The Netherlands, Amsterdam, July 15, 2008 – RF Central, a leading provider of digital microwave technology, is rolling out its new RFX-PRX-II portable handheld COFDM monitor/receiver at IBC (Stand 1.A30). Ideal for a wide range of applications including ENG confidence monitoring and security surveillance, this lightweight palm-sized receiver (available in 2 GHz and 5.8 GHz) is packaged in a compact housing that spans just 6.3 x 4.7 x 1.5 inches. To ensure durability, the system is fully ruggedized using an ABS plastic shell. “RF Central has taken its signature RFX-PRX to new heights by streamlining its system into a smaller and more compact design,� says RF Central CEO Jeff Winemiller. “With the new RFX-PRX-II, ENG crews, TV production directors and police agencies are provided with the ability to receive microwave signals for technical, confidence or security monitoring applications that call for discreet equipment.� Delivering extreme sensitivity, the PRX-II is equipped with a 5.6 inch high-resolution screen and offers record and playback capabilities via a user replaceable flash memory card. While currently available in 2 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequency bands, other frequency bands can be furnished upon request. Additionally, the PRX-II is CE approved and RoHS compliant. The unit receives COFDM DVB-T modulation in modes QPSK, 16QAM and 64 QAM.
