Secura LYNX – Secure Video over IP Solution for Mission Critical Applications

PESA is leading Command and Control (C2) markets into next generation IP networks with secure encrypted IP video, audio, KVM and USB distribution solutions designed from the ground up using FIPS 140-2 cryptography for DoDIN APL certification.

• NIST standard crypto security (FIPS 140-2)
• Security standards for government and military
• Fully scaleable IP switch fabric 
• Complete end to end solution designs

The Internet Protocol (IP) has widely adopted, yet the components of its basic underlying parts and functions are often still mysterious, especially for audio and video transport. Learn the basics of network infrastructures and become familiar with key terms as you build your foundation of knowledge. Discover the under-the-hood requirements for building scalable, flexible, and secure AV networks.
  1. Gather IP Network foundational knowledge.
  2. Learn about OSI, IGMP, Subnets, Unicast, Multicast, LAN, WAN and more.
  3. Understand IP Security Requirements.
  4. Envision new workflow possibilities.

Secura LYNX Command Center

PESA Secura LYNX Command Center is the centerpiece for the Secura System and provides configuration, control and management of the Secura endpoints and workflow. The Secura LYNX Command Center (SCC) defines, configures and manages all audio, video, USB and KVM signals as well as their inherent security classifications within one system, even as it scales.

Secura IP

Secura audio/video over IP (A/V over IP) endpoints, or nodes, provide secure, AES-256 encrypted, carriage of HDMI 2.0 video and audio, simultaneously supporting multiple authorization levels and multiple video formats with up to 4K UHD resolutions. Plus nodes can be equipped with USB input for Keyboard, Video, Mouse (KVM) over IP.

Secura Navigator Control Panel

Secura Navigator

The PESA Secura Navigator Control Panel is a small, table-top remote control panel, featuring a full color, graphic, touchscreen. Available in multiple sizes, the panel is designed to provide a cost-effective, customizable, solution to control panels for IP endpoint routing.

FIPS 140-2 Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP) Certification bestowed upon PESA Crypto Module used within Secura® VDS-IP for CNSA compliant encrypted, cybersecure video, audio, USB, and control distribution

PESA’s Secura LION is the only live enterprise, cloud-architected, secure CNSA (Suite B) compliant, video distribution platform for closed and distributed environments with encryption in all flows.”

— Howard Sutton


Announcing Secura Multiclass, Source-to-Glass Video Distribution System Over IP (VDS-IP) Platform for Sensitive, Classified, or High-Value Video and Audio

“Because Secura is not constrained to stovepipe, legacy, purpose-built hardware, it is extremely flexible and enables new workflows that were not possible before,” said Howard Sutton, PESA chairman and CEO. “Secura is equally at home in a SCIF C2 environment, as well as in a board room, in a briefing room, or on board a cruise ship.”
