Advertising revenues continue to show steady growth in Australian metro markets
This month, Dielectric returns to the NAB exhibit floor with an impressive business milestone under its belt. Celebrating 80 years in business, the over-the-air antenna and RF systems supplier will host customer-facing activities in its booth at its new West Hall location (W7017) while showcasing its latest TV and radio innovations. Dielectric will show a now-available ATSC 3.0 antenna line for the first time as well as updates to RFHAWKEYE, its IP-based RF monitoring system now gaining market traction with more than three dozen live installations.
Dielectric will also premiere several innovations for radio broadcasters in a public setting, including new High Frequency Simulation Software (HFSS) tools that virtualize and accelerate precise FM pattern study developments. In addition, Dielectric will showcase its recently announced FMP family of FM pylon antennas. Vice president of engineering John Schadler will refer to the antennas in a presentation Changing the Landscape of FM Broadcast Antenna on Tuesday, April 26 at 1.55 pm in Room 307-309 in the West Hall.
Dielectric will also offer a new interactive experience where there will be a feature wall including some of the top Dielectric sites in the world. Visitors can vote for their favorite and win prizes.
“For Dielectric, NAB marks an occasion where we can celebrate a return to the industry gatherings we have all missed over the past two years while recognizing our 80 years of broadcast heritage,” said Keith Pelletier, recently named president of Dielectric. “As we reflect on where our business started, three core values have carried us through: engineering strength, manufacturing innovation, and a customer-first philosophy. The current Dielectric team has also made a significant mark in the company’s history over the past several years, especially in terms of product innovation and business growth.”
Pelletier added that NextGenTV will be a substantial focus for Dielectric’s product innovation and business growth over the next few years. Dielectric has been involved in roughly 80 percent of NextGenTV lighthouse launches and has product in every trial and market launch to date.
