DVB-T antennas: now trendy eye-catchers
IFA 2019, Hall 10.2
If we’re honest, indoor antennas are seldom a visual highlight. More often than not, one is tempted to put this necessary but dull aid behind the TV. Things look very different with the three new models from Thomson.
The ANT 1439 indoor HD antenna has a cylindrical shape – also a popular shape of smart audio box; the two UHD models, the ANT 1539 and ANT 1639, are particularly flat and compact. Because of its fancy design, the ANT 1639 antenna has the name affix ‘Sculpture’, and rightly so. All three models are fully or partially covered with grey melange fabric, thus blending into the living environment, and still have a trendy appeal.
The active DVB-T/T2 antennas with amplifier and filter technologies for LTE/GSM operate in the frequency band B IV, 470–790 MHz, and ensure HD-Ready and HDTV digital TV reception. The ANT 1539 and ANT 1639 ‘Sculpture’ models also support 4K. In case of the latter, the signal can be precisely adjusted and adapted using the amplifier with operating mode display. All three antennas are supplied with power via a USB connection or via coaxial 5-V remote supply. They therefore manage without an additional power supply unit and switch off when the terminal device is switched off, which also saves energy. The 2.5-metre-long connection cable enables very flexible positioning.
