500VMDA

SDI Monitoring Reclocking Distribution Amplifier

  • VistaLINK® enabled

The Evertz 500VMDA Reclocking Distribution Amplifier provides inexpensive distribution and monitoring of your SMPTE ST 259 (270Mb/s) serial digital video signal.

The DA features an auto-equalized input with nine outputs that can be selected as either SDI or composite analog. The 500VMDA in conjuction with the 7812DCDA2Q gives an upgrade path to monitoring future HD-SDI signals without having to rewire your installation.

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

Features
  • Fully hot-swappable from front of frame with no BNC disconnect required
  • Tally output on Frame Status bus upon loss of input signal
  • VistaLINK® capable for remote monitoring via SNMP (using VistaLINK® PRO) when installed in 500FR frame with 500FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller
  • Selectable NTSC pedestal on/off
  • Passes embedded audio to SD-SDI output
  • Card Edge LED's
  • Reclocker Locked
  • Max. Equalization Warning
  • Module Health Status
  • Video present, cable length warning, and video standard LEDs
  • Input
  • Supports SMPTE ST 259-C (270Mb/s) video with embedded audio
  • Outputs
  • 9 outputs selectable as SD-SDI or composite analog (NTSC/PAL)
  • Independent isolated output drivers to ensure no cross channel leading effects (i.e. no need to terminate unused outputs)
  • Selectable NTSC pedestal on/off
  • Passes embedded audio to SD-SDI output
