All India Radio adds to massive digital radio deployment with four 100 kW and two 200 kW NX transmitters.
Hackett's Cove, Nova Scotia – Nautel Limited has shipped six additional high-power DRM-enabled MW transmitters for deployment at All India Radio, the largest digital broadcasting system in the world. Four 100 kW NX100 and two 200 kW NX200 transmitters were shipped to India in July 2017 for installation in six cities. The transmitters will be commissioned by Nautel's in-country partner Comcon in association with India's Prasar Bharati.
The July, 2017 shipment of 6 NX transmitters complements the 27 NX transmitters which are already on air with DRM transmission throughout India. The massive project has the goal of bringing digital radio to nearly a billion residents of the country. The new transmitters will be installed at All India Radio (AIR) facilities in Hyderabad, Jagdalpur, Vishakhapatnam, Bhawanipatna, Jeypore and Sambalpur. All 33 transmitters in the AIR project are configured for DRM30 operation.
Nautel NX high power transmitters occupy a very small footprint and offer the industry's highest efficiency (90%) along with AM precorrection, unmatched linearity and Nautel's exclusive, award-winning Advanced User Interface which provides commercial grade instrumentation, spectrum analyzer, logging, presets, local and remote transmitter control, email notifications and enhanced support services.
"Nautel is excited to partner with Comcon and Prasar Bharati on this extensive project," said Kevin Rodgers, Nautel President and CEO. "With this system fully deployed in all parts of India, AIR is uniquely positioned to serve the different dialects and regional needs of its billion listeners. It's a shining example of the capabilities digital broadcasting can provide throughout the world."
