Omni mobile TV antenna packs in performance

The latest in the mobile TV antenna range from Radio Frequency Systems is the vertically polarized omnidirectional SDV4 antenna. To be launched at September’s IBC exhibition, the lightweight and low-profile SDV4 supports broadband UHF operation from 470MHz to beyond 750MHz, and is ideal for deploying at mobile base stations and towers to support mobile media/cellular overlays.

“The sheer number of mobile TV transmission or repeater sites required is leading prospective mobile TV network operators to consider lower price-point antennas,” said Mick Bennett, RFS Global Product Manager for Broadcast and Defense Systems. “With RFS’s omni SDV4 they can achieve this without needing to compromise on performance, which is excellent for its size and cost.

” According to Bennett, the SDV4’s true omnidirectional coverage pattern exhibits superior circularity to other similar antennas on the market. In addition, the antenna features excellent impedance and a voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) of less than 1.15 to 1. Its maximum average input power is 1kW. Measuring 2.25m (7.4 feet) tall and 320mm (12.6in) in diameter, the SDV4 exhibits remarkably low wind-load and, at just 45kg (99lb), is one of the lightest antennas in RFS’s broadcast portfolio.

 “RFS is committed to developing an extensive range of mobile TV antennas that supports the full range of performance and economic requirements of mobile TV network operators,” Bennett said. “The broadband omni SDV4 is a cost-effective low-power antenna for multi-channel networks, where high performance is still important.”
