VDA110M HD analogue video distribution amplifier
What is it?
HD/SD analogue video distribution amplifier with manual control.
Reason to choose it...
It's a cost-effective way to get up to eleven outputs. Plus you can use it to distribute any analogue source - whether HD or SD, video or reference.
Distribution of analogue video or reference in HD and SD environments where you don't need signal reporting. See who's using it.

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.
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
The 100mm x 266mm module fits in Crystal Vision's standard Indigo rack frames alongside any other products, allowing 12 boards in 2U, six in 1U or two in a desk top box.
The VDA110M HD is one of three analogue video distribution amplifiers from the Indigo range which allow the customer to get just the configuration and features they need.
