An Italian Story, 150 years long! The cover of our “The Best of Broadcast&Production Made in Italy 2011/2012” is reserved to Giuseppe Garibaldi Italian (pronunciation: [dʒuˈzɛppe ɡariˈbaldi]), because in 2011 we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Unification of the Italian State Giuseppe Garibaldi (July 4, 1807 – June 2, 1882) was an Italian military and political key figure. In his twenties, he joined the Carboneria, a clandestine group of Italian revolutionary patriots aiming at reunifying the Italian state, at that time split under a number of dominions (PiedmontSardinia, Papal State, Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, Austrian Empire and some minor Duchies and Principates). After an unsuccessful insurgence, Garibaldi fled Italy and participated to the War of the Ragamuffins and to the Uruguayan Civil War as the leader of a legion of Italian volunteers. Then he moved back to Italy, where he acted as a commander in the various battles of the Italian Risorgimento, the political and social movement that merged the different states of the Italian peninsula into the single state of Italy . He was called “the Hero of Both Worlds" as a tribute to his military successes in both Italy (thus Europe) and in South America. He is considered an Italian national hero. Garibaldi's popularity, his skill at rousing the common people, and his military exploits are all credited with making the unification of Italy possible. He also served as a global exemplar of mid-19th century revolutionary nationalism and liberalism. Garibaldi, along with Giuseppe Mazzini and other Europeans supported the creation of a European federation. Many Europeans expected a unified Germany to become a European and world leader and to champion humanitarian policies. This is noticeable in this part of the letter written by Giuseppe Garibaldi to Karl Blind on 10 April 1865. "The progress of humanity seems to have come to a halt, and you with your superior intelligence will know why. The reason is that the world lacks a nation which possesses true leadership. Such leadership, of course, is required not to dominate other peoples, but to lead them along the path of duty, to lead them toward the brotherhood of nations where all the barriers erected by egoism will be destroyed. We need the kind of leadership which, in the true tradition of medieval chivalry, would devote itself to redressing wrongs, supporting the weak, sacrificing momentary gains and material advantage for the much finer and more satisfying achievement of relieving

the suffering of our fellow men. We need a nation courageous enough to give us a lead in this direction. It would rally to its cause all those who are suffering wrong or who aspire to a better life, and all those who are now enduring foreign oppression".

BLT ITALIA

BLT Italia: over 50 years of experience in television technology BLT Italia was founded in 1959 by Leonardo Bartelletti to design and manufacture professional TV equipment, nowadays used by major broadcasters worldwide BLT is proud to have more than half a century of experience ranging from the electronic tube age to the present HDTV and stereoscopic 3D-HDTV days.

The new BLT Media Server SMS “U” series Family BLT has been designing and manufacturing video servers for the broadcast television industry for many years. The latest product developments allow BLT to offer solutions ranging from 2 channels up to 8 channels in a single unit, featuring simultaneous recording and playback. The material coming from any recording channel can be shared by all playback channels in real time. Each server can be connected with other units via a Gigabit Ethernet network to share live and recorded content as well as clips. The diagram shows a typical OB-van configuration: two server SMS-4U networked with one server SMS-2U and multiple RUS-Color and RUSColorPLUS Control Panels, via LAN connection, in a flexible and easy to set-up system. Each operator panel can be assigned to a server through a set-up menu, with no need to change the cables or hardware layout. In this diagram, the 8 input channels of the two SMS-4U can be used for the live replays, while the SMS-2U with a dedicated RUS-Color controller can be used either for the replays and contribution playout or to compose highlights. The SMS-2U clips are sourced 26 T H E

from the content recorded in the other servers. The contents exchanged between the servers are in native JP2K format and can be exported and reimported in MXF/MOV/AVI formats for third party NLE systems. With the RUS-ColorPlus, a BLT remote controller with an integrated graphic user interface, the above system can manage up to 300,000 clips. The video client control software includes a user friendly playlist creation system where each clip can be associated to the relevant metadata. When connected to an highspeed camera, the SMS-4U server can perform super-slow motion with HDTV at full native resolution, capturing up to three times more frames than conventional systems (150/180 frames/sec).

Ditadi was already a local radio enthusiast with a degree in electrical engineering, providing technical assistance and maintenance services to the first local broadcasters in the Venice region, north-eastern Italy. Ditadi and Bertella decided to launch a business together, offering solutions and equipment to meet the needs of the new radio stations. Ditadi provided the engineering knowhow and a healthy dose of youthful enthusiasm; Bertella, with 15 years of experience behind him, was able to provide financial discipline and a keen entrepreneurial eye.

As often happens in business success stories, Ditadi and Bertella’s adventure began in a garage, Bertella’s one. This was the cradle of the DB Group, and the site where the first lowpower FM transmitters were built. At that time, with the FM spectrum being still a largely unexplored territory, these units were likely adequate to get you on the air and tolet your station to be heard even at a remarkable distance. A sudden market success brought a surge in demand. Customers queued outside the garage to get home the equipments as soon as they came out from the production line. This story, told with some nostalgia, points out one of the key factor of the business model that today, on a very different scale, characterizes the DB

Ditadi and Feliziani

brand: good value for money is the key to success. It is a success that in 1976, just a year after Ditadi and Bertella joined their efforts, led to establish their company. They resigned from their previous jobs and officially set up the DB Elettronica Telecomunicazioni Snc partnership. The partnership became a joint-stock company in 1982, with the DB parent company remaining such ever since. Rossella Giuliato, who joined DB while very young and now is a source of company history, and Ilario Giacomini, who has worked on the technical side of the business since the dawn of the DB Group are still a key presence in the company..

Growing up In 1986, DB began evolving beyond the FM radio sector. DB invested significant resources in television R&D and hired a team of specialist engineers. Within a year, DB was able to publish its first catalogue of TV technology. By 1990, the range of DB solutions was complete. In 1993, DB recruited Guglielmo Feliziani, a justgraduated telecommunications engineer. He started as a designer and moved up to manage the technical department, also becoming a partner in the company in 1996. In 2000, with the retirement of Bertella, Feliziani had the opportunity to increase his stake to the same level as Ditadi’s. This was not a case of acquiring a “silent partner”, but a young, new partner fully invested in the company. The idea of Bertella and Ditadi, to take a forwardlooking decision for their company, was perfectly clear.

EBS “deluxe” arrives EBS Srl was set up by DB Elettronica in 2004, thus creating the DB Group 34 T H E

(later ETT Srl was added to the group, too). The move also involved acquiring some of the technical staff of the Abruzzibased company ABS, including Massimo Rossi, an EBS partner who is currently technical chief at EBS. Although EBS operates in the same markets as DB, it is positioned as a “luxury brand,” offering complex, customized solutions to a more demanding customer base. EBS clients include leading national public and private broadcasters from both Italy and abroad. The overview of the DB management team would not be complete without mentioning the gracious presence of Elena Ditadi, who has stood out at the DB stand at trade shows around the world since the 2000 NAB Show. On 4 July 2006, just ahead of her graduation in Communications Sciences, she officially joined the company. Her first task was marketing, with a special focus on Western Europe, francophone Africa and the Americas, as well as sales network coordination duties.

Present and future Today, DB Elettronica has hundreds of authorized dealers worldwide, featuring a global market coverage. Nearly 80% of the markets covered are structured with direct B2B relationships, and only a few are handled via second-level commercial relationships. This close contact and friendship with clients helps DB maintaining the original philosophy of the company early ages. On the commercial side of DB, three managers work alongside Elena Ditadi: Beatrice Martin, who covers the same areas as Elena; Luisa Finetti and Elena Imhoff, who together are in charge for the Asian and other Eastern markets. The entire staff is directly coordinated by Luciano Ditadi and Guglielmo Feliziani. Further boosting the commercial staff is Ilaria Cavinato; as head of after-sales assistance, she is a key figure for the company. MS. Cavinato takes care of various T H E

M-THREE SATCOM

M-Three Satcom highlights: the new Teleport in Rome, GbE network and the start-up of the new Tooway services The company managed by Michele Magnifichi, Carlo Morelli, Carmelo Mallia and Edoardo Bernardi is ready to introduce you to a load of innovations. On display: new projects and continuous improvement M-Three Satcom is in the business of broadcast services since 2004: in the same year the company Teleport in San Giuliano Milanese started its operations, and now a new facility in Rome is ready to be launched. The strategy pursued by the company, strengthened by this new project, is very sound, and is focused in two main directions: on the technical side, continuous investments and improvements on infrastructure, on the customer side, high level of attention to the customer and wide flexibility in providing tailored commercial and technical solutions. M-Three Satcom operates one of the digital platform for DTH satellite services on Hot Bird directly from Italy (a rare and valuable asset), and, in the past few years, has built a number of satellite transmissions services around this asset, which became the core of the system. The services provided by the company include turn-key solutions (on a regular or occasional basis) for satellite or radio-link transmissions and optical communications. All this, plus the synergies with fellow companies Telsat end Elber and , recently, Onetastic, have made M-Three Satcom a landmark in Italy.

detailed diffusion of the service are the key issues which drove such an expansion. The new Rome site will host an office area and a technical area (both inside and outside the main building), and its structure has been built with the same accuracy in detail and quality, as the San Giuliano teleport. The organization (teleport, veichle area and area system integration) is also modelled on the same site.

A very important step ahead “We have good relationships with our clients; from these we learnt about their needs and invested in this new teleport that will fulfill their expectations.” says Michele Magnifichi. “Also, Central and South Italy are key areas in the broadcast panorama and we wanted to take full advantage of a local installatiton in these areas. This facility allows us to increase our distribution capability, to achieve geographic redundancy inside Italy both for M-Three Satcom and our partner teleports, to guarantee our clients to reach quickly both our recording and broadcasting vans and our techincal personnel in case on-situ assistance is needed I N

I T A LY


(e.g. VAR Thompson for system integration and action). All these features make our new teleport a very important and valuable logistic solution for all companies located in Central and Southern Italy”. The new teleport will have its key figures in: l Maximum efficiency for international connectivity, thanks to its location inside a main node of Interoute l Strategic location: the most important broadcasters’ stations are directly “in sight”: connection and access to M-Three network is thus very easy l GbE connection to Milan MThree Teleport and to the whole network l Same Logistic and Safety procedures and standards as Milan M-Three Teleport l Outdoor broadcasting area relies on 4 antennas 3,70 on Ku band and DBS l Motorized antenna for spot broadcasting or back-up broacasting in broadband l “collocation service” for customers and operators and immediate customer assistance l Recording and broadcasting vans available.

M-Three and Eutelsat’s Ka-Sat KA-SAT is Eutelsat latest challenge; KA-SAT operates on the Ka frequency band (26,5 – 40 GHz). KA-SAT was launched by the Proton rocket from Baikonur on December 26th, 2010, and is equipped with four groups of

T H E

B E S T

M-Three Satcom’s SNG veichles multifeed antennas, with the highest pointing precision and wide customization available. To focus on a specific geographic area (small in size, if compared with actual satellite standards), 82 spotbeams are available: this feature entitles the KA-SAT as the most advanced multi-spot satellite currently in operations, worldwide. Each spotbeam is associated with a 237 MHz transponder, and provides a 475 Mb/s band. The multispot design allows to re-use the same frequency on different antennas, each serving not confining geographical areas: with this feature, KA-SAT uses the same frequency on 20 different antennas, thus enhancing the actual band of the satellite up to70 Gb/s (definitely a cosmic value). Main uses of KASAT includes Internet nomadic access, company networks, IP telephone services or medical services. Innovative broadcast services can also be carried out. M-Three exploited the most advanced features of KA-SAT to design and launch an innovative service on the broadcast market. A new compact van, with low costs in fitting and operation,

with a high degree of modularity has been designed and built. The van relies on Fiat Ducato mechanics, fitted with preconnected modules (“cases”) , ready for plug-and-play. Each “case” can host a complete production system focused on a defined environment: video SD, video HD, audio, terrestrial or sat receiving system, or any combination of the previous according to the needs of the customer when working on the field. The most important innovation is the connection between each case and the remaining devices stably fitted on the van: a simple RJ-45 cable will do the job. This van has a complete IP architecture, and this completes KA-SAT features very smoothly and efficiently. Time by time, according to the production to perform, the van can be equipped just with the modules specific for the job. After the connection with the inboard devices has been made, with the RJ-45 cable, all “case” devices will automatically set-up to operate together with the van devices.

a production in the field may book their space on-line, saving time and with a ease in connection up-to-now unknown.

POWERBOX ITALIA

Powerbox: in business for more than 25 years Powerbox has been in business for more than 25 years. We have designed thousands of different power supplies in power ranges from 1 W to tens of kW in all quadrants AC/DC, DC/DC, DC/AC and AC/AC converters The target of any development process are the customer’s need, priorities and requirements and based on these we utilize the technologies, components and topologies that best fit the product. Of course, we take full advantage of earlier designs to fully benefit of our previous experiences and our knowledge. However, for some developments this is not enough and we have to stress the matter to find the optimal solution. During the development process, we continuously check that the result will meet applicable laws and standards as well as the required certifications and environmental constraints defined in the design specification. Each market segment has its own set of requirements that must be considered and fulfilled. The relevant requirements are not of course the same, but they all have one thing in common:They all have precisely defined demands for voltage, current, power, and performance to ensure reliable and continuous operation. In selecting the optimal power supply it is essential to ensure that the characteristics of the power supply are correctly matched to

the application needs. For example, in the medical sector, where the continuous operation of a power supply can be a matter of life or death, both safety and reliability issues are major concerns. Our long and very broad experience in power supply development enables us to offer you custom designed products for a wide variety of electronics: from small to very large, from one input to many inputs, from ultra low voltage (few V) to high voltage (10’s of kV), etc. Our top skills are in complex designs with many output voltages, high isolation and tough environmental conditions. With many years experience in designing power supplies there is practically no application beyond our capability. We are able to offers a wide range of power supplies mainly developed for equipment for the transmission of analog and digital television signals or FM transmission. Serving an ever increasing number of new customers and products, Powerbox Italy has developed extensive skills in providing power supply products for the Broadcasting market. One key factor behind our success is the Italian design team's skills in the unique

Powerbox offer advanced and reliable technical solutions in line with the company's strategy. Examples of the broadcasting applications include: l High power analog /digital TV transmitters l MMDS modulator l TV Exciters l Audio Mixers l Compact high power amplifier l FM Transmitters For all of these applications, reliability of the power supply is mandatory. Down time is very expensive and any failure or misservice may also be costly due to remote locations and tower mounted equipment.

The design, the pre-series assessment and the precompliance tests of the units are directly performed by Powerbox whereas the manufacturing is taken care of qualified partners. The co-operation is very close, allowing easy and fast feed-back from the factory to the R&D department. The design is then refined to best suit the production criteria The manufacturing partners are located both in Italy and in Eastern Europe. The Eastern European partners are mainly involved in the manufacturing of mature products and high volumes. Certification support too is provided to the customers.

product portfolio caters for all the broadcaster needs. That’s why we want today to highlight only our two latest solutions. SDT ARK-6: The DVB-T2 Series Screen Service, after introducing 3 years ago the first generation of DVB-T2 transmitters, now introduces the new stunning version, leveraging on experience of 3 years of fault free operation - a DVB-T2 transmitter ready to deploy in the market DVB-T2, which represents the state-ofthe-art in digital terrestrial broadcasting. The specification introduces the latest modulation and coding techniques to enable highly efficient use of valuable terrestrial spectrum for the delivery of audio, video and data services to fixed, portable and mobile devices. Building on the foundations of the successful DVB-T system, DVB-T2 allows 50% to 67% (as per ETSI TR 102 831 V0.10.04) increase in capacity in equivalent reception conditions. Broadcasters deploying DVB-T2 will be able to roll out more multiplexes offering multichannel HDTV &

3D services and create innovative new datacasting opportunities. Screen Service is one of the organizations that, between June 2007 and September 2008, have actively contributed to create the body of work that defines the DVB-T2 standard. The final specification is based on carefully considered commercial requirements that include an increase in capacity and improved robustness. DVB-T2 uses OFDM (orthogonal frequency division multiplex) modulation to deliver a robust signal and offers a range of different modes making it highly flexible. It employs LDPC (Low Density Parity Check) error correcting codes similar to that used in DVB-S2 for excellent performance in the presence of high noise levels and interference. A significant number of highly innovative features such as Physical Layer Pipes, support of MultipleInput-Single-Output (MISO) and Rotated Constellations are also included. DVB-T2 has been defined so that the standard can be enhanced in the future in backward compatible manner through the use of Future Extension Frames. The specification has already been submitted to ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) for standardization in the ETSI TR 102 831. Screen Service DVB-T2 product range starts from 2.5W rms up to 18KW rms.

TELECOMUNICAZIONI GHISELLINI

Telecomunicazioni Ghisellini new website: www.ghisellinitlc.it The big news is that the whole new line of solutions for the transmission is CE-approved: a further guarantee for the equipment produced by the historic Italian manufacturer, Mr. Bruno Ghisellini We announced in the last edition of this Best of Made in Italy, with the arrival of Edoardo Bosco, that the company would launch a brand new product line, based on the most advanced MOSFET technology solutions. This promise has been kept, and today Telecommunications Ghisellini can offer a catalog with a strong seven-power solutions to the radio market .

Bruno Ghisellini, Laura Sabbioni and Edoardo Bosco

The EXC complete catalog Following the tradition of all Ghisellini equipment, being designed and built in-house, the last period have seen the development of these new products, all aimed at the FM market and all solid-state. The line, denominated GB, includes the following units: the EXC 30GB (exciter); the EXC 30Plus GB (an enhanced version); the EXC 500GB (500W exciter); the EXC 1000GB, the EXC 2000GB and the EXC 3000GB (complete transmitters) and the EXC 10.000GB (a 10-kW unit, complete transmitter). All the units into this power range can be supplied either as "all in one", or as “plug-in devices” to be connected and ready to go on the air, or to be purchased separately, or only for part of modulation/excitement,

or just as amplifiers. Starting from the medium power, the key characteristics of the 1-kW transmitter are its compact size (a total of 2 or 3U, on request, for the power, encoding and amplification devices) and, thanks to the technology implemented, its low power consumption figures, less than 1.6 kW for an effective 1-kW signal. For buyers of medium- and lowpower systems, we know how important the weight of the equipment is. Keeping the weight down facilitates

transport and installation. And the Ghisellini EXC 1000GB in the 2 U version weights just 13 kilograms. It has an output of 1 kW, takes up just two rack units and is no heavier than a few bottles of mineral water! The advantages of a system that one person can move and install on his own are clear. The exciter is housed in a single rack unit and weighs less than 4 kg. It is fully microprocessor controlled and can deliver up to 30W pilot power (but also direct transmission in typical gap-filler applications). From a

&

P R O D U C T I O N

M A D E

physical point of view, we could define it as a ‘pocket’ system even though it boasts topquality technology. This exciter includes an integrated stereo encoder (more money saved!) and is available in two versions: an entry-level configuration and a fully-equipped one. They have the same characteristics in terms of radio frequency but the entry-level model does not have the IP control capability of the enhanced version. Both versions feature GPRS and GSM functions.

I N

I T A LY


All these products are already available and we are glad to point out that some of them, were already delivered and are now on-air in foreign markets. In terms of service features, the range has (as options for all models) GPRS and GSM capabilities, ensuring stable and reliable remote control that is also flexible with regard to alarm functions and operating status checks. Another news is the optional availability of a digital AES/EBU embedded, of any power.

Ever more Africa Last year we already reported the business concluded in the African continent by Telecomunicazioni Ghisellini. We remind now that Ghisellini has supplied some of its 1-kw units with exciters for a radio network in Sudan and an 8-kW unit to renew an existing system (with a power increase) in Guinea Bissau. It is also worth mentioning that in these specific installations, Ghisellini included a photovoltaic power system with solar panels that was still at planning and design

stage. In some installations, solar power constitutes the only source of power; in others, it operates as an integrated blackout recovery system. In all cases, there are panels, batteries and inverters. Ghisellini is currently planning a second installation of the photovoltaic system to feed a radio station in Mansoa (Guinea Bissau). A plant capable of providing a power supply with peak power up to 27 kW is under development. As part of its ‘turnkey’ approach, Ghisellini also arranged for the development and installation of Ghisellini-branded transmitter masts and antenna systems based on Ghisellini project specifications.

Ghisellini on line Telecomunicazioni Ghisellini is a company based on sound decisions, and granting the right solutions without the frills; a company that does not want to make us believe the opposite of what the story is. It is a tailor, not a clothes factory, and it offers a style of tailoring the way it used

to be: tailoring provided by just a small group of people, but people with a lot of experience who know how to handle quality raw materials. Tailoring by professionals who really know how to cut the cloth and who then deliver a final product of a value that it would be hard to find elsewhere. The capabilities of the materials manufacturers that Ghisellini works with ensure that it can also handle larger orders, without, of course, jeopardizing the Ghisellini “house style”.

VECTOR

Vector: Spread Your Network Vision Celebrating its 25th anniversary of activity in professional radio planning solutions, Vector has gained momentum ever since its first step in the telecommunication market Based in Rome, Vector can rely on a skilled team of engineers joined together by the same energy and spirit aimed at satisfying every customer’s needs. Over the years, the good results obtained by Vector have allowed the Company to gain an important position in the Italian telecommunication industry. Today, almost all main Italian operators use software solutions developed by Vector. In recent years, following the strong growth of dissemination in the territory, particularly as far as broadband access and broadcasting are concerned, Vector has expanded its horizons entering foreign markets with its proprietary solutions. Vector’s software solutions are designed and implemented in its dedicated software factory, which invests in the growth and development of its products until they appear to be adequate and updated to satisfy market needs. Beyond important TLC operators, broadcasters and service companies, Vector’s products are currently used by Italian agencies for territory environmental control, as well as by the Italian Ministry of Communications for international coordination.

Activities Vector has focused its attention

on the following subjects: software solutions, territorial data and radio planning services. Vector operates specifically in radio network planning and design, providing software tools for the design, evaluation, management and simulation of radio frequency networks from broadcasting to microwave and point-to-multipoint networks, from broadband wireless access to environmental impact and very low frequency magnetic fields generated by the distribution of power lines. The current tool structure is highly modular and divided into configurable modules to meet every need. Vector offers its customers a fully integrated cartographic management. Beyond the DTM (Digital Terrain Model) available at different resolutions and quality, multi-map layers can be used: land use clutter for ground occupancy description, borders, population clutter, vector and raster data for all the countries in the world. In network planning services, the added value of Vector consists of its skills in developing solutions, based on knowledge and ability to implement different national and international standards and regulations. Its know-how, together with the ability to tailor and customize solutions for

Become our agent! specific requirements, are its other strengths.

Focusing on: Point to Point Microwave radio links for the broadcast industry, as well as the recent transformation process that involves network adjustment for high capacity links in order to handle the expected increase in traffic data, need qualified and reliable tools. In fact, the new engineering of a transport network is an extremely complex process that cannot be achieved without the aid of specialized planning tools. WinRPT is the point-to-point solution thought to manage microwave networks from early planning to automatic frequency assignment, topological network analysis and report generation. Features such as analysis and verification of a radio link, link budget evaluation, availability, quality, margin, losses and, finally,

interference calculations are of course standard features included in the software.

Focusing on: Radio/TV Broadcasting An ever increasing demand for bandwidth in wireless networks due to multimedia-based applications brings along new challenges that need to be overcome. New standards like WiMAX mobile (Worldwide interoperability for Mobile Access) and the more recent LTE (Long Term Evolution) are born for this purpose and together with them new problems have arisen. The interference issue between digital TV and the new ‘4G’ mobile phone networks is just one example. Research indicates that, in a significant number of cases, new mobile networks will interfere with the signals necessary to transmit digital television. In this scenario, as well as in typical broadcasting Broadcasting and more...

matters, Vector offers its dedicated solution: WinBDC. WinBDC allows user to perform coverage and interference analyses working on 3D solid modeling of the region. The steady attention that Vector turns to the needs of the market, talking with its customers and assiduously participating in national and international events, has generated many new features that continuously help to enrich the heritage of WinBDC. Actually, the real strength of the tool is the very strict adherence to operators’ demands. WinBDC produces accurate results, confirmed by our customers’ measurements in the field. The high level of reliability is guaranteed by a particular attention to evaluation methods, ITU/ETSI regulations and implementation of propagation models specific for broadcasting technology. The need to prevent networks from interfering each other is a real example of Vector’s listening to the industry. Through WinBDC Vector’s customers are now able to optimize timedelay of multi-transmitters scenarios in SFN networks simply analyzing the critical areas and “moving” the interference where more favourable. The ability of knowing every geographic and radio detail of the point "under test", considering a list of points in the critical area, means to be able to optimize the network by

assigning the time-delay values that are more suitable for the situation under test. The analysis is strengthened by the ability to compare graphical and analytic results. Elaborations produced by WinBDC or, alternatively, obtained from outside can be merged with the aim of assessing which of the analyzed coverage maps satisfies the requirements. Which are typically the percentage of served area and population density maximization. WinBDC seeks several goals: assisting users in creating new networks, adapting the existing networks to the last generation and finally optimizing the result.

New applications New tools for the Creation of Antenna Diagrams have been set up. Starting from a picture of an antenna diagram in .BMP format (cartesian or polar diagram), the tool returns the numeric values in .TXT format. In this way, diagrams will be easily suitable for reading in WinRPT and hence available to be inserted in the database. The recent introduction of the online license offers new horizons, too. A new application, external to WinRPT, which provides access to the Radio Data Base (RDB) via any client unit in IP network acts as a go-between user friendly tools for consultation of the RDB database (without needing a client of WinRPT) and the

marketing department. Database inspection, research through access filters, reports generation, representation over Google and statistical analysis are now a concrete possibility.

Why choosing Vector? Among the many answers we can give to this question, I would say that the most significant, with reference to the context described above, is the following: Vector does not limit itself to developing and offering its products, but provides customers with a complete support which allows users to benefit from the SOLUTION that best fits their purposes, and makes it work quickly. The reliable structure guarantees that, from the very beginning, customers will receive a unified and harmonic treatment, thanks to its technical and commercial staff working in tight cooperation. Real-time continuous customer support, a key element in Vector's domestic excellent performance, has been immediately extended to its foreign customers, applying the P R O D U C T I O N

same well established system.

Looking for distribution Thanks to its specialized commercial and marketing structure, Vector nowadays attends many events to listen to the market needs and to broadcast its brand. It is for this purpose that, in recent years, Vector has increasingly committed itself to find qualified agents or technology partner companies needed to help the Company in disseminating its broadcasting solutions all around the world.
