VM−8UX is a compact and high performance 1:8 4K distributor for standard broadcast−grade SDI signals of up to 12G transmitted data rate. It auto−adapts to data rate of one SDI input signal, equalizes and re−clocks the signal to improve transmitted signal reach, and distributes the signal to eight identical SDI outputs.
Reliable Wire Connectivity — Coaxial broadcast–grade cables are reliably connected via lockable BNC connectors, preventing unintentional wire disconnections, to gain fast and highly professional uncompressed SDI signals distribution deployments.
Extended–reach Input Extension — Input signal equalization and output signals reclocking to gain extended–reach signal extension. Using Kramer high–quality coaxial SDI cables, supports extension of up to 300m (984ft) for SD signals; 200m (656ft) for 1.5G HD signals; 100m (328ft) for 3G and 6G HD signals; 80m (260ft) for 12G 4K signals. Note: Reach depends on signal resolution, and quality of copper cable used. Reach extension performance may vary while using non–Kramer coaxial cables.
Transmitted Data Rate — Auto–adapting from 270Mbps to 12Gbps data rates.
Compliance — Complies with SMPTE 259M (SD–SDI), 292M (HD–SDI), 344M (ED–SDI), 424M (3G HD–SDI), ST–2081 (6G–SDI) and ST–2082 (12G–SDI) standards.
Max. Resolution — 4K@60Hz (4:2:2) 30bpp.
SDI Signal Transmission — SDI, HD–SDI, 3G HD–SDI, 6G and 12G SDI compliant signals, supporting pass–through of standard embedded audio channels with ancillary ID and metadata information.
LED Indicators — Status indicators for transmitted SDI data rate of input and output connected signals, and power indicator, for ease of maintenance and troubleshooting.
Easy Installation — Compact DigiTOOLS™ fan–less enclosure for small footprint spaces and over–ceiling mounting, or side–by–side rack mounting.
