Denver, CO (March 12, 2013)-Harris Broadcast announced it will bring new product enhancements and its first MaxxCasting demonstration for large audiences to the 2013 NAB Show.
MaxxCasting was introduced last month as a joint solution with Geo-Broadcast Solutions to maximize audience reach, allowing broadcasters to fully utilize their FCC spectrum allotments. The MaxxCasting architecture employs corresponding transmission and control technologies to increase signal coverage via single-frequency networks, which it says are more effective than traditional booster technologies.
Harris Broadcast will demonstrate a MaxxCasting solution featuring Flexiva low-power transmitters, Intraplex SynchroCast3 IP-based simulcast systems and Geo-Broadcast Solutions' network design architecture (including GPS and booster technologies), all outfitted in a Harris Broadcast outdoor enclosure.
Harris Broadcast will also show its Flexiva low-power transmitters in North America for the first time (50, 150, 300 and 500 watts), and introduce a new transmitter option for integrated Orban audio processing. The optional plug-in cards are available for the entire Flexiva transmitter range, extending from 50 W to 40 kW.
The company will also showcase complete networked studio architectures for distributed audio systems covering multiple studios. The full demonstration will include various PR&E consoles, networking systems and accessories to manage studio workflows. The demonstration will extend to the company's Intraplex range of IP codecs, including the NAB debut of the IP Link 200.
