PESA, a U.S. manufacturer of high-definition video and audio signal distribution solutions is now accepting orders for its new OC44-3G-P4, a multi-rate four input and four output high definition routing system with a full set of features for network control.
The OC44-3G-P4 is part of the PESA’s latest generation of reliable, cost effective, high definition multi-rate routers designed for SDI studios, high performance digital signage, and the latest in high definition video for security and surveillance applications.
Self-contained in a 1 rack unit (RU) chassis, the new OC44-3G-P4 offers full auto equalization at each input for cable lengths over 300m (1000 ft) at 720p and 100m (300 ft) at 1080i or 1080p, the company says. Each output port can be configured for standard SMPTE reclocking data rates or set for auto-bypass mode when non-SMPTE signals are required.
In addition, the unit is capable of storing multiple switch presets and provides glitch-free switching with Genlocked sources. Signal management control includes breakaway level switching and output signal locking.
The OC44-3G-P4 is configurable for a variety of control options including Ethernet connectivity, RS-232 serial control, or from a local pushbutton control panel. Additionally, PESA’s open control system protocol is easily configurable by many third party management systems.
Each OC44-3G-P4 comes standard with PESA’s Virtual Panel Windows GUI interface or it can be upgraded to the full-featured Cattrax network based control and diagnostics software program.
