DESCRIPTION
The Extron MDA Series of Mini Distribution Amplifiers includes
10 models for composite video, S-video, SDI serial digital video,
and stereo audio. The MDA Series video DAs are compatible with
NTSC, PAL, and SECAM video signals, and allow for cable runs up
to 150 feet with analog video, and up to 1000 feet with SDI digital
video signals. Audio-capable MDA models feature captive screw or
RCA connectors for balanced/unbalanced or unbalanced, line level
stereo audio signals.
Part of the VersaTools® line of economical, compact products, MDA
Series distribution amplifiers are rack or under-desk mountable and
include an external international power supply. Their small size
makes them an ideal solution for easy integration into both new
and existing A/V systems including boardrooms, training facilities,
home theater, command and control centers, and rental and
staging environments.
