GatesAir AES-192 Solution Breaks New Ground in Signal Transport over IP for Radio Broadcasters

IP Link is industry’s first IP Audio codec to support AES-192 standard from studio to transmitter, adapting to all leading on-air processors

CINCINNATI, April 2, 2014GatesAir, a global leader in over-the-air broadcast solutions for television and radio, today announced a continuation of its legacy of innovation in over-the-air broadcasting with the industry’s first end-to-end, interoperable solution for transporting AES-192 signals over IP. The transformative solution, to be on display at the 2014 NAB Show (Las Vegas Convention Center, April 7-10, Booth N609) gives broadcasters the first truly reliable, cost-reducing way to move program audio — and all program-associated data — as a digital composite stereo signal, allowing a seamless migration from legacy analog connections.

“Broadcasters are interested in the higher quality audio signals that AES-192 transport can achieve, as it eliminates analog conversion processes that can degrade signals as they pass through the air chain,” said Rich Redmond, chief product officer GatesAir. “The GatesAir customer-first approach ensures that broadcasters will save a lot of money by requiring less conversion equipment, while maintaining the best possible signal integrity. We maximize opportunities for customers with the industry’s only solution to reliably carry a complete bit stream coming out of the on-air processor and packetizing it via IP, all while applying forward error correction and redundant streams.”

The complete solution utilizes the Intraplex® IP Link™ and Flexiva™ FAX exciter at its core, giving broadcasters a transformational end-to-end architecture to leverage next-generation digital signal transport techniques. The IP Link, regarded for its robust and feature-rich transport capabilities, is the first codec in the industry to support AES-192 transport over the network. IP Link uses all available networks to ensure audio and data reach their destination intact and without interruption, feeding AES-192 streams directly into the FAX exciter for over-the-air delivery. This eliminates additional processing stages at the transmitter site, allowing broadcasters to safely move those components back to the studio.

The GatesAir solution works across any of three leading on-air processor brands (Omnia, Orban and Wheatstone) and is equipped to deliver stereo composite baseband over AES-192. This flexibility ensures that broadcasters aren’t locked into using a specific solution, freeing them to use their preferred processing platform to maintain a high-quality digital signal across the entire transport chain.

The robust, reliable end-to-end connectivity of the entire solution means that broadcasters interested in using AES-192 to establish a high-quality digital link can safely rely on the IP network for transport. The high-speed nature of AES-192 transport — typically 4.5MB/s per stream — requires a robust solution to ensure successful delivery of these signals.

Visitors to 2014 NAB Show Booth N609 can see a complete, interoperable GatesAir AES-192 transport demonstration using the IP Link with Flexiva exciters and over-the-air transmitters.

Vietnam Television Calls on Jampro Again for VHF and UHF Antennas

Sacramento, CA — Jampro Antennas of Sacramento, California has been awarded another contract by Vietnam Television (VTV) to supply two high-power broadband antennas, one for VHF Band III transmission, the other for UHF. Both antennas will provide coverage of CanTho, the fifth largest city in Vietnam, and the largest city in the Mekong delta.

“This follows a major 2011 order for ten Jampro DVB-T (Digital TV) antenna systems that were installed at sites located throughout the Socialist Republic of Vietnam,” said Alex M. Perchevitch, Jampro president. “For many years, we supplied Voice of Vietnam (VOV), the founder of VTV, with radio broadcast antennas. That excellent relationship and the proven field performance of our equipment led to this latest award.”

The JHD-HV4 is a half wave spaced, horizontally polarized flat panel, dual-dipole high-band VHF antenna that can broadcast on Band III at 174 to 230 MHz. Rugged galvanized steel construction ensures many years of dependable performance. The JHD antenna has been proven to have excellent bandwidth and VSWR. It’s ideal for VTV’s broadband/multi-channel op¬erations. Many standard and custom directional patterns are available to fit VTV’s coverage requirements.

The JUHD UHF antenna was selected by VTV for two primary reasons. Due to a modular design, it gives VTV flexibility to configure various elevation patterns so coverage can be customized to suit the topographical challenges of Vietnam which range from flat deltas to mountainous areas exceeding 3,000 meters. VTV engineers worked with Jampro’s technical staff to customize patterns to optimize coverage for the sites.

Secondly, the JUHD antenna’s robust stainless steel construction has proven reliable in hot, wet tropical climates. Fiberglass radomes provide additional panel protection.

Jampro is also providing its own manufactured Proline brand of rigid transmission line for both installations and related RF components.

Vietnam Television, or VTV, is the national television broadcaster for Vietnam. Each major city and most of the 64 provinces have their own TV stations. VTV broadcasts several terrestrial cable, satellite and regional channels, plus an international channel.

Canadian Broadcasting Vancouver Taps Jampro for High-Power FM Antenna System

Sacramento, CA — Jampro Antennas, headquartered in Sacramento, California, was awarded a contract by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to supply a high-power FM antenna system to provide very specific directional coverage of the Vancouver, British Columbia DMA. Broadcasting from a tower atop 4,754 foot high Mount Seymour, a Jampro model JAHD Arrowhead Dipole panel antenna will provide the CBC with above average pattern stability and axial control so as not to interfere with adjacent U.S. border stations.

“This JAHD system provides the power and specific coverage that CBC requires, but also the sustainability to survive an extremely harsh mountain environment compounded by heavy winter icing of the Pacific Maritime climate,” said Alex M. Perchevitch, president of Jampro.

In addition to the 100kw JAHD FM panel antenna, Jampro provided an equipment package consisting of a high power Jampro RCCC constant impedance combiner to combine 5 frequencies, along with an RCPU patch panel/ power splitter system, Jampro Proline rigid transmission line and related RF accessories.

The JAHD is designed for Bands I, II (FM), and III and is easily adaptable for multi-station use. The antenna can be config¬ured to provide various azimuth and elevation patterns. By using op¬tional beam tilt and null fill, the elevation pattern can be shaped to maximize coverage. The design of this circularly polarized antenna may be configured to include varying levels of vertical polarization, with results ranging from small amounts of elliptical polarization to full circular polarization.

Jampro’s RCCC FM Constant Impedance Combiner family has a compact modular design that can be configured to fit into the smallest transmitter rooms. A simple modular design allows the easy addition of frequencies as needed. These combiners use temperature compensated Bandpass Filters which have an integrated heat sink top. This keeps filters cool and locked on frequencies.

The Jampro RCPU is a low effort patch panel with rock-solid connection and low insertion loss. No tools are needed to make patch, rather a positive lock mechanism assures quick and easy re-direction of the RF signal path. It’s ideal for patching RF feeds to emergency antenna, alternate main/auxiliary transmitter, filter by-pass, master station combiner re-route and test point insertion. It is available in several sizes, with optional signal flow indicator panel, dual line power splitter and/or power measuring/VSWR.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (Société Radio-Canada), commonly known as CBC and officially as CBC/Radio-Canada, is a Canadian crown corporation that serves as the national public radio and television broadcaster. Radio-Canada is the national French-language broadcast arm of the corporation.
