RF Central RFX-PMR-II portable digital receiver debuts at NAB 2008
RF Central is introducing its new RFX-PMR-II portable
digital receiver at NAB 2008 (Booth #C6622). The receiver is available in
both SD and full HD configuration. The rugged unit offers exceptional
performance for portable links and is designed for easy and quick set-up for
ENG and field applications. In addition, it is weather resistant for broadcasts
during adverse climate conditions.
Accommodating FCC channel plans in conjunction with the BAS
Relocation Project, the PMR-II features manual or pre-set channels with tuning
in 0.25MHz steps. The unit is capable of receiving frequencies between 1.990
and 2.500GHz. When configured for HD, the PMR-II supports 1080i and 720p
formats in addition to SD modes. Demodulation modes include QPSK, 16 QAM and 64
QAM with auto detection.
“Today’s broadcast industry calls for products that offer
rugged durability and extreme portability, both of which are featured within
the PMR-II,” says RF Central CEO Jeff Winemiller.
In addition, Winemiller says the PMR-II is available at a
very critical time. “With many stations still in the midst of completing BAS
relocation, the PMR-II is a receiver that meets today’s SD criteria, while also
providing a clear path for migration to full HD whenever the customer is ready.”
The PMR-II’s MSRP is $29,650 and is upgradeable to HD for an
additional charge of $6,000.
