  • 1:8 SDI distributor
  • Resolution: Up to 4K (4:2:2) 30bpp
  • Data rate: Auto–adapting, up to 12Gbps
  • Input Reach: Up to 80m (260ft) at 12Gbps
  • Compliance: SMPTE standards
  • Lockable connections

VM-8UX is a compact and high performance 1:8 4K distributor for standard broadcast-grade SDI signals of up to 12G transmitted data rate. It auto-adapts to data rate of one SDI input signal, equalises and re-clocks the signal to improve transmitted signal reach, and distributes the signal to eight identical SDI outputs.

  • Reliable Wire Connectivity
    Coaxial broadcast-grade cables are reliably connected via lockable BNC connectors, preventing unintentional wire disconnections, to gain fast and highly professional uncompressed SDI signals distribution deployments.
  • Extended-reach Input Extension
    Input signal equalization and output signals reclocking to gain extended-reach signal extension. Using Kramer high-quality coaxial SDI cables, supports extension of up to 300m (984ft) for SD signals; 200m (656ft) for 1.5G HD signals; 100m (328ft) for 3G and 6G HD signals; 80m (260ft) for 12G 4K signals.
    Note: Reach depends on signal resolution, and quality of copper cable used. Reach extension performance may vary while using non-Kramer coaxial cables.
