Extron introduces new distribution amplifier
Extron Electronics has introduced the DA4 12G HDSDI, a compact four output distribution amplifier for multi-rate SDI digital video signals.
It supports all common serial digital video data rates up to 11.88 Gbps, while passing HDR, embedded audio, and other ancillary data allowed by the SMPTE and ITU standards. Automatic input cable equalisation adds up to 984 feet (300m) for SDI, 787 feet (240m) for HDSDI, 590 feet (180m) for 3G-SDI, 295 feet (90m) for 6G-SDI, and 230 feet (70m) for 12G-SDI digital video, when using RG6 cable.
Automatic output reclocking reshapes and restores signal timing at each output for added headroom when connecting multiple devices.
“The DA4 12G HD-SDI supports the latest SMPTE standards and compliments our growing 12G-SDI product line,” Extron vice president of sales and marketing Casey Hall says.
“Customers now have a convenient option for sending 4K capable, multi-rate SDI long distances to multiple locations in broadcast, production, medical imaging, and other demanding applications.”
The DA4 12G HD-SDI is housed in a quarter rack width, metal enclosure, providing integration-friendly mounting options into both new and existing AV systems.
