The third Canadian installation of Cable AML’s new ITX-100 high-power transmitter was completed in March by Cable AML distributor Capella Telecommunications.
The ITX-100 transmitter is part of a microwave distribution network which also utilizes a very high power ITX-500 transmitter and an IAR-011 repeater. Cable AML’s ORX-201 phase-lock, low-noise receivers are used for large distribution areas, and refurbished receivers are used to serve areas with as few as 100 subscribers.
The ITX-100 is ideal for digital (or analog plus digital) transmission due to its unique architecture that offers fail-soft performance in the event of the failure of a power amplifier or its power supply. The fail-soft architecture avoids the disruption to the digital signals that may occur when transmitters are switched into redundancy
A total of 13 headends were replaced by this Cable AML system. The AML network now delivering 60 analog television channels was designed with a 78 channel capability to accommodate a projected growth in the near feature.
