VIDBLOX 3G-NE (RX)
Part Number: VIDBLOX-3G-NE-F: 3G-SDI to DVI and Component Video- fiber and coax
Part Number: VIDBLOX-3G-NE-C: 3G-SDI to DVI and Component Video – coax only
Eliminate the need for high cost 3G-SDI monitors: Take your professional broadcast 3G-SDI video signals with embedded audio and convert them to DVI, VGA, RGsB, or RGBHV. Each Vidblox 3G-NE performs perfectly to the SMPTE specifications for inputs in 1080p50/60 resolutions. Quickly and cost effectively display your high definition 3G-SDI video sources on inexpensive large screen displays, monitors, or projection systems. With the built-in scaler, output resolutions can be set to match any SMPTE or VESA display resolution up to 1920x1200. A full array of preset resolutions are supported and when the right resolution cannot be found, Vidblox allows users to define up to three custom resolutions to be stored in memory for instant detection. With up to two input sources, Cattrax software provides a simple 2X1 switch to preset the preferred incoming source. When the Vidblox 3G-NE modules are used in conjunction with our matrix switchers, each 3G-NE is an independent scaling device. For instance; when mixed monitor resolutions are used in a system, the incoming 3G-SDI signal can be scaled to fit any display monitor or projector without affecting the native 3G-SDI signal.
Pick you output destination for DVI, VGA, RGsB or RGBHV: In addition to DVI-D, DVI-I and VGA outputs, each 3G-NE can create other component video inputs such as RGsB, RGBS or RGBHV where sync levels are different than traditional VGA. The output connector is based on a standard DVI-I female connector but by adding the appropriate cable adapter, other component signals can be set in the Cattrax control software.
Built-in support for Fiber optic transmission inputs: Each Vidblox 3G-NE includes an optional SFP cage for adding one additional fiber optic 3G-SDI signals supporting long haul transmission from up to 10km away. An industry standard LC connector provides reliable physical connectivity and precise fiber core alignment. The 3G-NE supports both singlemode and multimode fiber cabling with the optional simplex SFP pluggable fiber module. The fiber port supports output data rates in 1080p50/60. Because transmission over fiber is inherently secure and immune to outside interference, fiber applications are favored in government, military, and medical environments.
With up to two input ports, users can create critical path systems for backup resources, redundant paths, or up to two identical signals routed to the same module- but from different locations: Allows for critical path redundancy with two available input ports that can be set for auto-detect, fixed source, or auto-backup mode
Feed multiple 3G-SDI sources to a single receiver: Offering both coax and fiber inputs in the same 3G-NE module opens up a wide range of capabilities for mission critical redundancy or system backup requirements. With the optional fiber port activated, systems can be setup for long haul receipt of video transports well over 10km away; and with the parallel coax output, a local source device can be supported at distances as far as 80m away. Input feeds are set for auto-detect on the first active source. When both input sources are available, Cattrax software control allows users to set an individual signal input or preset to a backup method with primary/secondary source inputs.
Built-in image adjustments: Route signals at their highest resolution – fit the image to the displays resolution at each Vidblox RX
Cattrax software lets you decide how to display your content with over 20 different settings and adjustments: A wide range of adjustments and calibration features are available with the Cattrax GUI software allowing output scaling, interlace to progressive conversion, test pattern setup, audio muting, analog phase adjustments, and a large array of signal measurements for fiber and coax inputs. The Vidblox 3G-SL includes EDID emulation coding with a large array of support for standard VESA resolutions and the option to include up to three customer defined resolutions.
Configure the Vidblox 3G-NE using PESA’s Cattrax Control Software: Each 3G-NE can be controlled and configured using the local USB port and Cattrax software residing on a PC computer.

The Vidblox 3G-NE includes EDID emulation coding with a large array of support for standard VESA resolutions and the option to include up to three customer defined resolutions.
The 3G-NE accepts unbalanced stereo audio and embeds the signal into the SMPTE 3G-SDI serial digital transport: Each Vidblox NE-3G includes a 3.5mm stereo audio connection for inputting analog stereo signals. The audio signal is first converted to AES digital and then embedded into the SMPTE serial digital transport. Audio can be de-embedded from the 3G-SDI signal as a digital audio source or de-embedded from the Vidblox 3G-NE (RX) modules as an analog audio source.
Configure the Vidblox 3G-NE using PESA’s Cattrax Control Software: Each 3G-NE can be controlled and configured using the local USB port. With PESA’s Cattrax GUI control application running on a host PC, users can access a large array of setup and diagnostic screens for perfect signal distribution.
Advanced diagnostics and control management software to configure you Vidblox extenders and routing system: Cattrax is PESA's Windows® based system control software application that allows any PC to become a full-featured controller and status monitor for Vidblox. From the menu the operator can monitor the alarm status and health of the device, or perform any configuration function. One can monitor, adjust and/or change operating parameters of any Vidblox module in real-time.
Cut your AC power plug requirements by placing the Vidblox units in the 2RU rack mount kit. Up to four modules can be powered off one AC outlet: PESA’s Power Distribution Rack kits offer a more streamlined and power efficient method of managing multiple modules in a rack mounted environment. These power distribution rack mount systems are optimized for PESA’s Vidblox series of extender modules. Sharing a common power supply source, up to four VidBlox can be mounted in 2RU or two modules in 1RU.
Power Efficiency - Units include an AC Adapter module for 100-240V, 47-63Hz, 1.2A power input providing 12V, 7A output. Easy deployment options include connectivity methods for a single power source or a redundant power source. AC power is based on a standard IEC plug for easy adaption to any worldwide AC outlet
Flexible mounting – The power distribution rack mount system makes use of a quick and easy “no-tools” mounting system with captive thumb-screws to hold each module in place. With this design any Vidblox unit can be removed, replaced, or swapped more efficiently without the need of powering down other modules in the rack.
Viewable front LED indicators – each rack frame has openings to allow immediate monitoring of LED displays on the front panel of each installed module.
