Maine Public Broadcasting has upgraded its RF plants network-wide to GatesAir Maxiva M2X exciters, GatesAir said today.
Installed in all five of its GatesAir transmitters, the Maxiva M2X optimizes the ATSC digital TV signal across all Maine Public Broadcasting VHF and UHF systems while assuring regulatory compliance, the company said.
“The Maxiva M2X significantly optimizes the transmission envelope, and also improves the auto-correction capabilities of our GatesAir transmitters,” said Maine Public Broadcasting VP and CTO Gil Maxwell, in a GatesAir press release.
The GatesAir RTAC software is integrated into the Maxiva M2X. It provides real-time adaptive correction that improves signal quality and mask filtering to maintain FCC compliance.
The Maine Public Broadcasting network of stations includes WMEA in Biddeford; WCBB in Portland; WMEB in Bangor; WMED in Calais; and WMEM in Presque Isle. Each uses a GatesAir TV transmitter.
