ADVERTORIAL: Dielectric has devoted much of Q1 preparing for a busy NAB Show, April 15-19, which includes rolling out new product developments for 2023. Several of these new products, including its Apollo RF analytics software and manifold combiners, address emerging requirements for both TV and radio broadcasters in the same solution. A third new product built for both FM and UHF TV customers reimagines the RF filter topology as an analysis and troubleshooting point for TV and FM radio engineers, allowing broadcasters to proof feeds within the filter as they exit the transmitter and approach the RF load or the antenna. Designed primarily for low-power broadcasters, Dielectric’s Advanced Filter Topology innovation eliminates the traditional RF switch and other interconnections between the filter and transmitter. The novel “switchless switch” approach creates a single unit that is easy to install, easy to manage, and easy on budgets. Read more here.
