General Information

Hamlet is very pleased to offer this exceptional range of extremely high quality products. MSC is founded on high reliability and high performance. Hamlet are master distributors in the UK and Europe (excluding Switzerland, Germany and Austria) region.

The MSC HD / SDI distribution amplifiers combine exceptional performance with value. The compact size of these distribution amplifiers allows them to be located in spaces where rack space is limited.

The MSC-HDDA4 and MSC-HDDA16 include 143MBPS, 270MBPS / 1.484GBPS Auto Rate Detection with "Power OK", "Lock" and "HD" indicators. The MSC-HDDA4G3 and MSC-HDDA16G3 add 2.97GBPS 1080P 60Hz to the Auto Rate Detection system.

The MSC-AES/SPDIF4 is specifically designed for 75 ohm digital audio distribution. It features a wide range input circuit. Which will accept any level from 100MV P-P up to 5V P-P to produce four individually buffered 1V P-P outputs.

The MSC-SDI/ASI incorporates the same 1,000 foot automatic cable equalizer circuit used in the HD distribution amplifiers coupled to four in phase independent output drivers. In addition to prividing the required ASI phase to all outputs, the MSC-SDI/ASI is a very cost effective product for applicatiohs that are SDI and not HD.

All external connections on one edge, which makes for a neater installation. These Matrix Switch Corporation HD / SDI distribution amplifiers include front edge indicators for power on, HD detected and Re-clocker lock indication.

The 16 output MSC-HDDA16 HD-SDI Distribution Amplifier is a unique device. By combining a single HD-SDI input equalizer and multi-rate reclocker with a transparent fanout to 16 identical outputs, the MSC-HDDA16 can be used in place of five separate four out HD-SDI Distribution Amplifiers with better performance and lower cost. If separate Distribution Amplifiers are cascaded, each Distribution Amplifier adds unwanted jitter. And because each amplifier has equalization and reclocking, the outputs from different amplifiers will have different characteristics. MSC-HDDA16 HD-SDI Distribution Amplifier would be an excellent choice for distributing reference signals throughout a facility of any other HD SDI source that needs to be the same in many places. Two MSC-HDDA16 HD-SDI Distribution Amplifiers can be mounted in a 1RU space providing wide distribution of one or two HD-SDI signals to 31 or 32 destinations.

NEW! The MSC-MPDA3 is a multi-purpose device. It has two outputs on BNC connectors and an additional output on an RJ45 connector for HD transmission over low cost Ethernet cable. Conversion back from Ethernet to standard 75 ohm BNC is achieved by using an identical MSC-MPDA3 at the receiving end. The same Ethernet cable that is used to carry the HD video can also be used to send 12VDC (at a mere 70ma per amplifier) to more MSC-MPDA3's either upstream or downstream of the MSC-MPDA3 that is powering a string of up to ten in series.
