RF Central Unveils microLite HD Compact COFDM Transmitter
RF Central, a Vitec Group brand, is unveiling its microLite HD compact transmitter at NAB (Booth C6419). The miniature COFDM digital transmitter is designed for the next generation of compact cameras featuring full HD-SDI capabilities and used primarily in news and field production.
“We are excited to introduce our newest COFDM transmitter,” says Integrated Microwave Technologies President Stephen Shpock. “We created the microLite HD transmitter to meet the demands of our customers as they transition from full-size ENG cameras to a new generation of lighter-weight, compact, but fully HD-capable cameras.”
The ultra-compact unit features MPEG-4 encoding/decoding in HD/SD with extremely low power consumption. Packaged in a size that will easily mount on the new generation of cameras, microLite HD is suited for such applications as news crews, point-of-view camera applications, sports and entertainment production, and reality-television production.
microLite HD occupies less than 6 cu. in. and can be operated in either 20 mW- or 200-mW output power modes. microLite HD features superb H.264 HD and SD encoding. It supports video/audio and data transmission with selectable modulation bandwidths of 6, 7, and 8 MHz, requires little setup, and is designed to be user-friendly.
