3G HD-SDI 101 3G-SDI Cable Equalizer 60-963-01 Retired

This product has been retired.

The 3G HD-SDI 101 is a one-input, one-output cable equalizer for multi-rate SDI digital video signals. It offers a convenient, economical solution for sending multi-rate SDI digital video signals over long coaxial cable runs. The 3G HD-SDI 101 supports all common serial digital video data rates up to 2.97 Gbps, and also passes embedded audio and other ancillary data allowed by the SMPTE and ITU specifications. Automatic input equalization adds up to 500 feet (150 m) for SDI data rates, and up to 400 feet (120 m) for HD-SDI data rates including 3G-SDI video. The 3G HD-SDI 101 is housed in a one-eighth rack width, metal enclosure, providing integration-friendly mounting options into both new and existing AV systems.

The 3G HD-SDI 101 also features output reclocking, which reshapes and restores timing of digital video signals at the output, eliminating high frequency jitter and providing AV system designers with additional headroom when connecting multiple devices.
