Pesa’s new Jaguar-3 high definition matrix switcher is looking to help customers get a better grip on video transport needs.
The 64x64 matrix switcher routes all SMPTE and ITU standard serial digital video signals and supports embedded audio and other ancillary data required for HD-SDI and DVB/ASI broadcast sources.
The company says it is perfect for SD-SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI switching applications in digital cinema, telemedicine, high-end presentation rooms, satellite imaging, command centres, and simulation/ visualisation environments.
It occupies only 2RU but supports standard data rates from 50Mbps up to 3Gbps, and video transports up to 1080p/60. All inputs are auto-equalised; and with standard SMPTE formatted outputs, each signal is auto-sensed and re-clocked to the appropriate transport stream.
Also new from Pesa at the show was the Vidblox 3G-SL-F which receives coax or fibre optic 3G-SDI serial digital video signals over a single fibre or coax cable and converts SMPTE 259M, 292M, or 424M compliant signals into a DVI-I or component analogue video output.
