The Maxiva ULXTE is a liquid-cooled TV transmitter that powers over-the-air delivery across the UHF television spectrum. Built on GatesAir’s groundbreaking PowerSmart® Plus architecture, Maxiva ULXTE offers today’s digital broadcaster the most compact, energy-efficient solutions to reliably deliver rich, high-quality multi-format content to viewers at home, or on the move.
Optimized for International Markets The Maxiva ULXTE transmitter utilizes the latest 50-Volt LDMOS amplifier devices, new compact high-efficiency power supplies and the new Maxiva XTE exciter with advanced real-time adaptive correction (RTAC) for outstanding signal performance.
The Maxiva ULXTE power amplifiers have been optimized to provide the best possible performance and efficiency for both ATSC 1.0 and ATSC 3.0. The ULXTE transmitter is rated for identical average power levels for both modulations, assuring a simple and cost-effective upgrade path for future ATSC 3.0 operation.
Modular designs simplify installation and reduce ongoing maintenance, dramatically lowering total cost of ownership over the life of the transmitter.
