Real-world RF in television and radio
The transition to digital broadcasting carries a raft of ongoing challenges and new objectives for broadcasters and transmission site owners. From an RF perspective, the foremost of these is how to make the most of existing broadcast system assets--and how to choose wisely when upgrading.

An increasingly important criterion is that broadcast systems be future-proof and flexible. It will be essential that new digital channels cause minimal disruption to existing services; moreover, it’s almost guaranteed they will include technologies not yet conceived, particularly as consumers embrace communications mobility.

Broadcasters need RF systems that cater to these exact requirements: customized systems with extra capacity built-in, that minimize operating costs and which will last for 30 years. They need a complete RF system, engineered by experts, for premium performance and peace of mind.

At Radio Frequency Systems you’ll find a team of experienced engineers, dedicated to total broadcast RF system design--from the output of the transmitter to the antenna. Every system is customized, based on specific coverage requirements, existing infrastructure and required future capacity--there’s no such thing as a ‘standard solution’ from RFS.

Specializing in broadband multi-channel broadcast systems, RFS designs and manufactures world-leading channel combining and filtering technology, flexible air-dielectric transmission line, RF switch frames, and a range of antenna options, including tailored panel arrays.
