Composite and Component video signals can be fickle, requiring proper 75 ohm termination to guarantee the best possible image quality. When you have one video source to send to two or more receiving device inputs using a splitter cable or a “stackable” cable doesn’t work very well, and a “distribution amplifier” is required. There are many stand-alone devices already available to do this, but this 4HP module mounts conveniently in your rack, saving space and avoiding the need for an external plug-pack to power it!
This module provides two independent distribution amplifiers, each with three outputs.
What You Get
The Dual Distrib comes as a PCB + Panel set for DIY, with no electronic components or panel RCA sockets included. To build this module you will need to purchase all those bits as well and solder it together yourself. This is an great project for beginners, due to its low part count.
The information you’ll need to build this module can be found in the Dual Distrib Build Guide (coming soon!) which includes the Bill of Materials (BOM), component layout diagrams and other helpful information.
The information you’ll need to build this module can be found in the Dual Distrib Manual V0.2b.
