500DA-3G

3G/HD/SD-SDI Reclocking Distribution Amplifier (1x8)

  • VistaLINK® enabled
  • 3Gb/s enabled

The 500DA-3G reclocking distribution amplifier provides inexpensive distribution of your SMPTE 424M, SMPTE ST 292-1 and SMPTE ST 259-1 serial digital video signals at rates of 3GB/s, 1.5GB/s and 270MB/s. The DA supports all other all other SMPTE ST 344-1, SMPTE ST 259-1, SMPTE ST 310-1 and DVB-ASI data rates in a non-reclocked mode (540MB/s, 360MB/s, 143Mbs/, 19.4MB/s).

Ideal in applications where a large quantity of outputs are required, the DA features an auto-equalized input with eight isolated reclocked outputs.

The 500DA-3G can be housed in the 3RU 500FR frame which has a 16 slot capacity.

Features
  • Normal reclocked mode for SMPTE ST 424 (3GB/s), SMPTE ST 292-1 (1.5GB/s) and SMPTE ST 259-1 (270MB/s)
  • Jumper selectable non-reclocked mode for all other SMPTE ST 344-1, SMPTE ST 259-1, SMPTE ST 310-1 and DVB-ASI data rates
  • Fully hot-swappable from front of frame with no BNC disconnect required
  • Independent isolated output drivers to ensure no cross channel loading effects (ie. no need to terminate unused outputs)
  • Outputs maintain polarity from input to output for DVB-ASI applications
  • Tally output on Frame Status bus upon loss of input signal for quality monitoring
  • VistaLINK®-capable for remote monitoring via SNMP (using VistaLINK® PRO) when installed in 500FR frame with 500FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller
  • Input
  • SMPTE ST 424 (3GB/s), SMPTE ST 292-1 (1.5GB/s), SMPTE ST 259-1 (270MB/s) when re-clocking
