Crosscreek Television routes signals with QuStream

Crosscreek Television Productions has purchased a QuStream Cheetah 288x576 HD video router and DRS audio router to outfit its new HD broadcast truck, Voyager VIII HD.

The new truck is slated to hit the road in August to help ESPN cover the 2008 football season as well as other events.

John Peers, VP of engineering for Crosscreek, said he needed a router with standard-sized BNC connectors and internal power supplies in a compact form. The QuStream product offered the smallest router with the most functionality.

The Cheetah 288x576 provides a large number of outputs to handle monitor walls for broadcast and mobile applications, or applications that feed a large number of devices concurrently, in 18RU. The Cheetah routers use standard-size BNC connectors, internal redundant power, redundant frame and system controllers, and have the ability to mix copper, fiber and CWDM fiber all in the same frame.

The Cheetah DRS multiformat audio router sends audio over GigE with either a single Cat 5 or fiber cable, allowing Crosscreek to connect multiple frames between its A and B units. The router allows the company to use input and output frames in the production area to feed audio monitors and in the replay area to feed servers and tape machines. This keeps cable runs extremely short, preserves signal quality and reduces cable costs, time of installation and maintenance.

The Cheetah DRS allows a mix of AES and analog, synchronous and asynchronous audio, with support for Dolby E.

With higher resolutions and larger HD screens, wide shots using very wide lenses can be a problem because they allow viewers to see that infinity doesn’t quite resolve into perfect sharpness.
