TV Spectrum Re-Pack Update

An update on the impending re-pack situation and how it may impact your transmission facility. A brief look at options for existing equipment, including upgrades versus replacement. Efficiency and Total Cost of Ownership of old versus new equipment will also be discussed.

Is your FM station one of the 35% that will be affected by the FCC spectrum repack?

Liquid Cooled FM Transmitters Enhance Total Cost of Ownership

Many broadcasters are pushing for continued Green initiatives for equipment and infrastructure. With the rise of the price of electricity, and various site conditions, GatesAir has made considerable R&D strides to develop a solution. As a case study the Freedom Tower/World Trade Center in NYC will require all transmitters in the building to be liquid cooled, and they will hook into the high efficiency air-conditioning system that was designed into the tower. GatesAir has been doing liquid-cooled TV transmitters for years, and this presentation will detail proven technology and system variables to consider.
