RFS to Exhibit Broadcast Infrastructure Solutions at IBC 2015


Radio Frequency Systems (RFS) is a global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist. RFS designs and manufactures a range of antennas including tailored panel arrays, combiners and filters, RF switch frames and flexible air-dielectric transmission lines.

With a worldwide customer base and 80 years of experience in the broadcast industry, RFS’ engineers are dedicated to total broadcast RF system design – from the output of the transmitter to the antenna.At IBC 2015, RFS will display a suite of products that are frequency agile, polarization agile and future proof, including:

New Band IV/V (UHF) PeakPower+TM bandpass filter, designed for global filtering applications associated with DTV television transmission. The new product is a 6-pole filter incorporating two cross couplings to meet all mask filtering requirements. It is very compact for easy integration into equipment and features very low insertion loss for its size. The filter is tunable over full UHF band (470-862 MHz), and has adjustable bandwidth available for 6, 7 and 8 MHz channels for global applications.

STA4-LMP Band IV/V (UHF) Superturnstile Array. The new ultra-slim and lightweight superturnstile UHF broadcast antenna supports the entire US and European UHF bands (470 to 862 MHz). This antenna exhibits superior pattern circularity and offers significant reduction in wind loading and weight, giving broadcasters enormous flexibility for installation on existing loaded towers. It is ideal for many medium power broadcast applications.

Rigid Line and HELIFLEX® transmission lines. Rigid Line cables offer low attenuation and high power rating to ensure superior performance of transmission systems and networks; they are made from high conductivity copper and aluminum, prefinished to order. HELIFLEX® air-dielectric flexible transmission lines feature a continuous RFI/EMI shield to minimize system interference. Due to low attenuation, outstanding heat transfer properties and temperature-stabilized dielectric materials, HELIFLEX® cable provides safe, long-term operating life at high transmit power levels.

RFS 6-port Switch Frames join antennas, combiners and transmitters for integrated systems. They are cost-effective, and offered for radio and television services in all bands. Elegant lines of RFS switch frames hide complicated wiring, and sleek RFS front panels feature U-links in compact arrangement.

September 11-15, 2015
Hall 8, Booth #A41, IBC 2015, RAI Amsterdam.
