2-Channel Component Video Splitter/Switch
1. Introduction
1.1 General
The Model AC1030A is a versatile dual-purpose unit that can function
as either a Video Splitter (1 in x 2 out) or a Switcher (2 in x 1 out). Its
mode of operation is set via a convenient front panel switch. The device
is compatible with analog Component Video (YCbCr, or YPbPr) and
RGB (sync-on-green) signals. It supports all RGB, TV, and HDTV
resolutions up to 1080i.
Figure 1 – Rear and Front of the AC1030A
The AC1030A features 3 BNC connectors per channel and comes with
RCA-to-BNC adapters for all connections allowing the use of either 3BNC or 3-RCA cables.

2. Installation
1.
2.
Your package includes the Splitter/Switch box, a power supply, 9
pieces of RCA-to-BNC adapters, and this Manual. No cables are
included with this device, if you need to purchase Component
cables for inputs and outputs please contact Black Box.
Prior to applying the power supply to the unit, decide if the
application calls for a Splitter (1 in x 2 out) or a Switch (2 in x 1
out) and set the mode of operation via the front panel switch. Once
power is applied, if the unit is acting as a splitter both LED’s on the
front panel (labeled A and B) will be on, and when acting as a
switch, only one LED (the selected port) will be lit.

3. Operation
When the AC1030A is configured as a Splitter, both LED’s on the front
panel (labeled A and B) will be lit and the push-button switches are
disabled.
Alternatively, if the unit is acting as a Switch, only on of the LED’s on
the front panel will be lit. Use the push-buttons on the front panel to
select the input channel to be routed to the output. By default, upon
power-on reset, channel 1 is selected.
Note that the unit can also be used for Composite Video signals, which
only require one connection for each port. In this case, we recommend
that you use the Y connector on each port.

4. Troubleshooting
4.1 FAQ
No Sync or Color Distortion
Most common problem can be attributed to incorrect cable
connection to the unit. The Component video and RGB signals
have 3 components each. This means that each port has 3
connections and their proper usage is imperative. In general use
the following guidelines:
G or Y à green cable
B or Pb à blue cable
R or Pr à red cable
