Canal 13 SINART Costa Rica Medios advances with its commitment of broadcasting TDA.
BTESA, with more than 30 years experience in the Broadcasting market, continues consolidating its position as a benchmark company in the design and implementation of broadcasting turnkey projects.
BTESA TV transmitters provide a new step in the evolution of high-efficiency by using Doherty air-cooled amplifiers, and include integrated solutions for RF Power Combination and Automatic Switching between exciters. They also offer the best-in-class redundancy, since each amplifier module includes 6 fans in active redundancy and a fully redundant second power supply, truly hot-plug, with the most robust surge protections.
In the words of Mario Vado, SINART’s Broadcasting Coordinator and project manager, “Thanks to the professionalism and hard work of BTESA staff, we successfully implemented 4 transmission sites in a record time, even suffering from adverse weather conditions and pandemic logistic restrictions. With these new sites, we expect to cover more than 80% of the country”
