Wisycom Introduces MRK90 Ultra-Wideband Wireless Receiver

Wisycom has introduced the MRK980 Ultra-Wideband True Diversity Receiver

Wisycom said the two-channel receiver features 1090MHz of switching bandwidth covering VHF, UHF and 900MHz bands in one rack mount unit. This opens up many additional RF possibilities for broadcast studios, touring companies and performance venues that are challenged by the shrinking RF spectrum.

Working in conjunction with the company's  linear transmit technology, the system provides as many as 30 channels in one 6MHz TV channel. With the Wisycom MRK980, no calculations are required. Users will not experience intermodulation distortion from external signal processing equipment, which is typical of conventional systems.

The receiver’s DSP-FM technology also provides very narrowband channel filters that yield 50 percent more band efficiency and 200- to 250-KHz channel spacing. This gives an additional 3dB of sensitivity and noise immunity, which is equivalent to doubling power and greatly increasing range.

The MRK980 also includes Dante compatibility, analog and digital outputs and an optional push-to-talk (PTT) function for off-line communication to monitor engineers, performers, presenters and others on the network.
