The BG-DA-12GS1X4 is a 1x4 12G-SDI splitter and distribution amplifier. This device can split an SD, HD, 3G, 6G, or 12G-SDI video source up to four SDI outputs simultaneously. For any situation where range, quality, consistency, and reliability are all factors, this unit is the correct choice. Whether you need to connect additional displays for video feed monitoring, distribute a 4K signal over a long distance, or daisy chain and cascade multiple units to build a large scale video distribution solution - the BG-DA-12GS1X4 will help you get the job done.
Connectivity and Features
Each output from the BG-DA-12GS1X4 is buffered independently and re-clocked eliminating signal disruption and making it possible to extend signal transmission to greater distances. With automatic input cable equalization, 12G-SDI signal can be transmitted up to 70m (230 ft), 6G up to 100m (330 ft), and up to 180m (594 ft) for 3G connections.
The device has a maximum SDI bandwidth of 11.88 Gbps to support high quality video transmission with low latency when splitting video to multiple outputs. Installers can also utilize the device’s LED indicators that show the status of signal lock and current video rate to reduce the amount of time system configuration is needed.
The device’s design is built around quality and durability. With an inter-locking power supply and SDI connectors as well as a metal housing with mounting brackets, this device is built to last while maintaining reliable video transmission.
