    Comments about Kramer VM-2HD 1:2 SDI & HD-SDI (HDTV) Video Distribution Amplifier:

    I was having issues getting a HD-SDI signal through some marginal (underwater) cable/connection combinations so I put one of these in-line between the camera and the connections to boost the signal - now I get a clear signal on the other end where before
    the signal had lots of dropouts.
