The 104LN is a unique piece of equipment that combines the functions of a distribution amplifier and a line driver. It accepts one composite video input and distributes a signal to four buffered outputs; gain and EQ controls are used to adjust the output level and equalization. The controls are used to compensate for signal losses in such situations as long cable runs. This model offers a differential input for noise elimination.

Controls
The gain control adjusts the level of the overall signal; the EQ control boosts the upper frequencies that are inherently most susceptible to loss.
High Bandwidth
At 400 MHz the bandwidth of this unit exceeds all standards for passing a composite video signal.
Compact Size
It is able to be mounted in small areas and it is compact enough to fit into a travel bag for portable applications.
AC or DC Operation
This unit comes with an AC power supply as standard equipment but, can also be powered from 12 VDC portable supplies for applications where AC power isn't easily accessed.
Differential Input
The step up feature of this model is the "differential input" offering noise elimination features.

      Comments about Kramer 104LN 1x4 Composite Video Line Amplifier:

      This worked well for a year, but after that the output was incredibly noisy, and even if using a hum eliminator, the signal would get a little better, but definitely not professional quality.

        Works Good Not great for Broadcast

        By mbayer

        from Philadelphia, PA

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • price

        Cons

        • Not individually balanced
        • Not isolated

        Best Uses

          Comments about Kramer 104LN 1x4 Composite Video Line Amplifier:

          Ok for basic signal spliiting. Needed some additional hum buckers and other wiring adaptations to interface to various devices including broadcast truc. Each line is not individual load balanced. So if there are disimilar runs of coax you may have issues.
