Nautel announces two new websites

Nautel have recently redesigned their website to create a more straightforward way for you to navigate to the information you need.

There are two separate areas you can toggle between – one dedicated to support and technical documentation and the main site which has more of a product focus. Using the vertical floating buttons on the right – Products or Support – you can easily flip between the two areas.

Make sure you login to the NUG and take a look around. As it’s a new URL your browser won’t recognise your saved password. If you have forgotten it, you’ll have to click on ‘change/forgot password’ and reset your password. Don’t forget to clear your cache to make sure you’re running the latest web page.

If you run into problems or think something is missing from the new site, please let us know!

Congratulations to Nautel’s Jeff Welton on receiving the prestigious James C. Wulliman SBE Educator of the Year award for 2018. This award is in recognition of outstanding service and excellence in sharing knowledge through teaching other broadcast engineers.

Also in the winning circle is Davicom with the 2018 SBE Technology Award honour for the new Cortex 360 Site Management System. The Cortex 360 is based on the latest hardware processors running an embedded Linux operating system, which incorporates 30 years of experience and knowledge in the remote site management industry.

If you have any questions about this amazing product, please call us on (02) 9987 0499 or email us.

Sneak Peeks at IBC 2018… One week to go…

At this year’s IBC stand 8.C49 Nautel will show a range of its medium wave and FM transmitters, including products from the NX, GV and VS lines. You are also invited to join a DRM presentation and reception on Saturday 15th September from 3.30pm to 5.00pm.




Taking centre stage at the Orban booth 8.D93 will be their flagship Optimod FM 8700i featuring Xponential Loudness, built-in streaming server and “Multipath Mitigator” phase corrector. The processor also features Dante dual-redundant AoIP with AES67 support, a subharmonic synthesizer, as well as dual redundant power supplies and safety bypass relays to ensure 24/7 operation.

There’s also something new and exciting which won’t be announced until the show itself – the first Sonifex Dante® product which the entire design team has been working on over the northern Summer. Come along to the stand to see the coolest and latest in design excellence!

It’s all about DAB at the Inovonics booth 8.C98 this year.
