FRAME, EBU turn to PESA for Torino Olympics routing solutions

A variety of broadcasters are using PESA routing solutions to support international delivery of audio and video from the 2006 Winter Games in Torino.

Operating out of Padua, Italy, FRAME operates a fleet of OB vans for hire in southern Europe. Chief engineer Andrea Gianolli selected the PESA Cheetah SD-HD multirate router for coverage of the Torino Games because of the system's compact size, signal-format capability and router system controller.

The PESA Cheetah 128 x 128 router is capable of simultaneously handling SDI and HDTV signals from the International Broadcast Center as well as the production group's own sources.

The Geneva-based European Broadcast Union (EBU) has been using a PESA Tiger router regularly for major sporting events, upgrading the system routinely so that this year's Olympics coverage is supported by a fully populated Tiger SDI router with a companion audio router and a large quantity of RCP-PVPG control panels, each of which was designed specifically for EBU.
