500DA2Q-AESU

Dual Unbalanced AES Audio Distribution Amplifier

  • VistaLINK® enabled

The 500DA2Q-AESU provides an economical method of distribution for your AES digital audio signals. The DA's feature two auto-equalized inputs with four re-clocked outputs each. The module can also be configured for one input with eight reclocked outputs for applications where a larger number of outputs is required.

The 500DA2Q-AESU is housed in the 3RU 500FR exponent frame that will hold up to 16 modules.

Features
  • Supports SMPTE ST 276 standard for AES audio on 75Ω coax
  • 2 independent distribution amplifiers with 4 reclocked outputs provides jitter reduction
  • Can be configured as one 8 output distribution amplifier
  • Automatic equalization provides extended cable length capabilities
  • Tally output of input error conditions
  • VistaLINK® capable for remote monitoring via SNMP (using VistaLINK® PRO) when installed in 500FR frame with 500FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller
