Wisycom Introduces Active Combiner/Splitters at NAB

At NAB, Wisycom will introduce the 2200 Series (SPL2216 and SPL2208) Active Combiner/Splitters which feature 16- and eight-diversity channel outputs, respectively.

As the next generation of antenna distribution multi-couplers, Wisycom’s 2200 Series improves wireless microphone workflows. The system’s diversity and linking features make it ideal for applications with distributed antenna systems, such as talk shows, awards shows, live sports broadcasts and other televised entertainment events.

With multiple receivers fed via diversity antennas or through Wisycom’s MAT288 Antenna Matrix, the new 2200 Series’ multi-couplers add gain and input for either two coverage zones or multiple MAT288s.

This is the industry’s first-ever multi-coupler with multiple inputs and double the outputs, up to 16 receivers or 32 channels from one 2216, as well as remote control of Wisycom’s BFA and LFA antenna products through coax cable.

Using the combiner/splitter, broadcasters can combine or select signals from up to two (2x2 diversity) antenna inputs to feed 16x2 (SPL2216) or 8x2 (SPL2208) diversity outputs. By connecting two units, the system can be set up in a cascading arrangement that covers up to four zones to feed as many as 32 receivers.

The SPL2216/2208 can be controlled with the push of a button, or through Wisycom Manager, allowing for a quick and easy matrix selection between two diversity inputs. It also offers a redundant DC supply, which ensures the system will encounter no loss of power.
