GatesAir To Exhibit At BroadcastAsia


USA: GatesAir will bring its extensive product portfolio for emerging low-power and digital broadcasting opportunities to BroadcastAsia 2019. 
In addition to its existing range of Maxiva and Flexiva transmitters, the company will also highlight new TV and DAB Radio transmitters procured through its acquisition of ONEtastic. New innovations include the debut of a weatherised pole-mounted TV transmitter built to deliver high-performance, low-power and gap-filler solutions in challenging outdoor environments. 
BroadcastAsia 2019 also marks the regional debut of the new Maxiva TV (10W to 2kW) and Flexiva FM radio transmitters (7.5kW) introduced earlier this year at NAB 2019. GatesAir will demonstrate a range of its high-efficiency UHF, VHF, DAB and FM transmitters across all power levels, with an emphasis on guiding broadcasters through complex digital transitions and refreshing analog infrastructure. The company’s software-defined Maxiva XTE exciter will be at the centre of all digital TV demonstrations, offering broadcasters a path to any digital standard while optimising performance and stability.
GatesAir will round out its presence at the show with its latest Intraplex audio contribution and distribution solutions, including its new IT-based Ascent Audio over IP platform. Receiving its regional debut, Intraplex Ascent represents the latest in broadcast and IT convergence, and is GatesAir’s first Intraplex system to live on a COTS x86 server. Ascent provides broadcasters with a highly scalable, redundant and cloud-based transport platform for multichannel contribution and distribution. Designed for centralised control and maximum interconnectivity, Ascent is compliant with the AES67 standard, today’s leading AoIP networking solutions, and most Intraplex Audio over IP codecs.
GatesAir’s problem-solving approach will be a common theme across all exhibits and demonstrations, with a focus on helping customers reduce operational costs, add new services, and transition to more efficient platforms. Chief among these include embracing the flexible capabilities of single-frequency networking (SFN) for TV and radio broadcasting, and leveraging IP as a primary transport method for audio and data.
“GatesAir has spent the last six months aggressively growing its global presence, both through international team expansion and the strategic acquisition of ONEtastic,” said Rich Redmond, President and Managing Director, International for GatesAir. “We are excited to bring our message of low total cost of ownership, innovative problem-solving, and strong service and support to BroadcastAsia as we prepare our customers for the next generation of over-the-air broadcast opportunities worldwide.”
GatesAir is exhibiting at Stand 4Q3-01 at BroadcastAsia 2019.
