PESA Unveils HDcctv-Compliant Routing Switcher at InfoComm 2012

Designed specifically for the HD CCTV market, it is fully compliant with the HDcctv Alliance™ high definition video interface standard for security and surveillance systems.

June 7th, 2012


Huntsville, Alabama - PESA, a leading U.S.-based custom design and build manufacturing company for professional audio and video signal distribution, will introduce its new HDcctv 32×16 routing switcher at InfoComm 2012 (Booth N1327), which runs June 13-15 in Las Vegas, Nev.Designed specifically for the HD CCTV market, it is fully compliant with the HDcctv Alliance™ high definition video interface standard for security and surveillance systems.

Using a single RG-59 coax cable for each port, users can connect up to 32 HDcctv-compliant video cameras to the PESA HDcctv matrix switch and output up to 16 individual coax connections for HDcctv DVR or display devices. Unlike IP-based switches and hubs using a distributed 10 Gbps backbone, the HDcctv 32×16 allocates a dedicated 1.5 Gbps transport for each device connected to the router.

All inputs are auto-equalized and outputs reclocked to transmit 720p25/30, 720p50/60, or 1080p25/30 video resolutions up to 300 feet. Two independent reference inputs allow easy selection of genlock from black burst or a tri-level sync source.

"Today's video security customers are looking to upgrade their legacy CCTV systems to high-quality video imaging components," said Dan Holland, PESA vice president of product marketing. "HDcctv products, such as our new 32×16 matrix switch, allow system installers a quick and easy way of expanding security system performance without compromising on image quality, worrying about IP video latency, or spending hours learning how to setup a network management system. HDcctv works just like traditional analog CCTV systems, but offers high definition video performance at a cost effective price point."

Housed in a compact 1 RU frame with a front load, hot-swappable matrix card, the HDcctv 32×16 offers an optional redundant power supply and control card. It provides control interfaces for PESA's Ethernet control system or can be configured to support many third-party control systems. Plus, theHDcctv 32×16 supports an optional local pushbutton control panel, up to 80 remote control panels, or control via a unique PESA software-based soft-panel.

Founded in 2009, the nonprofit HDcctv Alliance develops and manages the technical interface specification for HDcctv, which was developed from broadcast industry standards and specialized for surveillance needs. The industry association promotes the adoption of HDcctv-compliant products and provides education for equipment manufacturers and their customers. The world's first HDcctv-compliant routing switcher, the HDcctv 16×16, was introduced by PESA in late 2011.
