5x1 HD/SD-SDI Switch - HD-5x1



This HD-5x1 receives, equalizes, and reclocks* up to 8 SDI inputs, perfectly switches the desired input to SDI equipped monitors or receivers. The switch supports both HD/SD-SDI bit rates, and the re-transmitted quality is guaranteed. Through RS-232, IR remote, or front panel push button, the control of the SDI switch becomes versatile and easier. HD-5x1 offers the most convenient and cost effective means for swift switch and duplication of high quality SDI in the market.
