Meredith Local Media Group has ordered Parallax transmitters from Hitachi Kokusai Electric Comark to satisfy its obligations in the FCC’s TV spectrum repack, Comark announced this week.
The new transmitters will be delivered to Meredith stations KSMO Kansas City, Mo.; WHNS Greenville, S.C.; WNEM Saginaw, Mich.; WPCH Atlanta; WFSB Harford-New Haven, Conn.; and WGGB Springfield, Mass., the company said. Three will be delivered before the end of the year.
The transmitters range from 10 KW to 65 KW. Each will be delivered with Comark’s Exact-V2 exciter, which can be upgraded via software to ATSC 3.0 in the future. The liquid-cooled transmitters also will be shipped with RF mask filter systems.
More information is available on the company’s website.
