Come and visit us at IBC!
SPINNER will be exhibiting at the IBC broadcast show in the RAI International Exhibition & Congress Center in Amsterdam on September 14-18, 2018. Join us at Booth C29 in Hall 8!
Our highlights there will include the following:
Compact DAB Combiner for Container Solutions
Space constraints have always posed challenges in broadcast sites. And in digital audio broadcasting – DAB, with its relatively large filters and combiners, a smart design of the system plays an essential role. SPINNER is well-known for its compact customized solutions. And at this upcoming event we will present yet another example of our expertise: a compact DAB combiner module for up to 1.2 kW per channel, including a bypass pass patch panel with a footprint of only 0.14 sqm and a height of less than 1.5 m. It is ideal for container solutions of all sizes, also very small ones.
DAB Filters for 5 - 10 kW
DAB radio is becoming a reality in many countries. For installations requiring high power, SPINNER has developed a new DAB filter that comes in versions for 5 kW (with air cooling) and 10 kW (with liquid cooling). High-power DAB channel combiners are also available with input power levels of up to 20 kW and a choice of six or eight cavities.
SPINNER Antenna Monitoring System (AMS)
Our Antenna Monitoring System ensures early detection of arcing and water ingress. It continuously monitors an entire antenna system and alerts you both locally and remotely to any problems so they can be nipped in the bud before major damage occurs. It has an ingeniously simple design and is quick and easy to install, also in existing facilities.
Redesigned Direct Access Units
Our SPINNER Direct Access Units are already well-known in the market, having been installed at hundreds of sites to enable easy access for testing during phasing and maintenance work. Now we have redesigned them to be even more compact, lighter and easier to install.
SPINNER 50 kW SmartLoad
Our 50 kW load features a compact footprint of only 0.75 sqm and an optimized airflow. Like all SPINNER SmartLoad products, it has an intelligent controller that only switches the pump and fan on when these are actually needed, remaining in standby mode the rest of the time. All of this ensures greater energy efficiency with significant power savings compared to continuously running loads. An outdoor cooler can be optionally used to keep the room's temperature down and eliminate the costs of an A/C unit.
Rotary Joints for Broadcast Applications
SPINNER will present two rotary joints for broadcast application: An ultra-compact slip-ring/fiber-optic combination for cable suspended camera systems - enabling interference-free video data transmission in 4K and 8K quality, also of fast-moving images. In addition a slip-ring/fiber combination solution for revolving stages - enabling high data transfer needed for lighting, audio and visual effects.
We’re looking forward to seeing you at IBC!
