PESA’s FUSION 12G SDI video router provides a flexible solution for managing 4K UHD video, meeting current and future signal distribution challenges.

Fusion is designed around a 25G high speed core which does not require four individual input or output ports of the router in a 4x3G configuration to support 12G video, as do many other 12G routers. Fusion supports single-port, uncompressed 4K/p60 SDI video over single-link 12G transport streams.

Fusion offers both modular SFP and coaxial cable 12Gb/s SDI interface ports to provide dynamic connectivity and management for all major signal formats. Built for redundancy and easy upgrade, all major components, including input/output, matrix & control cards are easily accessed from the front.

All Fusion signal paths conform to SMPTE ST 259, ST 292, ST 372, ST 424, ST 2081-1 and ST 2082-1. Fusion also supports DVB-ASI (270 Mbps) and MADI (125 Mbps) digital audio.


  • Largest 4K matrix available
  • Single-link 12G SDI for support of 4K/60 SDI video
  • Dual SFP modules for fiber, copper coax, or HDMI I/O flexibility
  • Works with PESA’s network router control panels and most third-party controllers
  • Scalable to 288x288 (3G)* in 9 RU and up to 576x576 (3G)* in 18 RU
  • Highest density 12 G single-link I/O available
  • Reduces cabling and simplifies management

*Scalable to 288x288 in 9RU for 3G video and 160x160 for 12G video
Scalable to 576x576 in 18RU for 3G video and 320x320 for 12G video


Solid, Reliable System Architecture

Fusion is available in two router frame sizes: an 18RU frame that can be populated up to 576x576 (3G)*, and a 9RU frame for matrix sizes up to 288x288 (3G)*. Both frames feature easy-access, front-loading of all major components - including input, output, matrix & control cards. All plug-in circuit cards and power supplies can be hot-swapped at any time.
Connectivity to the frame is provided by rear-panel blades available as fixed coax and SFP cages for fiber and coax. Full control redundancy is available.

Fusion’s frame control system utilizes a Linux driven, dual core, ARM processor for managing control. The frame controller communicates over Ethernet to each matrix card, which, in turn, communicates with it’s dedicated group of I/O cards.


Choice of Connectivity

Fusion offers both modular SFP and coaxial cable I/O port connection options for simple interface with all major signal formats. Signal input and output connections to the router are made through rear panel I/O blades, each of which mates to a single, front- accessible I/O circuit card containing active circuitry for the signal paths it supports.

The HDBNC I/O blade, for coaxial cable only, utilizes 16 individual connectors for inputs and 16 for outputs. Each channel provides AutoEQ and integrated Reclockers for each input, plus individual multi-rate output cable drivers for each output.

The SFP I/O blade supports 8 dual SFP input cages for a total of 16 input channels and 8 dual SFP output cages for a total of 16 output channels.


Hot Swappable SFPs

Each cage supports a wide variety of available SFP modules, including modules for video over IP, HDMI, fiber and coax connections. All SFP modules can be hot-swapped at any time.


Size Options

Available in two frame sizes, 9RU and 18RU, Fusion can be populated to 288x288 (3G)* and 576x576 (3G)*, respectively.



Built for redundancy and easy upgrades, all major components are easily accessed from the front. Redundancy is available for power, frame controller, matrix card (288) and system controller, if desired.
