QuStream announces Cheetah V5-DVI modules
Ontario -QuStream Corporation announces the Cheetah V5-DVI, a compact modular system enabling long distance delivery of DVI and VGA component video, and
stereo audio over a single optical fiber or coaxial cable. Cheetah V5-DVI
modules can be used as stand-alone devices or up to four can be mounted in a 1
RU frame with integral cooling system and power distribution. The V5-DVI is optimized for easy interfacing to any of
QuStream’s Cheetah range of routers, providing the capability of DVI routing.
QuStream Cheetah V5-DVI modules are available with inbuilt support for both
multimode and single mode cable, offering the user a signal range of up to 6
miles (10 km) when using single mode fiber. Single origination point to single
destination point systems can be configured using one transmit and one receive module. Distributed signal processing allows
Cheetah V5 transmit and receive modules to be located next to the sending and
DVI video with embedded audio can be transmitted through Cheetah V5 DVI modules
at 1.485 Gbit/s, allowing data to pass through HD- SDI routers without
additional processing. Cheetah V5-DVI modules can be incorporated with a
routing switcher for signal delivery to a network of signal origination and destination
points. The signal is compatible with the entire Cheetah range of routing
QuStream’s processing technology supports video sources of DVI single link and
VGA (RGBHV) at resolution up to 1920 x 1200 pixels, both at 60 Hz refresh rate.
Computer video signals can be delivered as VGA to VGA, DVI to DVI, DVI to VGA,
and VGA to DVI. In addition, every Cheetah V5 DVI module provides 48 kHz stereo
audio processing. The Cheetah V5-DVI can be connected to a VGA source via an
HD-15 to DVI-I adapter. Coax modules are optimized for use with 1694A coaxial
cable or equivalent.
An integral USB 2.0 port allows easy set-up of each Cheetah V5-DVI module using
a host computer running the supplied graphic user interface software. Local
monitoring at the signal origination point can be achieved using looping
outputs provided on transmitter modules for both audio and video (DVI or VGA).
