Comark Introduces New Air-Cooled Transmitters For The LPTV Repack Market

Hitachi Kokusai Electric Comark (“COMARK”) has announced the introduction of the E-Compact EC702MP-BB3 (250W) and EC704MP-BB3 (500W) series high-efficiency air-cooled solid-state UHF DTV transmitters.

These two new models, EC702MP-BB3 and EC704MP-BB3, now feature the latest asymmetric broadband Doherty LDMOS amplifiers (the same device as the award-winning PARALLAX® series liquid-cooled UHF transmitters). The amplifier technology allows power efficiency of up to 44%. In addition, these “BB3” models both utilize dual, commercial off-the-shelf AC to DC rectifiers for their power supply system, which utilize a front panel plug-in connection for quick service. Customers can either mount the transmitter in their existing equipment rack cabinet or an optional 10RU rack supplied by COMARK.

The air-cooled PA design includes automatic cooling fan speed control that provides lower acoustic noise levels during operation. The transmitters include a built-in web-GUI and SNMP for remote control and monitoring. The E-Compact also features EXACT-V2 IP Optimized DTV exciters with DualCast technology and is easily upgraded from ATSC 1.0 to 3.0, protecting your investment today for use tomorrow.

The E-Compact family is compact and rugged, perfectly suited for broadcasters looking to replace their current older and less efficient equipment or for future ATSC 3.0 SFN systems.
