Elenos to Launch Itelco America and 4K Solutions at 2018 NAB Show

Will showcase Live 4K (UHD) broadcast with new ATSC 3.0

Orvieto, ITALY—29 March 2018
Following the purchase of United States firm Broadcast Electronics, Elenos Group will officially
launch the opening of Itelco America at the 2018 NAB Show, which runs from April 7–12 in Las
Vegas. Both BE and Itelco America will be present on booth N6106.

Located in Quincy, Illinois, Itelco America, the new U.S.-based operation of Italian television
manufacturer Itelco Broadcast, part of the Elenos Group of companies, will be demonstrating its
advanced product capabilities with a live, end-to- end demonstration of a 4K (Ultra High
Definition) program using the new ATSC 3.0 standard at booth N6106.

On booth N6517, Itelco Broadcast will exhibit its extensive product portfolio, which includes
UHF and VHF systems, offering low- to high-power levels and air and liquid cooling. In addition,
the company has recently developed a new advanced digital exciter MEX II that accommodates
the ATSC standard. The exciter produces ATSC 1.0 signals and is easily switched to 3.0 with a
simple command. The fully digital exciter is also available for most worldwide DTV standards
and can in addition produce analog TV standard signals. It features adaptive pre-correction
functionalities to provide the highest quality signals at maximum transmitter output power and
efficiency, and with minimal out-of- band products.

“It is exciting to be able to demonstrate a UHD broadcast for the attendees at NAB. Many
televisions today are 4K capable, but there is little 4K content available so far, and until the
ATSC 3.0 standard came along, it wasn’t possible to broadcast it through a 6 MHz TV channel,”
said David Neff, vice president of business development for Itelco America. “So many people
haven’t seen true 4K. We are happy to show broadcasters one aspect of what this important
new standard brings them.”
