PESA's CAT PAWS offer affordable A/V distribution on existing networks

PESA Switching Systems has introduced its new CAT PAWS twisted pair RGBHV transmitter and receiver.
Able to drive an SXGA signal over CAT-5 cable as far as 450 feet (135 meters) with perfect reproduction, PESA's CAT PAWS take advantage of existing network infrastructures and serves as the perfect solution for sports bars, airports, hotels, auditoriums, courthouses, and electronic signage.
Recommended for use with either commercial-grade CAT-5/5e/6 or non-skew unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable designed specifically for video applications, CAT PAWS are designed with internal skew compensation to accommodate longer runs with less-expensive UTP cable. Also, instead of forcing the sync signals through the cable, the unit analyses the incoming signal, converts it at the transmitter, and reconstructs it as a true sync signal at the receiver.
"Skew compensation is a major issue in computer video transmission over CAT-5 cable," said Bob McAlpine, PESA's senior vice president of sales and marketing. "Most computer VGA cards are only designed to drive the signal a few feet, which creates impedance mismatch over long cable runs. With our CAT PAWS, we're able to provide excellent overall fidelity even over extended distances while utilizing a facility's existing network."
The CP450TX and CP450RX CAT PAW modules come with an RJ-45 connector and an HD-15 connector for RGBHV sources, and have an LED signal indicator and external power pack. Their small footprint and low weight allow the modules to fit just about anywhere, either rack-mounted or as stand-alone throw-down units. Optional receivers are available for 1000-foot and 1500-foot uses.
CAT PAWS support video resolutions of up to SXGA (1280x1024 at 75-Hz) with an impedance of 75 Ohms. Both the CP450TX and CP450RX have met the CE and FCC approvals.
The new CAT PAWS product family will be on display at the PESA stand, 2.124, at IBC2004.
