Mid-Sized 3G Routing Switchers




PESA’s Jaguar-3 64X64 matrix switcher routes SMPTE and ITU standard serial digital video signals; plus it supports embedded audio and other ancillary data required for HD-SDI and DVI/ASI broadcast sources. For digital cinema high definition video distribution requirements, the Jaguar-3 can be configured to switch SMPTE 372M dual-link HD-SDI in configurations up to 32X32. Jaguar-3 is perfect for SD-SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI switching applications in digital cinema, telemedicine, O&P, high end presentation rooms, satellite imaging, military command centers, and simulation/visualization environments.

Although small in size – it occupies only 2RU of rack space, Jaguar-3 is big on performance – supporting standard data rates from 270Mbps up to 3Gbps, and video transports up to 1080p/60. All inputs are auto-equalized; and with standard SMPTE formatted outputs, each signal is auto-sensed and re-clocked to the appropriate transport stream. Signals can be re-clocked up to 80m for 1080p/60. For non-standard formats, re-clocking circuitry can be set to by-pass mode.

Two independent reference inputs allow easy selection of gen-lock from a black burst or tri-level sync source. The compact frame design features front load / hot swappable card sets and includes space for an optional redundant power supply and controller module. Jaguar-3 provides control ports that allow configuring the frame for a variety of control interfaces including Ethernet control, PESA’s PERC2000 or 3500Pro, and PESA’s new Cattrax graphical user control interface; plus it can be used with PESA’s full range of control panels.

PESA’s Cattrax is an intuitive, easy to use GUI control system supporting the Jaguar-3 as well as the full line of PESA router frames. It is installed on a host PC running the Windows® operating system and communicates via an Ethernet port located on each router. For large, high-speed digital interface switching systems, the Cattrax full-feature Control and Management software application supports comprehensive configuration, diagnostics and monitoring.

PNET Control Panel: PESA Network Remote Control Panel

The PNET series of network enabled remote control panels are designed specifically to operate with the Small Scale System Controller. Each panel is only 2 inches deep and fits in any standard rack system. The panels are connected using standard RJ-45 jacks and include a looping CATx connector for adding additional panels in series.
