HUNTSVILLE, ALA. – PESA announced that the U.S. Department of Defense renewed the company’s certification of its Video Distribution System (VDS) solution for command and control operating environments.

The three-year renewal includes a new certification for PESA 4K I/O cards under the Unified Capabilities Requirements 2013 standard. PESA already has certification for its Cheetah digital routers.

The VDS solution received Information Assurance certification from Field Security Operations and Interoperability certification from the Defense Information Systems Agency Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC), which certifies joint and combined interoperability of all DoD information technology and national security systems.

PESA received its initial JITC certification in January 2013, and was the first company to achieve listing on the DoD Unified Capabilities Approved Products List as a VDS. The new certification is valid through Oct. 21, 2018.

PESA plans to showcase its VDS solution at the upcoming 2015 Government Video Expo (www.gvexpo), which runs Dec. 2-3 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

“This new certification allows PESA to add 4K video distribution to command and control centers for all branches of our military and other federal agencies,” said Col. John T. Wright, U.S. Army, retired, PESA senior vice president, sales and business development.
