CHEETAH 64NEX: 64×64 3G-SDI for coax or fiber optic cables (supports easyPORT, embed/de-embed and CWDM)

As part of PESA’s world-class routing switcher line, the Cheetah 64NE, a 64×64 3G-SDI routing switcher, provides a huge advantage over similar offerings on the market today. Starting with its small footprint, the 4RU frame can pack an enormous amount of features normally found in larger frame sizes. For instance, each frame supports internal redundant power and control, so no need to plan for extra rack space. The power efficient frame requires no more than 300 watts when fully loaded. The power supply, control card and matrix card are hot swappable and easily accessible from the front. Control and networking features are offered in a wide range of solutions, including Ethernet control, RS-232 and web-based control.

Input and output cards are available for fiber, coax, and CWDM applications and can be mixed in groups of 16 input or output channels. Signal formats supported include DVB/ASI, SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, and serial data streams from 270Mbps up to 3Gbps. Additionally, signal formats for DVI, VGA, RGsB, RGBHV and YPbPr are handled with our external Vidblox transmitter and receiver modules. Other features include muxing and de-muxing cards supporting 16 HD-SDI channels over a single CWDM fiber cable and full integration of embedding and de-embedding of audio signals with 16 channel plug-in I/O card sets. With PESA’s easyPORT SFP modules fiber-cage input cards can be adapted for NTSC/PAL to SD-SDI and fiber-cage output cards can be adapted for SD-SDI to NTSC/PAL.

All inputs feature auto-equalization and auto-rate sensing.  The digital output cards support reclocking on all outputs and can be set for bypass if reclocking is not required. DVB-ASI is fully supported on every path. Sync reference inputs accept analog black burst in NTSC or PAL formats as well as high definition Tri-level sync.

IntegratedAudio – The Cheetah router can be integrated with the DRS Audio system allowing users the flexibility to route embedded AES or discrete audio with any SDI/HD-SDI video stream. With the DRS compact audio router system and Cheetah MUX/DEMUX modules, users have the ability to reduce overall cost and power consumption. With DRS integrated audio modules, any audio input canbe embedded to any video output.






Comprehensive Control Software– Cattrax™ is PESA’s Windows® based system control software application that allows any PC on a facility network to become a full-featured controller and status monitor for all PESA processing products in the facility. In addition to its controller and monitoring features, the Cattrax “Virtual Design” capability allows designers and installation engineers to design an entire system without having the actual hardware, thus making installation much quicker and easier.
