May 22, 2005
Veteran production company Mobile Television Group is outfitting its newest mobile production truck, 10HDX, with a 64x64 Cheetah HD router and a 128x256 Cheetah analog router from Pesa.
10HDX will support HD coverage of sporting events throughout southern California.
The Mobile Television Group previously upgraded two of its trucks with Cheetah systems, 6HDX and 5HDX, and now with 10HDX the company will boast six HD units on the road. The 53ft-long 10HDX SD/HD unit expands to 13ft wide and features 14 cameras, numerous decks and replay/edit systems, and support for a broad range of incoming and outgoing feed formats. The new truck, designed and constructed by Colorado Studios, is scheduled to launch in May.
The Cheetah, Pesa’s flagship router system, is a full-featured digital routing switcher with the power to handle SDI, HDTV, and non-standard digital signals in the same frame. To accommodate a wide range of requirements, the Cheetah is available in 64x64, 128x128, 256x256, and 512x512 frame sizes and can handle bit rates from 3Mb/s up to 1.5Gb/s. It has input and output modules available in both copper and fiber.
