PESA Supplies Premiere Routing Switcher to Calhoun College

New switcher will enable flexible and reliable video distribution within new technology center (December 13, 2005)

PESA, a leading provider of analog and digital video and audio equipment for broadcast applications, today announced that Calhoun Community College, the largest credit-producing college of the 27 two-year institutions comprising The Alabama College System, has installed a 12x8 PESA Premiere routing switcher to move video throughout the new technology center at Calhoun's Decatur, Ala., campus.

Once installed, the Premiere system will enable flexible switching of programming such as the NASA channel, video from the college TV station, and computer-generated informational PowerPoint presentations to plasma screens located in the "Cyber Space" student lounge -- an area that provides students with both wired and wireless Internet access -- as well as to screens in the building entrance and break room.

"We have campuses in Decatur and in Huntsville, where both NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center and PESA are located," said Calhoun Community College IT Director Laquita Nelson. "A lot of people in this area have had positive experiences with PESA equipment, and their feedback was an important part of our purchase decision."

The PESA Premiere routing switcher provides the simplest and most reliable out-of-the-box performance of any routing switcher to date. Ideal for multimedia applications, the Premiere can handle a variety of signal types including composite, Y/C, RGB, RGBHV, and stereo audio. Included in Premiere are RS-232, USB, Ethernet, and PESA PRC connectivity along with PESA Windows-based setup software and a local control panel.

The new Premiere system at Calhoun Community College is scheduled to go live in January 2006.
