Lyon Video taps Qustream routers, converters for new truck

Lyon Video
has purchased QuStream products for their latest high-definition (HD) broadcast
production truck. This new 53-foot mobile broadcast facility will feature
recent additions to the QuStream product line, including Cheetah 288×576
routers, and the UDC Up/Down/Cross Converter.

Final equipment decisions for the rest of the truck are currently being
completed.

“We
evaluated the top routing manufacturers in the market and found the QuStream
equipment to be the most advanced and flexible for our needs,” said Robert
Lyon, president of Lyon Video. “QuStream has proven to be the leading supplier
of routing, control, and processing in the mobile production market and we are
excited to use their equipment in this new truck.”

Lyon Video’s new HD truck incorporates QuStream’s internal fiber I/O cards to
tie two video frames together via fiber lines. This arrangement provides
optimal weight reduction on frame size and coax cabling.

“We are
pleased that Lyon Video chose QuStream to equip its new mobile production
truck,” said Bob McAlpine, vice president of sales and marketing
communications. “Because of our versatile and reliable solutions, QuStream high
definition video and audio systems continue to be the choice for mobile
applications.”

The Cheetah 288×576 provides a large number of outputs to handle large monitor
walls for broadcast and mobile applications, or applications that feed a large
number of devices concurrently, in only 18RU. The Cheetah routers use
standard-size BNC connectors, internal redundant power, redundant frame and
system controllers, and have the ability to mix copper, fiber and CWDM fiber
all in the same frame.
