Sneak Peek: Ultra HD 12G-SDI distribution amplifier

We have spent the last couple of weeks testing prototypes of our new Ultra HD distribution amplifier, which is looking absolutely fantastic. The DA can handle pretty much anything you can throw at it, including SD, HD, 3G, 6G and 12G-SDI, DVB-ASI and even MADI audio!


This is a great piece of kit that should be on every broadcast engineers wish list. Any time you need to split, distribute or extend an SDI signal this little guy will do the business.

Going the Distance with SDI

It would be easy to fall into the trap of thinking we could simply replace our SD equipment with HD or Ultra HD equivalents and keep all our cabling infrastructure the same, but in practice it is not always so simple. As video resolution has increased from SD to HD to UltraHD, the SDI bit rate has increased dramatically from 270 Mb/s to 11.88 Gb/s, which in turn places increased demands on the cabling infrastructure that we use. In practical terms this greatly reduces the cable lengths that can be used, and some older or lower cost cables may not be usable at all.
