The Maxiva VAXTE is a compact air-cooled TV & DAB transmitter that provides over the air delivery in the VHF spectrum. Built on GatesAir’s groundbreaking PowerSmart Plus architecture, the Maxiva VAXTE provides an energy-efficient, broadband solution to reliably deliver rich, high-quality multiformat content to viewers at home or on the move.

Optimized for International Markets
The Maxiva VAXTE utilizes the latest generation 50 volt LDMOS amplifier devices, new compact high-efficiency power supplies and the Maxiva Compact series exciter/driver along with real-time adaptive correction (RTAC) for outstanding signal performance. The Maxiva VAXTE power amplifiers have been optimized to provide the best possible performance and efficiency for all modulations. For example, the VAXTE transmitter is rated for identical average power levels for 8-VSB and OFDM TV modulations, assuring a simple and cost-effective upgrade path for future ATSC 3.0 operation. The modular design further simplifies installation and reduces maintenance costs, dramatically lowering the total cost of ownership over the transmitters life-cycle.
