Extron FOX DA8 Plus

Eight-Output Fiber Optic Distribution Amplifier: Configurable for Maximum Flexibility

The Extron FOX DA8 Plus is a configurable eight-output distribution amplifier for long haul transmission of AV and control signals over fiber optic cabling. For maximum flexibility, it is configurable as a single 8-output distribution amplifier or as two 4-output or four 2-output distribution amplifiers. It features high-speed, all digital signal transmission of pixel-perfect DVI, RGB, HD component video, S-video, composite video, 3G-SDI, audio, and control signals. To maintain signal integrity, the distribution amplifier provides output reclocking and active signal splitting, transmitting output signals at the original power levels. In addition, the FOX DA8 Plus includes integrator-friendly features such as the ability to mute one or more outputs, rack-mount capability, and compatibility with Extron FOX Series products. These many features, including the capability of configuring the unit as multiple independent distribution amplifiers, make the FOX DA8 Plus ideal for applications that require long haul distribution of fiber optic AV and control signals from up to four locations.

Key Features
