Designed and built to provide "true" broadcast-quality HDTV digital video signal routing capabilities, Canarie introduces its 20DV 2x20 Digital Video Patchbay into the professional arena. It combines unsurpassed clarity and signal reliability with the ability to pass uncompressed HD-SDI 1080p video signals up to an amazing 3Gbps. Its rugged 1RU design houses (20) DVJB-W 75 Ohm dual video jacks that are each configured with an independently developed rotary switch, which offer a dual-contact construction for improved contact stability. Specifically designed for use with high frequency signals, these jacks provide superior signal isolation and can double as a digital audio AES/EBU patching solution. Moreover, each DVJB-W jack offers "normal through" signal routing that provides a normalled route between top and bottom jacks - and it utilizes VPC series patch cords.
Aside from its lightweight aluminum alloy construction, the overall video signal characteristics and Return Loss and Isolation specifications of the Canarie 20DV intrinsically meet the high demands of high profile broadcast operations often required by HDTV/SDTV studios, digital mobile units, OB vans, uplink trucks, edit suites, or a variety of corporate and commercial video applications.
