At this year’s International Broadcasting Convention (IBC 2019) in Amsterdam (September 13 to 17) IZT is presenting solutions for digital radio systems as well as high-performance test and measurement products. Show highlights are new features for IT-based digital radio head-ends, a RF signal source with enhanced support for broadcast standards and equipment for virtual field tests.
With the signal generator platform IZT S1000/S1010, the company is exhibiting a flexible RF test source supporting modulation for various communication and broadcast standards. The signal generators are applicable as a signal source in a laboratory.
This also includes the usage of the devices as part of the IZT Record and Playback system.
IZT will also demonstrate various RF receivers which record a real-time bandwidth of 120MHz with its new top of the line IZT R5010. The ability of recording RF signals during test drives and reproducing them in the laboratory can significantly reduce time-to market and cost when developing radio receivers.
The product portfolio is completed by the IZT T1000B Broadcast Modulator, a compact, price-efficient modulator platform for the broadcast standards DAB and DVB-T/DVB-T2 and up to date radio direction finding technology.
The IZT R5010 Wide-band Receiver has an instantaneous bandwidth up to 120MHz and a frequency range up to 6GHz.
With IZT’s RF Receiver IZTR3000/IZT R4000, the IZT S1000/IZT S1010 signal generator can be used as a Record and Playback System.
This enables the developers to perform virtual field tests, for example to build a data base of RF recordings and to reproduce field conditions in the laboratory. At the one side this ensures reproducible testing conditions.
At the other side, development time and costs can significantly be optimised as the number of actually required test drives is reduced.
The IZT SignalSuite software enables, among other features, visualisation and editing of DAB and FM Signals simultaneous.
