RFS urges smart RF choices at BroadcastAsia 2007

In today’s dynamic and converging broadcast environment, it is more important than ever to consult with RF system experts during the primary stages of network design, says Radio Frequency Systems. The company will be on-hand at June’s BroadcastAsia exhibition to discuss how the right network infrastructure choices now can streamline introduction of future services, such as mobile TV and multimedia services. “Many Asian countries who haven’t yet deployed DTV are now looking at how they can deploy a network to support both digital fixed and mobile TV simultaneously,” said Mick Bennett, RFS’s recently appointed Global Product Manager, Broadcast & Defense Systems. “This is certainly the most cost-effective option from an infrastructure point-of-view, but it needs careful planning. For example, the coverage requirements for fixed and mobile reception differ, and this may impact choice of infrastructure.” At BroadcastAsia, RFS broadcast engineers will be on-hand at the RFS hospitality booth to explore all the options for RF network deployment. This includes infrastructure for alternative mobile TV network models--such as how mobile carriers can make use of their core assets to deploy mobile TV at existing base stations. According to Bennett, however, mobile TV is just one network deployment driver in Asia, where many countries are still trialing digital terrestrial broadcast technologies, and others are expanding analog networks. “In the case of analog deployments, RFS can design systems that will accommodate future digital services,” he said. “It may be something as straightforward as providing half-antenna redundancy that can be used for new digital services later on.” Having worked with broadcasters and infrastructure developers across every country in the Asia Pacific region, RFS has a unique perspective on regional network requirements--both analog and digital. The most important thing, Bennett emphasized, is to start talking to RFS early in the planning phase.
