Small Tree Features 24 Port 10 Gigabit Copper Video Editing Switch at Infocomm 2012

Small Tree introduces its ST10G-28Cat6, a 24 port 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch offering video editors the ability to support 10 Gigabit Networks without needing expensive optics and cabling, at Infocomm 2012 (Booth C5654 – Technologies for Worship pavilion). Leading experts in Mac OS X technology and converged networking, Small Tree is bringing two technologies together to allow fast, low latency storage protocols to run over Ethernet. The company’s newest offering enables businesses to effectively migrate to the latest in 10 Gb technology significantly increasing their workflows due to the increased video streams being supported.

Optimized for video editing and providing “no compromise” performance, the ST10G-28Cat6 is an advanced system featuring Layer 2 switching, IP v4/v6 routing, QoS support and management capabilities. The system is built for superior flexibility, enabling RJ45 copper connectivity to 10GE or
1 GE networks in addition to providing 4 ports 10GE or 1 GE enabling support of multi-mode or single mode fiber media connectivity via SFP+ or SFP connectors. With this new switch, which includes Small Tree’s proprietary, state-of-the-art network engineering, video editors can edit Pro Res 4444, uncompressed and 2k over affordable, ubiquitous Ethernet.

“Customers have been waiting for the arrival of 10GE copper switches to minimize their investment to make the leap to 10GE,” said Corky Seeber, president of Small Tree. “With the strict budgetary restrictions churches and universities typically face, Small Tree’s 24 port switch allows a seamless and cost-effective shift to 10GE.”

New PESA PRO AV Router Switcher Offers Internal Power, Optional Pushbutton Control

Huntsville, Alabama – PESA, a leading U.S.-based custom design and build manufacturing company for professional audio and video signal distribution, recently expanded its PESA PRO line of professional AV routers with the new PRO-3GSDI-1616 Routing Switcher. It supports all common SMPTE and ITU standard serial digital video signals, as well as embedded audio and other ancillary data required for HD-SDI and DVB/ASI sources. The new router will be featured at InfoComm 2012 (Booth N1327), which runs June 13-15 in Las Vegas, Nev.

Positioned at a more competitive price point, the PESA PRO line includes several new features that make it attractive for small to mid-sized video switching environments. The product line is ideal 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.

Two models are available: the PRO-3GSDI-1616-C and the PRO-3GSDI-1616-PB, which includes a local pushbutton control panel. Both models feature an internal power supply and can have multiple remote control panels added via an Ethernet interface.

The PRO-3GSDI-1616 supports standard data rates from 50Mbps to 3Gbps and video transports up to 1080p/60. All inputs are auto-equalized. For digital cinema high definition video distribution requirements, it can be configured to switch SMPTE 372M dual-link HD-SDI in configurations up to 8×8.

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 100m for 1080p/60. For non-standard formats, re-clocking circuitry can be set to bypass mode. Two independent reference inputs allow easy selection of genlock from a black burst or tri-level sync source.

The PRO-3GSDI-1616’s compact 1 RU frame design features front load, hot swappable card sets, and includes space for an optional redundant power supply and controller module. It is also compatible with PESA’s Cattrax™ graphical user control interface, which supports comprehensive configuration, diagnostics, and monitoring of the full line of PESA router frames. The software is installed on a host PC running the Windows® operating system and communicates via an Ethernet port located on each router.

The PRO-3GSDI-1616 has an MSRP of $5,995 and is available now.

Lightware’s 25G Hybrid Matrix Will Take the Matrix Switch to the Third Dimension at INFOCOMM 2012

Lightware U.S.A. will unveil its groundbreaking 25G Hybrid Matrix router at INFOCOMM 2012 in Las Vegas, NV, June 13-15. The company will have the product on hand at its booth, N669, as well as providing an in-depth overview of the system for press and attendees on June 14 at 10:00 AM in Room N207.

With its 25G Hybrid Matrix Lightware reinvents the meaning of the matrix switch. Until now systems have operated in two dimensions, with inputs and outputs. But Lightware has now added a third dimension – media layers – and set a new standard for the AV industry.

Lightware’s new system is not only a matrix, but a complete signal architecture: a cloud that supports eight media layers: video, audio, Ethernet, USB KVM, USB 2.0, IR, RS-232 and CEC channels. All layers are supported by 25G Hybrid signal management; inside the cloud all the layers are independent for switching and extending all signal layers separately.

25G Hybrid signal architecture allows video, audio and media layers to be transmitted over a single fiber or one CAT5 cable so AV professionals can build a very simple system, which still supports all eight media layers. The 25G Hybrid Matrix has 160 inputs and 160 outputs and a total throughput of 4TB per second. It offers exceptional 25 gigabits per second data rate switching for transporting next generation video signals, such as HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort 1.2, and handling all future video and audio standards, including 4K resolution and stereo 3D formats.

Each video port is equipped with a separate audio input and output connector forming a 320×320 S/P/DIF crosspoint switch. It manages stereo and multichannel audio as well as high bitrate formats like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. Optional multichannel to stereo downmixing is available.

25G Hybrid technology is more than just a switcher, however. As a comprehensive line of digital matrix switchers, transmitters and receivers, 25G Hybrid combines switching with a powerful suite of diagnostic software tools for the digital age, delivering a superior user experience.

LECTROSONICS DEPLOYED AT LOUISIANA STATE EMPLOYEES RETIREMENT SYSTEM

**** Photo: Greg Byrd, IT Manager of LASERS ****

Baton Rouge, LA – May 2012… Managing the operation of a conference center’s audio system is generally not part of the average business person’s ‘technical repertoire,’ which is precisely why so many such facilities have on-site A/V technicians / operators. But for the Louisiana State Employees Retirement System, an easy-to-manage sound reinforcement setup was mandated as part of the design and installation requirements for the organization’s board room and conference facilities. After carefully evaluating the requirements of the project, Baton Rouge, LA-based Technical Services Group (TSG) deployed an ASPEN processor setup from Lectrosonics. more
