Lowers total cost of ownership - PESA’s Cheetah line of routing switchers combines the latest in robust technology with the flexibility required to future proof your investment in large-scale, multi-format, and expandable routing needs. PESA continues to lead in signal routing with Cheetah’s ability to offer the widest range of frames and card configurations. Designed to support high-quality routing 24/7, Cheetah routing switchers are well suited for government, military, broadcast, mobile, telco, and corporate applications where large numbers of signals need to be switched. Cheetah provides high-quality signal routing with matrix sizes 64X64 up to 1024X1024.

 

 

High Density Design - All Cheetah frames are designed to operate in the toughest environments and are well suited for mobile truck applications or military tactical operation centers (TOC). Each frame features hot-swappable modules for easy service and all modules employ the latest in digital technology for lower power consumption. All Cheetah routers incorporate redundant, load-sharing power supplies and feature a superior air flow design for even cooling across all critical components - insuring longer life and preventing board-level failures.

 

 

Higher Reliability – Input and Output modules support sixteen ports per card, thus limiting the number of signals that can be affected by a single module. Since 2001, Cheetah systems have been designed around architecture to support mission critical applications. Support for redundant power and redundant control are key elements of the frame package allowing users to easily swap over to backup systems without taking down the entire system.

 

 

 

 

System Flexibility – By offering a flexible crosspoint architecture, Cheetah can support signals from 143Mb/s up to 3Gb/s and can support any broadcast standard including SDI, HD-SDI, DVB-ASI, and 3G-SDI in either optical or copper formats. In addition, Cheetah supports fiber CWDM inputs and outputs with up to 16 HD-SDI channels over a single fiber cable. With optional MUX and DEMUX modules, the Cheetah video router can operate seamlessly with PESA’s DRS distributed audio system allowing up to 128 audio channels per card to be embedded or de-embedded within the Cheetah video frame.

 

 

Frame Expansion – By using a modular approach to inputs and outputs, each Cheetah frame can be configured in non-square and square configurations as low as 16X16. This modular approach provides excellent in-service expansion without requiring complex and expensive frame swap-outs.

 

Wide Range of Frame Sizes – With the widest range of frame sizes, Cheetah offers the most compact I/O configurations available. Cheetah can be configured as compact as 144X144 in just 4RU or up to 1024X1024 by looping two 41RU frames. With sixteen frame types, the Cheetah family of routing switchers easily fits any system requirements – large or small. Integrated Audio – The Cheetah router can be integrated with PESA's DRS Audio system allowing users the flexibility to route embedded AES or discrete audio with any SDI/HD-SDI video stream. With the DRS compact audio router system and Cheetah MUX/DEMUX modules, users have the ability to reduce overall cost and power consumption. With DRS integrated audio modules, any audio input can be embedded to any video output.

 

Comprehensive Control – All of PESA’s routing systems are controlled by the most flexible and comprehensive router control system available. Cheetah frames provide internal slots for up-to two system controller cards providing complete connectivity control to every input and output. Users can easily control the router system from any number of remote control panels or through the Cattrax network control software. Cheetah frames can be configured by many 3rd party control devices such as Crestron, AMX, or other types of automation system via serial or network connectivity.

 

Internal Monitoring and Diagnostics – The Cheetah frame provides unmatched performance for signal management and diagnostics. Smart navigational tools allow quick preview of system performance, power supply voltages, interior temperature, and fan speed.
