TVMAX5000 50mW VHFLO/VHFHI/UHF TV pallet driver  


TVMAX3000+ was a great low-cost TV transmitter, but it had many drawbacks. This is why we decided to bring out a new model and now it is finally here! Our new 5000 series 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 12V to 48V DC or from mains power adapter. Optional stereo encoder board plugs into the main transmitter board to provide stereo sound and DSP processing for NTSC. Around 50mW of power is enough either for short-line video links, indoor re-transmitting or driving pallet TV amplifiers. 50mW with two high-gain directional antennas can offer more than several hundred meters of range. With suitable pallet amplifier this power can be amplified to 20W, 200W or more. External directional coupler (SWR/POWER meter) lets your LCD display the power, swr and other parameters.
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 be adjusted via LCD module.

Look HERE for all manuals, drivers and support.

- New model is powered from 24-48V DC, 50mW model works starting from 12V
- 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)

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).
