PESA Introduces World’s First HDcctv-Compliant Routing Switcher

HDcctv 16X16 Routing Switcher

Compact 1RU HDcctv 16X16 Routing Switcher

Huntsville, Alabama – December 27, 2011 – PESA® today unveiled the new 16X16 PESA HDcctv Routing Switcher, the world’s first HDcctv routing switcher with full compliance to the HDcctv Alliance™ high-definition video interface standard for security and surveillance systems. With just a single RG-59 coax cable for each port, users can connect up to 16 HDcctv-compliant video cameras to the PESA HDcctv Routing Switcher and output up to 16 individual coax connections for HDcctv DVR or display devices. Designed specifically for high-definition video over coax, PESA’s new 16X16 HDcctv Routing Switcher features a compact 1RU enclosure, local or remote network control options and a redundant power supply and control card option.

“The PESA HDcctv Routing Switcher is the ultimate interface where multiple HDcctv cameras and DVR’s need to be shared or switched in the best quality format available,” said Dan Holland, PESA’s Vice President of Product Marketing. “HDcctv is based on proven uncompressed high definition video technology so there is no need to compromise quality or worry about dropped packets, latency, or bandwidth allocation issues normally found with IP based technology.”

With a compact frame design, the PESA HDcctv Routing Switcher uses full uncompressed video technology to distribute brilliant high resolution images from devices as far away as 100m over traditional RG-59 coax cable. With the 1.5Gbps enabled transport for each port, video resolutions for 720p and 1080p are evenly distributed without compression. Unlike IP-based switches and hubs using distributed 10Gbps backbone, PESA’s HDcctv Routing Switcher allocates a dedicated 1.5Gbps for each device connected to the router. In aggregate comparison to IP solutions, PESA’s 16X16 HDcctv compliant routing system provides over 24Gbps of non-blocking, non-compressed video switching.

Based on the HDcctv Alliance standard, all inputs are auto-equalized and outputs reclocked to transmit 720p25/30, 720p50/60, or 1080p25/30 video resolutions distances up to 100m (300ft). Two independent reference inputs allow easy selection of gen-lock from black burst or a tri-level sync source. The frame assembly features a front load / hot swappable matrix card and includes space for an optional redundant power supply and control module. Each HDcctv Routing Switcher provides control interfaces for PESA’s Ethernet control system or can be configured to support many third-party control systems. Additionally, the PESA HDcctv Routing Switcher easily supports an optional local pushbutton control panel, up to 80 remote control panels, or control via a unique PESA soft-panel – a software emulated version of control panels.

With almost four decades of proven technology development in high-quality broadcast switching products, PESA continues to be an innovative provider of future-proof video distribution product solutions. The PESA 16X16 HDcctv Routing Switcher is the world’s first fully compliant HDcctv Matrix Switch and PESA’s roadmap includes several other HDcctv matrix and signal processing devices to be introduced in 2012.

As customers analyze ever larger amounts of video data and need to derive more value and ROI from their investment in video security and surveillance equipment, the HDcctv standard continues to deliver cost-effective, full uncompressed video solutions for users looking to upgrade legacy CCTV systems or design new greenfield megapixel IP video systems.

”The enormous market opportunity for uncompressed HD surveillance video over coax is increasingly widely recognized in the security industry,” observed Todd Rockoff, executive director of HDcctv Alliance. “Realization of that market opportunity requires multi-vendor/brand compatibility, which is ensured by compliance with the HDcctv standard. By delivering the world’s first HDcctv-compliant matrix switch, PESA has contributed a critical component for enterprise-class HDcctv-based surveillance systems.”

About HDcctv Alliance
HDcctv Alliance® is the non-profit industry association that develops and promulgates the global specification for high-definition closed-circuit television (HDcctv). The V1.0 HDcctv specification is derived from broadcast industry standards for 100% digital serial transmission of uncompressed video over coaxial cable. However, HDcctv is planned to also transmit video over various media (including optical fiber and Cat5), and the HDcctv standard optimizes the interface to meet the needs of the surveillance market. The Alliance promotes industry adoption of HDcctv technology, and it provides education both to the surveillance equipment industry and to equipment buyers. HDcctv-compliant products bear the distinctive HDcctv logo that guarantees transmission distance and interoperability with other HDcctv-compliant products. The Alliance also offers an HDcctv Certificate for video surveillance system designers, installers, and dealers through an education program. An up-to-date list of HDcctv-compliant Products and Certified HDcctv Professionals is maintained at www.highdefcctv.org.
