New Zealand to go DTV with RFS

In support of New Zealand’s targeted 2008 digital TV launch, broadcast solutions group, Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), will provide passive RF equipment to be deployed at 18 key sites nationwide. The RFS broadcast systems will be key elements of a complete multi-channel DTV solution provided by leading RF solutions provider, Kordia. The combined terrestrial broadcast systems will provide DTV coverage to approximately 75 percent of the New Zealand population. According to RFS Business Manager Broadcast, Martin O’Donohue, RFS is working in conjunction with Kordia to tailor several fully engineered broadcast RF systems to suit New Zealand’s varied broadcast environment. “In addition to supplying all passive RF equipment, RFS is providing engineering support, to ensure broadcast coverage is sculpted to the local environment at each geographically unique broadcast site,” he said. “The complete UHF antenna solution from RFS will facilitate a swift transition from analogue to digital TV, and provide flexibility for future expansion.” The new digital video broadcasting - terrestrial (DVB-T) systems will employ a range of the latest RFS technologies. Equipment to be deployed throughout the network includes broadband panel arrays, multi-channel balanced combiners, switch-frames and a range of RFS bandpass filters. The dual input antennas will be connected to the transmitter using RFS HELIFLEX air-dielectric coaxial transmission line.
