TVMAX3000+ was a great low-cost TV transmitter, but it had a few drawbacks. This is why we decided to bring out a new model and now it is finally here! Our new up to 7W UHF TV transmitter is your ticket into the world of TV. Now with support for remote directional coupler and RF power limit so you can build 100W, 200W, 500W or stronger TV transmitter. Build your own TV studio and broadcast your own TV program! Transmit movies from your PC to your living room, re-transmit the TV program you've never been able to receive in your valley, run a college TV station, cover rural areas of Africa with TV signal from satellite stations, run a hotel cable system info pages or just have fun... this unit will keep you busy during the cold winter evenings and is sure to provide lots of fun for many months to come!
Unit is available as a populated and tested board or a rack-mounted ready-to-use transmitter. Rack mounted unit runs from 50V DC from mains power adapter. Optional stereo encoder board plugs into the main transmitter board to provide stereo sound and DSP processing for NTSC. Up to 7W of output power offers from several hundred meters up to about 8km of range depending on antenna type used on transmitting and receiving side. High-gain yagis on both sides might offer even more range in favorable conditions.
Unit is rugged and comes with SWR protection, made for 24/7/365 operation. Each unit has a wide-angle high contrast back-lit LCD display. Output power and channel can now be adjusted via LCD module.

Look HERE for all manuals, drivers and support.

How is the TVMAX 5005U+ different from the old and now obsolete TVMAX3000U?
- New model is powered from 24-48V DC
- Power and SWR are now displayed on the LCD module
- It can now read POWER and SWR from external directional coupler (DIGIAMP mini), it can also monitor amplifier temperature and SWR
- Power limit trimmer lets you limit output power, this is practical for driving big amplifiers
- Fits our new 19" 1H rack, a couple new extra holes compared to old rack
- PC remote control via RS232, USB or Ethernet (requires IO board or ethernet expansion board)
- Wideband, there is now no tuning required when changing TV channel
- About double the output power of the previous model
- Improved video quality
- New menu system, taken from our FM line

General features:
- Powered from 28-48V
- DSB AM modulation, universal audio and TV standards
- Fits our new 19" 1H rack
- Built-in CPU for controlling and monitoring
- PC remote control via RS232, USB or Ethernet (requires IO board or ethernet expansion board)
- It can now read POWER and SWR from external directional coupler (DIGIAMP mini), it can also monitor amplifier temperature
- Adjustable TV channel (via LCD module with up/down keys)
- Easily adjustable TV and sound standard (via LCD module)
- Built-in test signal generator
- Supports all world TV standards: All PAL versions, SECAM, NTSC
- TV Channels: All UHF (470-855MHz in 250KHz steps)
- HAM TV Channels: 421.00-440.00 in 125KHz steps
- SWR and TEMP protection
- Stereo sound possible with plug-in board (NTSC)
- Friendly user interface
- Output power: 7.5-8W typ. (ch21), 1W (ch50), adjustable from 0 to Pmax via LCD display,
- Maximum output power is obtained at low UHF channels, than it starts dropping and is below 1W at channel 69, still the results are much better than with TVMAX 3000!
- Output impedance 50 Unbalanced, VSWR less than 2:1 for full output
- Output connector BNC female ( rear panel )
- Frequency range: TV UHF band
- Audio connectors: RCA (cinch)
- Audio level: 1Vpp
- Video level: 1Vpp
- Audio input impedance: 10K resistive, unbalanced
- Pre-emphasis 50 or 75usec
- RF Spurious: -80 dBc @ +- 1MHz min. out of carrier
- RF Harmonics: -50 dBc Standard
- Regulated power supply: DC 50V/2A
- Weight: 0.5kg
- Dimensions: 100x125mm, same as TVMAX 3000+ (there are several new holes for screws)
- A fan is needed at all times (blowing across the board)

What is the DSP Stereo Encoder for USA/NTSC?
- This add-on card enables stereo sound, it was designed for NTSC system, used in USA and most of South/North America.

What is the 1000W external power/swr meter?
- This add-on card enables building strong TV transmitters, it is placed after an amplifier and makes it possible to show output power and swr on the LCD display of the transmitter. The add-on card connects to the TVMAX 5000 via simple flat cable. This is recommended for experienced builders only.

What is the USB IO board for?
- This add-on card lets you connect this transmitter to the PC via standard USB cable (not included). You can fully monitor transmitter via PC (power, frequency and other settings).

What is the Ethernet remote control module for?
- This add-on card lets you connect this transmitter to the PC via Ethernet network. You can control and monitor the status of your transmitter over Ethernet or Internet.

What is the Predrilled LCD front panel?
- This is a square piece of aluminum with predrilled holes for LCD display, buttons and LED diodes. It also has 4 holes in the corner so you can easily mount this to your case. This makes it much easier to mount the transmitter into a nice looking case (eliminates the hard work with the LCD).

Antenna options
You can check all our TV antennas here.
We have also provided a low cost LPTV antenna with 5 meters of coaxial cable with installed connectors, the high gain LPTV UHF panel antenna (wideband UHF) is suitable for 1-2W of power max due to ferrite transformer used inside, it is perfect for transmission in one general direction and offers lots of gain. It is perfect for 2-way transmission from one point to the other or to cover an erea from the edge, for example from a hill located next to the city.
The professional panel antenna option will resist any weather, offers even more gain and can handle up to 1500W of power. Radiation pattern is similar and this antenna is as well perfect for transmission in one general direction and it is perfect for 2-way transmission from one point to the other or to cover an erea from the edge, for example from a hill located next to the city.

To purchase coaxial cable and connectors for this transmitter look HERE.
