Company Premieres New Two Channel Receiver Ideal for
North American Broadcast Market
LAS VEGAS, APRIL 7th, 2018 – As designer and builder of the most sophisticated RF solutions for broadcast, film and live production, Wisycom will be showcasing the MPR52-ENG Dual Diversity Receiver at this year’s NAB Show (Booth C856).
The new MPR52 has two built-in diversity receivers with both analogue and digital outputs. With up to 790 MHz bandwidth in the 470/1260 MHz range, the MPR52 features next generation multiband front-end filtering. The software selectable wideband and narrowband DSP-FM operation gives users options based on their project needs. Country specific Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) filters are also available (USA: 940-960 MHz and Japan: 1240-1260 MHz).
“Wisycom’s MPR52 is unprecedented in this category of portable ENG receivers,” says Jim Dugan, president, Wisycom USA. “Its ultra-wideband width, with the ability to cover all UHF 470-960 MHz is a truly standout feature. The receiver can operate outside the 600 MHz band, which is vital to the industry given the current restrictions. Also, it is 50 percent more efficient than existing FM and native RF systems, enabling it to operate more channels with less spectrum. We look forward to presenting this latest RF innovation for the first time to NAB attendees and American broadcast industry leaders.”
The MPR52 features an extreme low noise Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) with ultrafast spectrum scanning for optimal quick and easy setup. The automatic scan and transmitter programming works via infrared technology. This receiver is DSP-based for extreme flexibility and multi-companding operations. It is able to be monitored and controlled through USB and Wisycom Manager 2.0 software, which transforms the MPR52 into a quick and low noise portable spectrum scanner.
Matching the MPR30-ENG receiver offered by Wisycom, the MPR52 features a dual diversity configuration with two whip antennas. The receiver also offers convenient function buttons, including a dedicated frequency scan option. Battery management is flexible as it features standard battery packs that can be charged with the dedicated charger or through the micro-usb-B connector.
