At NAB2006, Harris has introduced Cool Play 1670, a new television transmitter platform designed for 1670MHz Digital Video Broadcasting Handheld (DVB-H) applications, including the Modeo mobile TV service planned for the United States.
The Cool Play 1670 is the first Harris mobile TV platform developed for harsh operating environments. Capable to operating at temperatures from -40 degrees to 113 degrees, it is equipped for outdoor installation without specialized cooling equipment. Specialized printed circuit board coatings and air-handling systems ensure that the electronics within Cool Play 1670 transmitters receive sufficient ventilation and cooling without corrosive effects from humidity or impurities in the air.
All the elements required for a local DVB-H transmitter, including satellite receiver, TV exciter, amplification, wireless or wired Ethernet modems and uninterruptible power supplies are contained within the climate-controlled Cool Play 1670 cabinet.
The Cool Play 1670 transmitter is designed for easy deployment on rooftops and other difficult environments, and offers various redundancy options to ensure that the mobile TV service operates continuously.
