The VDA-2419 is a multi-rate SDI digital video distribution system for distributing signals from a common input, or two groups of signals from two inputs. It also can handle other data rates within the range and specifications of SDI signals. This is presented in a single slot openGear (OG) card, that can be tandem along with a second card to share a rear panel and achieve a DA with outputs.
But what makes the VDA-2419 truly unique is that it incorporates an integrated cross-point matrix, that allows not only the ability to assign a given input signal to one or more outputs, but also to enable and disable outputs should the need arise. JVC has also incorporated an automatic fail-over mode that, when selected, will switch to the second input should the signal in the first input somehow fail or become corrupted. All outputs are non-inverting and ASI capable. An auto-mute feature will silence any input, whose signals are under 20 Mbps. All of this is easily controlled either via dip switches on the front card edge. And there is a lock-out on the card, that prevents the card parameters from being changed remotely via DBM.
