QuStream to showcase new routing at NAB2007
The Cheetah 864 multirate video router (864 x 864 I/O) has been reduced to only 41 rack units and provides both HD and SDI on either copper or fiber in the same frame. The Cheetah 864 offers internal redundant power, redundant frame and system controllers and external full-size BNC connectors.
Building on the success of the Cheetah 512XR in 27RU, QuStream now packs 576 x 576 in that same 27RU with the Cheetah 576XR. This router features standard Cheetah input cards, output cards, fiber cards, matrix cards, frame controllers, system controllers and power supplies internal to the frame.
In a concept that follows QuStream’s 64XE and 128XE frame designs, which offer a large number of outputs to handle large monitor walls for broadcast and mobile applications, or applications that feed a large number of devices concurrently, QuStream is introducing the Cheetah 288 x 288 and 288 x 576 routers in only 18RU. The 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.
QuStream will also introduce the 603 distribution/signal processing frame in a 3RU frame, with 20-slots, redundant internal power supplies, frame controller cards and cooling fans. This new frame uses patented Fortel technology to house the company’s newest cards, including the DVA-615 HD/SDI multirate distribution amplifier, DDA-600 downconverting monitoring distribution amplifier and DAA-635 AES audio distribution amplifier.
