PESA, the routing solutions specialists provided a variety of broadcasters with international delivery of audio and video from the 2006 Winter Games in Torino this month.
Example 1, FRAME, based in Padua as an operator of a fleet of OB vans for hire in southern Europe. PESA said Chief Engineer Andrea Gianolli selected the PESA Cheetah SD-HD multirate router. The 128x128 router is capable of simultaneously handling SDI and HDTV signals from the International Broadcast Centre as well as the production group's own sources. The FRAME OB van was engineered and built by Professional Show of Milan under the guidance of Systems Engineer Paolo Artuso.
Example 2, European Broadcast Union (EBU) has been using a PESA Tiger router regularly for major sporting events, upgrading the system routinely so that this year's coverage was supported by a fully populated Tiger SDI router with a companion audio router and a large quantity of RCP-PVPG control panels, each of which was designed specifically for the EBU.
PESA said the customized PESA control panels allow an operator to select one of up to eight sources with a single key press and then take the source to air by pressing a single control panel key.
PESA, part of the Canadian QuStream group of companies is a leading provider of analog and digital video and audio equipment for broadcast applications.
