SIERRA VIDEO OFFERS AES DIGITAL AUDIO ON BNC CONNECTORS
GRASS VALLEY, CA – October 6, 2008 – Sierra Video, a leading provider of high-quality video and audio equipment for the broadcast, government, and professional video marketplaces, announced today that it has begun offering AES digital audio available on BNC connectors in addition to traditional terminal block connectors in two of its routing switcher families.

The unbalanced BNC connectors will initially be offered in 16x16 Lassen Routing Switchers and 16x16 Sierra NLE Routing Switchers with 75 Ohm AES digital audio. This option will be an alternative to balanced terminal block connectors and will provide customers with additional choices in signal routing configurations. The BNC connector option is particularly well-suited for customers running coaxial cable throughout their installations.

The BNC connector option will be available at no additional cost and priced the same as AES on terminal block connectors. Additional information on Lassen Routing Switchers and Sierra NLE Routing Switchers is available at www.sierravideo.com.
