Delivers Future-proof Support for 3 Gb/sec. and Backward Compatibility to SD and HD-SDI
PYROÃ‚ ® AV, the new Broadcast Solutions Division of ADS Tech, announced at NAB today the 3G14DA Triple-rate 4-port Distribution Amplifier (DA). The 3G14DA is the first product in PYRO AVÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new 3G family of solutions for broadcast and professional media producers. The 3G distribution amplifier will be showcased this week at the ADS Tech/PYRO AV NAB Booth #SL7910. By designing in triple-rate convenience, PYRO AV provides their 3G DA customers with backward compatibility and support for SD-SDI (270 Mb/sec.) and HD-SDI (1.5 Gb/sec.) in addition to 3 Gb./sec data rates. Ã¢â‚¬Å“This means youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re future-proofed,Ã¢â‚¬ said Mike McCoy, president of ADS Tech. Ã¢â‚¬Å“You may not be running 3 Gb/sec. today, but you probably will in the future. Your investment in the 3G14DA ensures the highest quality for todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s SD/HD-SDI projects and compatibility for tomorrow.Ã¢â‚¬ The 3G14DA supports resolutions up to 1920 x 1080p 60 over a single coax cable. To enhance productivity, it automatically detects the signal speed and resolution of the incoming video signal and distributes pristine broadcast-quality video over the four output ports without having to adjust dip switches or user settings. Individual Ã¢â‚¬Å“signal presentÃ¢â‚¬ LEDÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s display the locked SDI rate (270 MB, 1.5 Gb/sec and 3 Gb/sec.). In addition to providing cable equalization to restore SDI signals with data rates ranging from 143 MB/sec. to 2.97 Gb/sec.over a 70 Ã¢â€ž ¦ coax cable, the 3G14DA is designed to recover the embedded clock, re-time the clock signal and remove high-frequency jitter from SMPTE 424M, 292M and 259M-c compliant digital video signals. The signal is then output through high-quality cable drivers for each output port to ensure SMPTE-compliant SDI video output up to 2.97 Gb/sec. Featuring a streamlined low-profile design (about 4Ã¢â‚¬ x3Ã¢â‚¬ x1Ã¢â‚¬ ), the PYRO AV 3G Distribution Amplifier is protected by an exceptionally rugged cast aluminum enclosure with steel end plates. With the steel locking power connector outside and the solid-state circuitry inside, this device is designed to last a lifetime in the studio or on the road. PYRO AVÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 3G14DA Triple-rate 4-port Distribution Amplifier will be available in May.
Ready to use right out of the box, the 3G Distribution Amplifier includes a 5 VDC Power Supply with a Locking Connector as well as Velcro strips and rack mounting screws for easy mounting, and a user guide. Like all of ADS Tech PYRO AV brand solutions, the 3G Distribution Amplifier is backed by a 5-year warranty.
