At IBC2004 PESA will make its European launch of the world's first photonic routing switcher integrated with a PESA routing control system.
Pesa's XD photonic routing switcher
The XD system can switch any signal format, including video signals of any definition, and deliver completely transparent connections between any of its input fibers and output fibers without converting light to electrical signals. The company has developed the new fiber optic routing switcher solution in partnership with Glimmerglass Networks.
PESA also will show Premiere, its newest range of routing switchers, available in matrix sizes based on 8x4, 12x8, 16x8 and 16x16 sizes.
Premiere can handle a variety of signal types including composite, Y/C, RGB, RGBHV, and stereo audio.
Also new for PESA are CAT PAWS, small-footprint video transmitter and receiver modules that allow distribution of high-resolution computer video signals over CAT-5/UTP twisted-pair cables.
Each module comes with an RJ-45 connector and an HD-15 connector for RGBHV sources and allows SXGA resolution (1280x1024) signals to be sent over CAT-5 cable as far as 450 feet (137 meters).
