At its NAB Show booth, GatesAir is presenting a technology demonstration showing how a single channel can be used to transmit DVB-T2 and LTE content by leveraging time division multiplexing and a technical aspect of DVB-T2 that instructs TVs to ignore the LTE signal and the LTE device to ignore the television signal.
Harris Broadcast, a portfolio company of The Gores Group, announced today it would split into two companies,Imagine Communications and GatesAir. Imagine Communications will focus on video and multimedia software and processing products for media, broadcast, MSO and government and enterprise customers. GatesAir will target over-the-air broadcast technology and return to the Gates name, one of the premiere brands in the history of broadcasting.
The CEO of Imagine Communications (formerly Harris Broadcast) says the company will “out-innovate” its chief rival, Belden’s Grass Valley. Charlie Vogt says Imagine “is moving into a very dynamic software environment and I’m not sure that that is in the DNA” of Belden. He also says Imagine will be “bold and agressive” in acquiring smaller companies that round out its product line.
