RF Central’s new camera-mounted transmitters offer HD upgradeability

RF Central, a digital microwave technology provider, is
unveiling its RFX-CMT-II camera-mounted transmitters in both 2 GHz and 5.8 GHz
at Booth C6622 at NAB 2008. While the 2 GHz unit is designed for live ENG news
and sports broadcast applications and the 5.8 GHz unit is geared for live
sports stadium, arena coverage and license free applications, both offer
complete HD upgradeability with the latest in high-quality, low-latency, HD
encoding technology.

Each featuring inputs of HD, SDI, ASI or Composite video
signals, these new products are perfect for live and real time image
transmissions. The units excel in live broadcasts, live stadium displays,
surveillance, monitoring and situational awareness. The compact units
offer a variable 6/7/8 MHz modulator, 100mw power output, and full MPEG menu
control by the customer. They are built for live transmissions requiring the
ultimate in quality and performance from a wireless camera transmitter. The 2
GHz and 5.8 GHz CMT-II’s linear RF amplification technology limits spectral
regrowth at full power to less than -35dBc, offering robust RF performance.
Other frequencies are available upon request.

“RF Central prides itself in providing commercial
off-the-shelf technology alternatives and sophisticated solutions for today’s
world of live broadcast and live image transmission of news and in both sports
coverage,” says RF Central CEO Jeff Winemiller. “The RFX-CMT-II in 2 GHz and
5.8 GHz units are representative of that mission.”

While the RFX-CMT-II 2 GHz and 5.8 GHz units are available
in Standard Definition, they are software upgradeable to full High Definition
(HD) via software key and will interface with all standard broadcast portable
power systems.
