PESA Audio and Video Routers Supporting the Summer and Winter Olympics
“….PESA’s Cheetah fiber optic router plays a significant behind-the-scenes role in the distribution of live and pre-recorded video feeds for local distribution, as well as satellite feeds to the United States for re-broadcast. The router is based on an 864×864 frame – which was instrumental in high definition broadcast signals in previous years – populated with 816×800 coax and 48×64 fiber. The system includes PESA’s UCI-2000 controller card that allows it to be controlled via a Sony control interface.
In addition, the Korean Broadcast System installed a complete PESA system, also connected to the main IBC routing system, to support its coverage. The KBS system includes a Cheetah 288×576 video router coupled with a DRS audio router.
“PESA has been providing equipment and service support to broadcast Summer and Winter
Games since 1988,”….
PESA in Sochi for Customer Support at International Broadcast Center
“….For more than 25 years, PESA has provided equipment and service support to broadcasters at the Winter and Summer Games, and we are proud to once again be a part of this worldwide event.”
Designed to support 24/7 routing requirements, the Cheetah line of routing switchers offers high density designs with a flexible crosspoint architecture and wide range of frames and card configurations. All Cheetah frames feature hot-swappable modules for easier service as well as redundant, load-sharing power supplies and superior air flow design for higher reliability. DRS is a full-featured, 24 bit, 96 kHz distributed routing system for audio and time code signals. Based on high-speed multiplexing technology instead of a crosspoint matrix array, DRS requires less complex wiring and fewer cables, which reduces installation and maintenance costs.”
