Telsat Will Showcase High Power FM Markoni Transmitters at 2020 NAB Show


Telsat will be a featured exhibitor at the 2020 NAB Show, which is a perfect opportunity for it to showcase its FM Transmitters. The Telsat FM Transmitters generation name is marKoni! It is comprised of MKRT models, with a range of 50W to 40 kW, available in single drive, dual drive or N+1 configuration for the maximum redundancy level.


The philosophy of marKoni transmitters provides a high reliability granted by very robust power supplies and amplification circuits, realized with MOSFET that are able to guarantee excellent performances, with very high efficiency and consequent low heating of all components. Through the very User’s friendly touch screen interface it is possible to check or change the complete system parameters. All this information can be also managed remotely by the network interface on the back panel, otherwise even locally by using the Ethernet connector on the front panel.


The extensive use of high-level Digital Signal Processing gives to marKoni unique features in the audio broadcasting world. The native AES/EBU input module guarantees pure digital quality, avoiding the conversion from an analog source. The presence of the traditional L+R input assures as well top performances even with standard analog audio. The FM modulation is implemented by an innovative direct-RF synthesis algorithm, with sub-Hz accuracy onto an FPGA-based digital processing core. The result is a frequency-agile transmitter with immediate installation procedure, which allows operators to broadcast their audio content with excellent purity and maximum reliability.


marKoni transmitters can be locked to the GPS time/ frequency reference signal for exact carrier allocation and Synchro FM operation, a promising band-efficient method of operating adjacent FM transmitters on the same RF frequency, after aligning all the RF and audio parameters of the transmission. The result is a clearly improved listener’s reception in the overlapping signal area, extending the coverage to shadow areas, normally characterized by inter-channel interference.
A typical application of this iso-frequency approach is the coverage of branches of highways, allowing car radio receivers to keep tuning the same carrier while driving, without the annoying effect of black spots along the road.


The pure digital audio sensation that marKoni creates is obtained thanks to a revolutionary Soft Limiter, which avoids audio intermodulation peaks, while safeguarding the integrity of the whole input dynamic range, with the use of accurate signal processing that allows high full-band stereo separation and extreme signal-to-noise ratio. The units come with a full-option outfit: analog and digital audio, analogue MPX and additional wideband SCA and IP inputs, embedded RDS Generator and Digital Stereo Coder and Web/SNMP remote control. marKoni is a synonymous of environmental sustainability (over 90% of the construction materials are recyclable).
marKoni SERIES the future is here!


About Telesat



“A World for Telecommunications” is the right definition for this company, which is present in the international market since 1998. TELSAT operates in the American territory through its official representative Telsat-USA LLC, incorporated in 2019 ( The mission of Telsat-USA is to support TELSAT s.r.l., which sells/distributes DTV Transmitters, FM Transmitters and high-quality accessories, by some of the best manufacturers in the broadcast world (for example Commscope-Andrew, Spinner and Kathrein). DTV Transmitters are the SERIES 5000, manufactured by the famous German PLISCH GmbH (65 years of History), having Telsat as shareholder with the same CEO. FM Transmitters are the MARKONI, manufactured by Telsat itself and comprised of MKRT models, with a range of 50 W to 40 kW, available in single drive, dual drive or N+1 configuration for the maximum redundancy level.

TELSAT completes its offer with a brilliant Technical Department able to manage strategic activities as Station Engineering, Complex Area Coverage Analysis, Network Planning, Design, Realization of Radio and TV Antenna Systems and Highly Specialized Technical Support for Installation, Assistance and Training. This year Telsat presents its innovative solution for a New Generation of Broadcasting Networks: The Broadcast Smart Platform (BSP), which allows to have a complete portable broadcasting site in one single mast-mounted unit.
