Pesa addresses large-scale routing needs with Cheetah 512XR
The new Cheetah 512XR features low power consumption; SDI, ASI, and HD-SDI signal support; internal fiber I/Os; and optional built-in conversion cards.
Pesa has expanded its line of Cheetah routing switchers with its new Cheetah 512XR system. The large-scale router can be configured to 512x512, non-expandable 1024x128, or 512x256 with fully redundant crosspoints in 27RUs.
The Cheetah 512XR features low power consumption; SDI, ASI, and HD-SDI signal support; internal fiber I/Os; and optional built-in conversion cards.
It also supports Pesa’s Watchdog Matrix redundant crosspoint option, which can be employed to achieve full redundancy for power, control, and crosspoints all within the same frame. Each power supply supports either N+1 or full redundant power. Complete control is provided by Pesa’s 3500PRO and Viewport diagnostic software.
The Cheetah 512XR offers 128 optional output conversion ports for support of in-frame signal conversion. Up to 16 channels per option card enable complete signal-path customization. Users requiring downconversion from HD to SDI or from digital to analog can use the Viewport software to set each signal path.
