CRYSTAL VISION RELEASES DIGITAL AND ANALOGUE VIDEO DAS FOR ITS NEW FRAME SYSTEM Posted: 31/10/2016

Crystal Vision has released two video distribution amplifiers for its new Vision frame system, both with more outputs than the company has ever offered before and including remote control as standard. The 3GDA-VF is a very flexible video distribution amplifier: it can be configured as reclocking or non-reclocking, it will distribute any digital video (3Gb/s, HD and SD) as well as being DVB-ASI compatible, and it is not even limited to video with its ability to distribute MADI audio. Including useful gain, equalisation and clamp adjustments, the VDA-VF analogue video distribution amplifier has been designed to distribute SD Black and Burst or HD tri-level syncs reference, and can also be used to create multiple copies of analogue video. Those using the Vision DAs have discovered that their systems work out cheaper compared to using the company's traditional Indigo range.
