Rohde & Schwarz claims world first with Camlica Tower transmitter consolidation

Turkey:

German broadcast manufacturer Rohde & Schwarz, has announced a world’s first that sees the transmission of 100 FM radio channels consolidated within the new landmark Camlica Tower in Istanbul. The project owners, broadcast transmission service provider Kule Verici Tesisleri Isletim Ve Teknolojileri AS, selected Rohde & Schwarz as its technology partners after many other companies claimed the transmission challenge was impossible to achieve. The project saw 100 R&S THR9 high power FM radio transmitters installed within the iconic tower, a feat that also serves to enhance the landscape’s aesthetic appeal since they replace more than 30 legacy street-level transmitter towers.

“We selected the R&S THR9 transmitters for this project because of their operational reliability and efficiency. Energy costs are substantially reduced because of the 75% efficiency that these transmitters achieve, and importantly, this leads to reduced carbon emissions into the environment,” explained the management of client PTT KULE Inc. “Rohde & Schwarz’s design team has saved space thanks to THR9’s small footprint, and day-to-day operation is simplified because of the modular configuration and flexible operation concept. The system is almost maintenance free thanks to its liquid cooling system, while better frequency occupation and clean spectral density allows us to cover the entire city with lower output power.”

Transmitting all 100 radio channels in the same infrastructure enables Kule Verici Tesisleri Isletim Ve Teknolojileri AS to provide consistent high quality broadcast services as standard to all its customers. The manufacturer will provide on-going post sales technical and operational support to the project, helping to ensure that the high professional standards are maintained throughout the operational life of the tower.

“At Camlica Tower, we have created a very clean high-power FM transmission system,” commented Taner Demir, managing director of Rohde & Schwarz Turkey. “Clean for the environment through industry leading power efficiency leading to unprecedented low carbon emissions. Clean frequency spectrum thanks to high quality signal modulation and transmission. And a clean city panorama since we have removed more than 30 transmitter towers from the skyline and integrated it into one stunning new landmark.”
