COMP-DA-1X8: 1:8 Component with Audio Distribution Amplifier

  • Distribute One Component Source to Eight Displays

The Model COMP-DA-1X8 1:8 Component with Audio Distribution Amplifier is the perfect solution for anyone who needs to send one source of high definition component video and analog or digital audio to multiple displays at the same time. It supports component equipment, such as DVD players, satellite set top boxes, and Component displays. In operation, the component video source is connected to the distribution amplifier at the input. Eight outputs are available to be used in part or in full. Once the unit is connected and powered, the source is distributed to eight component high definition displays at the same time.

Simply connect the source’s component and audio cables to the 1:8’s input. Then, connect up to eight Component displays to the 1:8’s outputs. Power on the unit and watch up to full High Definition 1080p on up to eight displays without any signal loss or picture degradation. When two or more 1:8’s are connected together, you can create a larger video distribution system.

Includes: 5 VDC Power Supply (regulatory approvals include UL and CE), one 6 ft 5-RCA Component / R+L cable, and rack ears.
