12G-SDI 4 distribution splitter (distributor)

Model number: VPUS-SS1

SKU 4562393848592 Category

70m extension of 12G-SDI signal

・With a 12G-SDI compatible L-5.5CUHD equivalent cable, it is possible to extend 70m for pathological signals and 80m for color bar signals. ・L-5CFB used for 3G/HD-SDI has been verified up to 60m with pathological/color bar signals.

12G-SDI can be distributed to 4 (reclock is always enabled)

・12G-SDI signal can be reclocked and distributed to 4 ・Supports 4 distribution of 6G-SDI/3G-SDI/HD-SDI/SD-SDI /DVB-ASI signals

Hirose Electric’s BNC75 series 12G-SDI compatible receptacle is used for the BNC connector.

Windows utility software for VideoPro 4K series. VPUS-SR1 and VPUS-SS1 are connected to a Windows PC with a USB Mini-B cable. Since it is recognized as an HID device, it can be used without installing a driver, just like the conventional BoxCenter. Please connect only one unit.
Note: VPUS-SR1 and VPUS-SS1 cannot detect the resolution and frame rate of the input format on BoxCenter Pro due to the characteristics of the device used, 12G-SDI, 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, SD- It is detected in the form of SDI.

*In the case of the conventional product VPS-SS2, it was possible to display the input resolution and frame rate, but this product only supports format display such as 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD.

・12G-SDI can be extended. ・Evaluated up to 2 stages with a cable equivalent to L-5.5CUHD ・ Recommended distribution up to 16 branches in total of 2 units

*1 It depends on the performance of the connected device, so we recommend checking the connection with a demo machine in advance.

*1 Please evaluate with the actual machine and adjust the cable length because it will be connected to other company’s equipment.
