      I've used these things in edit bays, machine rooms, on set for video village, at events, pretty much anywhere you need to distribute an HD-SDI output. It's a great little device at a great price.As other reviewers have mentioned, the AC adapter leaves a little to be desired, and I'd like a pair of LEDs (green for signal present, red for no input), but at $ I have nothing to really complain about.4 multi-format, auto-sensing outputs, Solid construction. Works when you need it to. It's not built to be spiked like a football (like the BlackMagicDesign Heavy Duty Converters), but it's also not going to shatter if you accidentally drop it. I have no regrets about this purchase.

      Comments about AJA HD5DA 1x4 HD/SD-SDI Distribution Amplifier / Repeater with DWP:

      This AJA unit is small! Smaller than the equivalent BMD product. The locking power supply is a nice touch too (though it's plastic) and doesn't require making odd loops in the power cable and inserting a tiny zip tie into the unit like the BMD designs. The additional equalization helped overcome a problem we had with a long run as well.

      An optional rack mount clip is available which allows you to mount the unit transversely on your rack, as well as a frame with a power supply that allows you to plug in up to 12 mini-converters.

            I've been swapping out my BlackMagic for AJA because they just work. My only complaint is there is now sync/power button to let you know it's working.

                We use this SDI DA for broadcast video in a remote broadcast truck. I might not use this product in a critical air-chain, because it runs on just a single power supply. It's better for upstream applications where you may need a small modular unit for a particular video source. Its quality is just fine for just about any pro video application, though. Passes and reclocks either SD or HD SDI video just fine. AJA shipped this unit power supply included, which is an improvement over the past, when you used to have to remember to order the wall wart as an extra accessory.
