Partner
In broadcast, GatesAir offers the industry’s broadest portfolio to
wirelessly deliver and monetize content. The company’s exclusive focus
on the over-the-air market helps broadcasters optimize services today,
and prepare for future revenue-generating business opportunities. This
includes the industry’s most energy- efficient TV and radio transmitters,
supporting all digital and analog standards with low total cost of
ownership; and highly flexible radio consoles and studio networking
solutions for on-air and production needs.
GatesAir’s turnkey broadcast solutions are built on three pillars:
Create, Transport and Transmit. GatesAir’s globally renowned Intraplex
range comprises the Transport pillar, enabling audio contribution and
distribution (along with data) over IP and TDM networks. Intraplex
solutions provide value for broadcasters for point-to-point (STL, remote
broadcast) and multipoint (single-frequency networks, syndicated
distribution) connectivity. Recent innovations give broadcasters rocksolid, bandwidth-rich solutions for moving content over IP networks, with
visibility into stream and network performance. GatesAir continues to
innovate robust and reliable solutions for traditional RF STL connections
that can also accommodate IP traffic. In larger transmitter networks,
Simulcasting technology ensures all GatesAir transmitters are time-locked
for synchronous, over-the-air content delivery.
In public safety, Intraplex IP and TDM solutions are among the
most widely deployed worldwide for intelligible voice and data
communications. Intraplex public safety solutions assure highly secure
and available networks, with maximum redundancy to assure missioncritical information is delivered for emergency communication purposes.
Simulcasting capability extends these communications to multiple
receive stations, supporting single or multiple municipalities.
