Details

Distribute any analogue source

The VDA110M HD is a video distribution amplifier ideal for providing multiple outputs of any analogue source, with board edge control.

Use it to distribute your reference signals - either SD Black and Burst or HD tri-level syncs. Alternatively use it to distribute SD analogue composite and HD or SD analogue component video. Should you need to distribute RGB, YUV and Y/C video, multiple distribution amplifiers will be required (one for each component).

Get up to eleven outputs

The VDA110M HD gives a maximum of eleven analogue outputs or ten outputs with a loop-through.

It can be used with four different frame rear modules to give the perfect output combination for every application. Decide how many outputs you need and how many boards you'd like to fit in a frame, and then select the rear module that meets those criteria.

VDA110M HD inputs and outputs chart

The VDA110M HD can be used with the RM01 (five outputs), RM02 (eight outputs), RM16 (ten outputs with a loop-through) and RM18 (eleven outputs).

You won't lose your signals

You can use the VDA110M HD with either differential or non-differential inputs.

The passive loop-throughs are independent of the VDA110M HD, allowing you to remove the board without losing the looped-through source - and maybe your station syncs feed.

Maximise the quality of your signal

High quality equalisation will correct distortion to the analogue signal caused by up to 300m of cable length, making the board suitable for applications involving long cable runs.

It also features gain adjustments of +/-3dB.

Gain and equalisation can be controlled manually from board edge or by using GPIs.

Easy to install

Installing the VDA110M HD is made easy with the inclusion of an SD or HD present indication, while a video monitoring test point BNC at the board edge means a waveform monitor can be plugged straight into the board, facilitating signal monitoring during the setting up of the cable equalisation.

Always know what's happening

Troubleshooting is easy, with GPI and LED indication of input failure and loss of power.

Save rack space

What outputs do I get?

Signal inputs and outputs are accessed by using an appropriate rear module.

The rear modules slot on to the back of the frame and typically feature BNC, D-Type, 'easywire' DIN 41612, RJ45 and optical connectors. The single and double slot rear modules can be used with all three frame sizes, while the quad slot rear modules just fit the 2U frames.

There are four rear modules available for the VDA110M HD...
