PESA Brings Extended Reach Capabilities to Cheetah 3G-SDI Routing Switcher Series

Huntsville, Alabama – PESA, a leading U.S.-based custom design and build manufacturing company for professional audio and video signal distribution, today announced the immediate availability of its newest coaxial extended reach routing switcher frames. Based on the latest technology for copper-based transmission, the Cheetah series of 3G-SDI frames can now support distances up to 140m. The new frames and expansion cards will be showcased at the NAB Show (Booth SL4305), which runs April 8-11 in Las Vegas, Nev.

Each input card provides 16-channel connectivity and includes the latest technology for frame perfect equalization to 1080p/60. Each output card provides 16-channel connectivity and extends SD-SDI signals up to 400m, HD-SDI up to 200m, and 3G-SDI up to 140m.

“Our new router frames can extend 3G-SDI signals by more than the length of a football field,” said Dan Holland, PESA vice president of product marketing. “As an added feature, the input and output cards can be used to upgrade existing field units to deliver the pristine picture quality you expect from PESA.”

New extended reach router frames are available for sizes ranging from 64x64 up to 576x576. Larger systems can be configured to support up to 1152x1152.
