When HD video distribution over distances of the order of 150 - 500m is required, a more economical solution to fibre is to use a simple data re-clocker. This reliably restores the ‘quality’ of the serial digital signal to the point where it can be sent over another 200m of cable before either reaching it’s destination or being re-generated by another re-clocker unit.
The Camera Corps multi-rate re-clocker can be used to re-clock any serial digital SD or HD signal. Two re-clocked outputs are provided and operation is fully automatic with auto selection of any input data rate from 143Mb/s to 2.97Gb/s. The unit operates from any DC power input from 9-18v consuming just 1.5watts. A 5volt DC power input is also available as an option.
