The 7700DA7-3G reclocking distribution amplifiers provide inexpensive distribution of your SMPTE ST 424, ST 292-1 and SMPTE ST 259-1 serial digital video signals at rates of 3GB/s, 1.5GB/s and 270MB/s. The DA supports all other all other SMPTE ST 344-1, SMPTE ST 259-1, SMPTE ST310-1 and DVB-ASI data rates in a non-reclocked mode (540MB/s, 360MB/s, 143MB/s, and 19.4MB/s).

Ideal in applications where a large quantity of outputs is required, the DA features an auto-equalized input with seven isolated reclocked outputs.

The 7700DA7-3G occupies one card slot and can be housed in the 1RU 7801FR frame which holds up to four single or two dual slot modules, the 3RU 7800FR frame which has a 15 slot capacity, the portable 3RU 350FR frame which has a 7 slot capacity, or a standalone enclosure which holds a single module.


  • Normal reclocked mode for SMPTE ST 424 (3GB/s), SMPTE ST 292-1 (1.5GB/s) and SMPTE ST 259-1 (270MB/s)
  • Remote selectable non-reclocked mode for all other SMPTE ST 344-1, SMPTE ST 259-1, SMPTE ST 310-1 and DVB-ASI data rates
  • Fully hot-swappable from front of frame with no BNC disconnect required
  • Tally output on Frame Status bus upon loss of input signal for quality monitoring
  • VistaLINK® capable for remote monitoring, control and configuration capabilities via SNMP; using VistaLINK® PRO, CP-2116E or CP-2232E Control Panels. VistaLINK® is available when modules are used with the 3RU 7800FR frame and a 7800FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller module in slot 1 of the frame
