Austrian Bundesliga and Austrian cup winners 2011/2012 use TX5 to share their success!
REDBULL Salzburg, the Austrian double winning football side for the 2011/2012 season are utilising the power of a BW Broadcast TX5 to broadcast live commentary, post and pre match analysis and fan discussions on 87.5FM. Also in the chain is a BW Broadcast RDS2+ encoder.
Bought by the Red Bull Company in 2005, the club previously known as SV Austria Salzburg with a history dating back to 1933 has a decorated history in Austrian football. With a 31,000 capacity stadium, ‘Die Bullen’ (The Bulls – a nickname since 2005) have won the top prize seven times since 1993.
For their commentary team, they needed an easy to use and reliable low power transmitter that is efficient and robust. Michael Kastelic whose company Datamatix is the official BW Broadcast dealer in Austria and also well versed in providing equipment for sport, recommended the TX5 from BW Broadcast.
The lightweight TX5 is ideally suited for micro power radio stations, cable TV FM modulators, real estate advertising, drive in movie theatres, lab testing and much more thanks to its integrated single box design encompassing the amplifier, exciter and now multi band audio processing as well as digital and analogue in/outputs. Put simply, this is the best 5 watt transmitter available on the plant and at a price you will love.
All BW Broadcast FM transmitters are loaded with features, such as a configurable compressor/limiter and front-panel LCD control interface. Underlying architecture includes a unique dual-loop Virtual VFO exciter, ultra-low distortion modulator and high performance stereo encoder integrated into a great performing, highly stable FM transmission system. Developed for global use, the TX5 is frequency agile and complies with all applicable CE, FCC and EU regulations.
The Virtual VFO dual loop PLL system allows perfect audio flatness to below 10 Hz. AFC bounce and modulator overshoot are things of the past. Low bass can be achieved without distortion and overshoots, yet with greater stereo separation.
The TX5′s limiter and stereo encoder can be switched in and out of circuit. The TX5 can be adjusted anywhere from 100 mW to 5 watts. The rear panel contains XLR balanced inputs with input level controls, BNC for multiplex output from the internal digital stereo generator, BNC for multiplex input to the exciter for loop through operation and external processor input. RF output is via an N-Type socket.
Contact your local dealer now and see for yourself how good the TX5 really is, after all, the champions wouldn’t stand for anything less than the best.
