PESA, a producer of leading professional audio and video signal distribution products, introduces the PRO-3GSDI-1616-C and the PRO-3GSDI-1616-PB Routing Switchers thereby expanding its PRO line of professional AV routers.

The PESA PRO line includes several new features that make that line of switchers attractive for small to mid-sized video switching environments, PESA says. The product line is ideal for SD-SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI switching applications in telemedicine, O&P, high-end presentation rooms, satellite imaging, military command centers and simulation/visualization environments, the firm says.

The PRO-3GSDI-1616 supports all common SMPTE and ITU standard serial digital video signals, as well as embedded audio and other ancillary data required for HD-SDI and DVB/ASI sources, PESA says. In addition, the PRO-3GSDI-1616 supports standard data rates from 50Mbps to 3Gbps and video transports up to 1080p/60. All inputs are auto-equalized. For digital cinema high definition video distribution requirements, it can be configured to switch SMPTE 372M dual-link HD-SDI in configurations up to 8x8, according to the company.

Both the PRO-3GSDI-1616-C and the PRO-3GSDI-1616-PB feature an internal power supply and can have multiple remote control panels added via an Ethernet interface, the company says.

For digital cinema high definition video distribution requirements, it can be configured to switch SMPTE 372M dual-link HD-SDI in configurations up to 8x8, PESA says.

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 100 meters for 1080p/60, the company says. For non-standard formats, re-clocking circuitry can be set to bypass mode. Two independent reference inputs allow easy selection of genlock from a black burst or tri-level sync source.

The PRO-3GSDI-1616’s compact 1 RU frame design features front load, hot swappable card sets, and includes space for an optional redundant power supply and controller module, the company says.
