4 Output 12G-SDI Video Distribution Amplifier

Product thumbnail

Matrix Switch Corporation distribution amplifiers combine exceptional performance with value. Their compact size allows for them to be utilized in space constrained situations and all external connections are on the same side making for a clean installation.

The MSC-UHDA4 employs Auto Rate Detection for standard 12G, 6G, 3G, 1.5G and SD data rates, with "Power OK", "Lock" and "HD" indicators. The MSC-UHDA4 includes a 5V external power supply, but will operate over a wide input range of 3V to 18V DC, drawing less than 100mA at 12VDC.

  • Re-clocks standard SDI rates 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD (11.88 / 5.94 / 2.97 / 1.485 / 0.270 Gbit/s)
  • Auto bypass of non-standard SDI rates from 20 Mbit/s to 12 Gbit/s
  • Passes SDI embedded audio and ancillary data
  • Complies with all relevant FCC, U/L, CE, and RoHS requirements
  • Backed by a full 2 year manufacturer parts and labor warranty
