PESA Debuts Vidblox 2K Series of Extender Modules

Huntsville, Alabama – PESA, a leading U.S.-based custom design and build manufacturing company for professional audio and video signal distribution, today announced its new series of Vidblox 2K dual link extenders, which transport 2K video over coax and/or fiber. Vidblox 2K units extend high-resolution, computer-based content to or from broadcast serial digital equipment.

Each Vidblox 2K transmitter (TX) and receiver (RX) pair supports coax, fiber, or both copper/fiber connectivity, which can be used to cost effectively distribute multiple 2K video signals simultaneously. Video resolutions up to 2560x1600@60Hz are supported via a DVI-D dual link connector, with analog stereo embedded in the video transport.

For added value, Vidblox 2K modules can be combined with PESA’s full line of 3G-SDI routing switchers for 2K distribution and switching systems up to 288x288. On the local TX module, a looping DVI-D output allows quick monitoring status to check video content and image quality, and each Vidblox 2K can be networked for remote control using PESA’s Cattrax network control software.

“Vidblox 2K are simple, inexpensive devices that can take the place of multiple components and solve a number of integrator challenges for ultra high-resolution video,” said Dan Holland, PESA vice president of product marketing. “The new Vidblox 2K extenders create the perfect 2K distribution path between computers and HD video broadcast gear.”
