GatesAir has received a new TV-transmission order from Doordarshan to strengthen analog UHF television coverage in the Jammu region. GatesAir, Doordarshan’s exclusive TV-transmission supplier since 2012, will deliver six digital-ready Maxiva ULX liquid-cooled transmitters by the end of 2019. The transmitters integrate the company’s APEX M2X multi-standard Exciter, allowing Doordarshan to convert the transmitters to DVB-T2 or DVB-T2-Lite at any time. The company has delivered more than 30 digital-ready Maxiva TV transmitters to Doordarshan over the past 7 years. The six new 10 kW transmitters will be deployed in redundant 1+1 configurations at three sites in Jammu, Srinagar, and Leh, and will especially improve coverage along India’s northwest border.
President and Managing Director, International,
“GatesAir is proud to continue its long-term relationship with Doordarshan, and is uniquely prepared to offer guidance, service and support through its continued DTV transitions while reliably supporting its analog TV initiatives today. Furthermore, our high-efficiency Maxiva systems will provide Doordarshan with the lowest total cost of ownership over their lifecycle by reducing power consumption, simplifying maintenance, and optimizing performance and reliability for analog and digital broadcasts over many years.”
