PESA Cheetah Sets Standard for Large-Scale Routing SystemsNew 1024x1024 Cheetah system uses less power, less cabling, and less rack space by using internal DA circuitry (March 22, 2006)
PESA, part of the QuStream group of companies and a leading provider of analog and digital video and audio equipment for broadcast applications, will set a new routing system benchmark at NAB2006 with the introduction of the first 1024x1024 router in two equipment racks. Ideal for facilities such as cable head ends, cable and broadcast networks, satellite facilities, telco companies, and corporate facilities, the new Cheetah 1024XR allows users to handle a large number of inputs and outputs in a broad range of signal formats.
Until PESA created the Cheetah 1024XR system, routing systems of this size required multiple frames using external DAs with a plethora of coax cable, power supplies, and rack space. The companys new two-rack system is achieved through the addition of an on-board distribution circuit into each 1024x512 frame.
Cheetah 1024XR systems support high-quality signal routing for SDI, HD, and ASI in either coax or fiber I/O. Delivering unprecedented value for large routing systems, they provide high performance and top quality in any environment that needs a large numbers of signals. Each 41-RU frame allows for very low power consumption, N+1 power, and dual internal control. Because the new Cheetah is designed as a base digital system, broadcasters can start working with SD signals and upgrade later to HD with minimum cost.
PESAs newest large-scale router is delivered along with the companys 3500PRO control software and Viewport setup and diagnostics software, a very powerful system that allows the user to customize frame settings, monitor the health of the unit, incorporate SNMP network management software, and set output option cards for optimum performance on an output-by-output basis.
