1x8 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI Distribution Amplifier with Reclocking

The S1208A 1x8 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI Distribution Amplifier with Reclocking receives one SDI input, perfectly duplicates it, and re-transmits eight SDI outputs for real time multi-viewing. It is a reliable video device splitting a SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, 6G-SDI, or 12G-SDI video source to eight SDI compliant displays at the same time.

  • 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI distribution
  • Eight separately buffered and reclocked outputs*
  • Cable equalization and signal retiming
  • LED indication of signal lock and video rate
  • Passes ancillary data and embedded audio
  • Provides automatic input cable equalization (Belden 1694A) up to 180m (594ft)@3G, 100m (330ft)@6G and 70m(230ft) @12G
  • Reclocking SDI signals for cascading and thus longer transmission
  • Inter-locked power supply for better fixedness
