Built inside a weather resistant portable case, the HD upgradeable portable high-power digital transmitter is offered with 5 watt power output standard, but is also available at other output levels (including 7 watt) upon request. While the PHT-II is perfect for ENG mobile use in the field, it is also perfect for use in a standalone mode for temporary transmit applications. Among its accessible formats are 480i, 720p and 1080i. In addition, the unit can be configured to accept either composite or component analog video, HD/SDI digital signals and also has an ASI input. In addition, its capabilities include analog, digital AES and fully embedded audio.

“Today’s broadcast world is fast-paced and on the go,? says RF Central CEO Jeff Winemiller. “With the RFX-PHT-II, broadcasters receive our high-power digital transmitter technology but in a neat compact design that lends itself well to mobile use.?

With frequency selection ranging up to 16 pre-set channels that tune in 0.25 MHz increments via the CMT-II control panel, the PHT-II offers multiple modes of COFDM modulation including QPSK, 16QAM and 64QAM. Options for the PHT-II are a Car Mounting Kit and Antenna. RF Central warranties the PHT-II for three years.
