BURLINGTON, Iowa, Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The FlatWave® AIR outdoor amplified HD antenna, introduced today by Winegard, is the newest member of the FlatWave family of technology-driven, HD antennas. To get free over-the-air HD reception, consumers simply mount the AIR outside and point it in the direction of the local TV broadcast tower. The antenna is ideal for extra TVs in the house not connected to cable or satellite or for consumers looking to 'cut the cord,' as it connects to up to four separate flatscreen TVs.
This next-generation dual-band HD antenna features an integrated reflector with an embedded amplifier and signal boosting technology packaged in a sleek, yet durable design to deliver the best HD reception available. Users can enjoy top rated programs in pure HD, along with additional multi-cast programs including local news and weather, all with no monthly fees.
Equipped with Winegard's unique Clear Circuit Technology™, the AIR provides ultra low noise figure of 1 dB typical meaning less dropouts and pixelation, and better reception. State of the art TwinAmp Technology™ separately amplifies VHF and UHF signals for maximum signal handling capability to maintain the purest signal path possible. Equipped with bandpass filters, the AIR minimizes RF interference so the antenna can provide superior performance.
Mounting the antenna is easy with the Flex Mounting System that provides angling options for optimal positioning in the attic, on the deck, siding, roof, etc. allowing users to pull in signals from up to 60 miles away. The AIR comes with a power converter, a USB connector and a 110V adapter making set up simple.
"The FlatWave AIR marks a major advancement in broadcast TV antennas and is the future of free HDTV," said Winegard National Sales Manager Grant Whipple. "It contains an ultra low noise dual-band preamplifier to produce the best HD reception with a 60 mile range. There is truly no other broadcast TV antenna technology on the market today that can match the AIR."
The antenna measures 14 in. wide by 14 in. high by 4 in. deep and is firmly held in an adjustable 14 in. tall flex mounting system. The AIR antenna features a robust design, built to endure harsh environmental conditions. Its tough industrial strength housing and powder coated mounting system have undergone wind load and salt spray survivability testing successfully (120 mph wind load survivability and salt spray tested.)
The FlatWave AIR is designed and assembled in the USA and retails for $129.99. For more information on the antenna or where to buy, visit www.getfreetv.com.
