PESA Promotes Streaming Solutions, 4K Routing at IBC2014

Huntsville, Alabama – PESA, a leading designer and manufacturer of professional audio and video distribution solutions, will showcase its growing line of PESA Xstream streaming appliances, live production programmable remote control panels, and its new Cheetah 4K routers and field upgrade kits at IBC2014 (Hall 8, Stand C03), which runs Sept. 12-16 at Amsterdam RAI. The company will also demonstrate PESA Live, its new streaming app for Android and iOS smart devices, which allows users to manage their own viewing experience during an event with access to multiple live cameras and fully synchronized audio.

With an intuitive user interface, PESA Live makes it easy to select sources during a concert or sporting event, for example, while built-in social media functionalityallows users to interact in real time. Logos and other branding can be added to the video, and revenue generating ad insertion capabilities allow for targeted advertising and messaging. Content distribution options include local Wi-Fi or publishing to a content distribution network (CDN).

“PESA Live works in conjunction with our PESA Xstream C58 streaming appliance to provide an affordable way to enhance a live event with personalized video selection,” said John Naylor, vice president, global sales and distribution, streaming products. “Plus, stadiums and other venues can see an immediate ROI with its built-in ad insertion capabilities. Some high-level entertainment venues in the U.S. have already begun beta testing the system, and we are expecting even more interest at IBC.”

The new PESA Xstream C22 compact appliance, which will be demonstrated at IBC for the first time, includes I/O options for standalone streaming applications or as part of a larger hybrid broadcast system. The C22 can be configured as a two port video encoder or two port decoder, or can include one of each. It includes several video inputs as well as optional SFP modules allowing for expanded connectivity, and its two external audio sources can be synchronized to either or both video streams during an event.

With built-in frame sync, video signals can be locked to an external source for glitch-free video switching in broadcast and pro AV applications. An HDMI out allows for local preview, while an integrated Web server allows full remote control, so no personnel are required on site for streaming content to a production facility.

Multiple C22 units can be used to allow AV professionals to compress, stream and share high-quality content between locations and enable streaming in existing video distribution. The C22 is also an ideal bi-directional content sharing solution. Two C22 units can be configured with one encoder to send video and one decoder to receive video, allowing live interaction between sites.

PESA will also demonstrate its two advanced remote control panels designed for live production. The Touch72 LCD features 72 programmable LCD push button switches, along with a color touch-screen display, while the Smart32 features 32 dynamically reprogrammable LCD buttons arranged in a 2×16 configuration. Each push button can be customized by color with text and icon graphics through Cattrax, PESA’s management control software, and any switch can be configured as a source, destination, level, salvo, or control.

Built to manage the expanded bandwidth requirements of 4K signals, new PESA Cheetah routers are now available in multiple configurations. Both UHDTV (3840×2160) and DCI (4096×2160) are supported, and the router can mix and match between 4K CWDM and traditional copper or fiber I/O in the frame. Using PESA’s easyPORT converter module technology, each I/O card includes four SC-style fiber CWDM connections carrying up to 12 Gbps (4xSDI) for each port. An outboard easyPORT module converts the signals from each CWDM port on the router back to conventional HD/3G-SDI video lines.

Retrofit kits provide a simple plug-and-play upgrade solution for current 3G-SDI Cheetah routers. The 4K I/O card is a direct drop-in replacement for the standard 16-channel HD/3G-SDI card found in current Cheetah frames. Any size Cheetah 3G-SDI routing switcher can be retrofitted with the new Cheetah 4K I/O card system by replacing any existing 16-channel I/O card set and reconfiguring the software to accept the new 4K cards. Once the control software is configured for 4K, the router system can run both 4K and 3G-SDI signals in parallel.

“European interest in 4K continues to grow, and now PESA offers a full line of 4K routing solutions,” said Dewaine McClellan, international sales manager. “New Cheetahs can be dedicated 4K routers or partitioned and converted later as your 4K needs grow. You can also retrofit existing Cheetah routers in the field to support your move to a 4K infrastructure.”

Cheetah 4K routers can be configured and controlled via PESA’s intuitive Cattrax network GUI or optional Cattrax Web network server software using PESA’s powerful PERC2000 or PERC3000 system controller hardware. They can also be controlled through traditional RS-232/422 or Ethernet connections, and built-in SNMP MIB simplifies integration to third-party network system management software. With hot swappable matrix and I/O cards, as well as internal power and control, the need for additional power and external cabling is virtually eliminated.

Also in the auditorium, engineers will use the TouchMonitor TM7 (HW 20711), that is connected to the control surface of the Cadac console, this will help to provide accurate monitoring of the cinema system feeds.

Meanwhile, the IBC News crew will make use of several TouchMonitor TM3 audio meters. These will be used in the different production areas of IBC News and were chosen to be an important element in controlling and verifying levels.

The IBC Big Screen Experience is the ultimate showcase that demonstrates how the disciplines between cinema and traditional broadcast are merging. For the full IBC Big Screen Experience programme of events, click here.
