QuStream routing installed in Newest NMT Trucks
QuStream Corporation announced that in September, 2006 National
Mobile Television (NMT) has selected QuStream to provide PESA audio and video
routing equipment for its newest production truck series. This order is valued at approximately US$1.7
NMT will be installing the Cheetah DRS distributed Audio
router configured 1472 x 1728 as well as two Cheetah video routers, configured
304 X 304 and 672 X 848 framed in PESA s new 864XR 41RU single chassis. The order also includes the Cheetah
integrated CWDM fiber units to allow easy setup and communication between the
three trucks that make up this production unit.
PESA s overall unique router technology made a compelling
case for us to choose them for our newest production trucks, said John Kemps,
Vice President of Engineering at NMT. We
needed the maximum amount of crosspoints in the smallest space possible and
PESA s new Cheetah 864XR routing switcher gave us exactly the size we needed
with up to 864X864 in only 41RU. In addition, the CWDM fiber mux and demux
cards integrated directly into the Cheetah allowed us to carry 16 lines over 1
fiber channel reducing the weight of our trucks and permitting easier setup. The distributed architecture of the DRS
audio routing system requires minimal space for major audio routing in the
space we choose continued Mr. Kemps.
We are extremely pleased by the overwhelming and positive
responses received for our leading-edge products from mobile production companies,
said Frederick L. Godard, Chairman, President and CEO of QuStream. This is the first time we have sold our
routing equipment to NMT and look forward to establishing a long-term
relationship with them.
