PESA’s mid-sized Cougar 32X32 3G-SDI Router Offers a Wide Range of New Features in a Compact 1RU package.

Huntsville, Alabama – January 4, 2010- PESA, a major provider of broadcast and Pro AV distribution and router transport solutions expands its line of mid-sized routers with the updated 32X32 Cougar-3. Officially introduced at NAB2009, Cougar-3 is now positioned at a more competitive price point and includes several new features making it a much more attractive package for small to mid-size video switching environments.
PESA’s Cougar-3 32X32 matrix switcher routes all SMPTE and ITU standard serial digital video signals; plus it supports embedded audio and other ancillary data required for HD-SDI and DVI/ASI broadcast sources. For Digital Cinema high definition video distribution requirements, the Cougar-3 can be configured to switch SMPTE 372M dual-link HD-SDI in configurations up to 16X16. Cougar-3 is perfect for SD-SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI switching applications in digital cinema, telemedicine, O&P, high end presentation rooms, satellite imaging, military command centers, and simulation/visualization environments.
Although small in size – it occupies only 1RU of rack space, Cougar-3 is big on performance – supporting standard data rates from 50Mbps up to 3Gbps, and video transports up to 1080p/60. All inputs are auto-equalized; and with standard SMPTE formatted outputs, each signal is auto-sensed and re-clocked to the appropriate transport stream. Signals can be re-clocked up to 80m for 1080p/60. For non-standard formats, re-clocking circuitry can be set to by-pass mode. Two independent reference inputs allow easy selection of gen-lock from a black burst or tri-level sync source. The compact frame design features front load / hot swappable card sets and includes space for an optional redundant power supply and controller module. Cougar-3 provides control ports that allow configuring the frame for a variety of control interfaces including Ethernet control, RS-232/422, PESA’s P2K or 3500Pro, and PESA’s new QuView graphical user control interface; plus it can be used with PESA’s full range of control panels.
PESA’s QuView is an intuitive, easy to use GUI control system supporting the Cougar-3 as well as the full line of PESA router frames. It is installed on a host PC running the Windows® operating system and communicates via an Ethernet port located on each router. For large, high-speed digital interface switching systems, the QuView full-feature Control and Management software application supports comprehensive configuration, diagnostics and monitoring.

“Because of the small, compact size of the Cougar-3, it fits perfectly in small to mid-size venues where rack space for switching a large number of high definition signals is limited,? stated Keith Bond, Vice President of Product Management for PESA. “Additionally, the Cougar-3 offers a wide range of control features normally found in larger router systems making it perfect for editing and post production systems.?
