Cut sheets specifications Reference Manual


The DVD 5810 is a low cost fixed 1>8 utility distribution amplifier which can be used in a 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.

Local settings are provided via an integrated dip switch on the card edge. The optional mechanical relay will connect the input to one of the ouptuts in the event of a power failure.

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