8SDI/A - 8x SDI to analog video converter

The 8SDI/A is a high perfomance, multistandard, video converter which accepts eight component serial digital inputs (4:2:2) and provides three analog outputs for every converter.
These three analog output can be user configured as a composite and Y/C , or RGB or YUV.
A loop-through reference input is provided to lock the colour field sequence.
The 8SDI/A is a 1 RU 19" mountable frame with universal power supply input (90-240 Vac).


  • 8 indipendent converters.
  • 3 user configured outputs per converter (CVBS + Y/C, RGB, YUV).
  • Ideal for monitoring serial component signals with inexpensive composite analog monitors.
  • 1 loop-through reference input to lock the colour field sequence.
