CTE DB air and liquid cooled high power transmitter range is available in different versions with different output powers from 1500 to 12000 Wrms and from 2500 to 22500 W p.s. when operating in analogue standards.

CTE DB high power transmitters are composed of some main subparts:


· An exciter (dual driver as an option), with native adaptive pre-correction circuits, bringing multiple input interfaces (ASI, IP, Satellite) and on-board GPS/ GLONASS receiver for accurate synchronization in SFN environments;


· Several amplifier stages (from 2 to 8 depending on the model and the output power level);


· A control and monitoring unit, with embedded change over system;


· An innovative and highly efficient Liquid cooling system (L series).


. transmitters support several digital modulation standards (DVB-T/H/T2, ISDB-T/Tb, DAB/DAB+/T-DMB, ATSC), as well as dual-cast analog operation (supporting PAL and NTSC).


CTE DB high power range obviously incorporates the innovative and distinctive engineering that has made the success of the low/medium power range of CTE DB transmitters, allowing unparalleled ease of use and maintenance.
