GatesAir Wins in Bulgaria
Thu 21, 05 2020
May 19, 2020 — GatesAir, a global leader in wireless, over-the-air content delivery solutions for radio and TV broadcasters, announces a strategic radio transmission win in Bulgaria in cooperation with channel partner NEW-TEK.
• NURTS, Bulgaria’s largest broadcast operator, will continue its FM modernization initiative with the upgrade of 11 transmission sites. NEW-TEK will install Flexiva FAX air-cooled FM radio transmitters (5kW and 10kW models) in redundant 1+1 or 2+1 configurations depending on the technical requirements of each site. The solid-state Flexiva transmitters will deliver two national channels for Bulgarian National Radio, replacing tube transmitters in operation for more than 30 years.
• GatesAir won the contract due to a mix of value, reliability and ease of operation, as well as a long-term business relationship between NEW-TEK and NURTS dating to 2003. Technical evaluations from both organizations confirmed that Flexiva will improve operational efficiency, reduce maintenance costs, and simplify remote control and monitoring through IP connectivity. The company anticipates an accelerated ROI thanks to drastically reduced operating expenses over the next 10-15 years.
• NEW-TEK has already completed several site installations since the rollouts began in 2018, with installations continuing through 2020. All Flexiva transmitters in the network will share the same hot-swappable power supplies and amplifier modules, minimizing time spent on labor and repairs while maximizing operational efficiency. NEW-TEK anticipates opportunities to modernize additional transmitter sites in 2021.
