DVD 5820 - 3Gbit Dual Channel SDI/ASI Distribution Amplifier

The DVD 5820 can be configured as a single channel 1>8 or dual channel 1>4 SDI distribution amplifier. Each channel can be set to reclocking or non-reclocking mode. This module is ideally suited for demanding digital multi-format broadcast and professional applications.


The module auto-detects the input video standard with support for all SDI video formats up to 3Gbit/s. In non re-clocked mode the module will transparently pass any data between 15Mbit/s and 3Gbit/s. Support for ASI/DVB and SMPTE 310 signals is also provided.


In 1>8 mode either input can be mapped to the 2 banks of 4 outputs. The optional mechanical relay will connect the inputs to one of the outputs in the event of a power failure.


Local settings are provided via an integrated dip switch on the card edge.


Remote control, status monitoring and error reporting is possible when using the LYNX control system.
