QuStream Expands Cheetah, Integrity
QuStream Corp. is extending its Cheetah range of routing equipment and Integrity 600 range of broadcast-quality signal processing, conversion and distribution modules. Four new video interface modules for QuStream’s Cheetah range of routers will be introduced at NAB.
The QuStream CH-ADSDI-IN is a video input card with composite A to D decoder input that fits a standard input slot and provides 16 independent channels.
The CH-INPUT-3GB-BNC is a video input card with 16 individual source channels accepting up to 3 Gbps in a standard input card slot.
The CH-OUTPUT-3GB-BNC is a multi bit-rate video output card operating at up to 3 Gbps to deliver up to 16 individual outputs from a standard output card slot.
The CH-HDSDI-OUT-BNC, a video output card with integral HD to SD downconversion, is a direct replacement for standard output cards and provides 16 independent channels that support 16:9 to 4:3; letterbox and center-cut aspect ratio conversion.
The new QuStream Integrity 600 video and audio signal processing and distribution modules are based on the FRM603 high-speed chassis that accommodates up to 20 signal processing cards in addition to the control/genlock boards plus 3 Gbps signal busses between two Star slots and all other boards as well as between adjacent boards.
Offering high component density and high-level redundancy, the Integrity 600 includes redundant power supply and optional redundant control plus reference board for two power busses, two Ethernet busses and two reference signals to every card in the system.
QuStream will be at Booth N3421.
