCx8000 proves to be the ideal choice: It comes with the high quality that Rohde & Schwarz stands for and offers an excellent price/ performance ratio. Follow-up costs are just as favorable: Due to its compact design, the R&S®SCx8000 reduces infrastructure, rental and installation costs. The transmitter's high efficiency ensures low energy costs throughout the product lifecycle.
Availability is the crucial factor for operators of transmitter systems. The new backup exciter redundancy concept eliminates the need for a separate transmitter control unit. This lowers costs and increases system availability. Each amplifier comes with two power supplies. This ensures high failsafety, which can be further enhanced by adding a third, optional power supply.
