The portable microwave system XPM is the latest product developed by Elber R&D group. It's a digital link working either in COFDM technique (standard DVB-T) or single carrier wideband (standard DVB-S2), selectable by software.
It is a split-type (2 boxes) system composed of a RF head,
waterproof IP65 (transmitter or receiver) and a Cleber, a rack mount
lightweight control unit which can
host up to six different boards plug-in, such as encoders,
decoders, modulators or “plug-in boards” with standards
DVB-S, DVB-S2, DVB-T.
Encoders and decoders can be programmed for both MPEG-2 and H.264 compression, High and Standard Definition,
4:2:0 and 4:2:2 for high quality audio/video contribution. Its 150ms end-to-end latency makes the system the BEST FOR NEWSGATHERING AND SPORT EVENTS. The RF box is installed on a tripod, for simplex transmission, and a base plate for two boxes with orthomode transducer is available for double simplex and full duplex configurations.
Moreover, the transmitter can be equipped with an external power amplifier box to get higher distances. Connection between control units and RF heads is performed through a RG-216 cable with LEMO connectors, with distance of up through 200 metres.
