For a live shot using a Sony FX6 and a TVU unit, can I use this to split video and audio from the camera to the TVU and to an external monitor without problems?
Asked by: ed
Yes.I’m using 5 of them now in live tv broadcast without any problems or delay. Figuring out the dip switch positions for the desired result resolution is a little tricky but once you figure that out, works great. Suggestion, figure out the dip switch positions before installing them in a tight location.

If I had one hdmi input, can I use the 2 sdi out and the 1 sdi loop and the hdmi out to essentially have a 1x4 distribution splitter?
Asked by: Zack
It would be a 1x3 distribution. The SDI Loop out can only be a reclocked copy of the SDI in.
