Mil-Spec 3G-SDI Video Splitter Released

EIZO Hydra 1004R video splitterEIZO Rugged Solutions has launched a new ruggedized standalone MIL-STD-810-compliant 3G-SDI video splitter that has been designed for operation in harsh environments. The low-SWaP (size, weight, and power) Hydra 1004R is ideal for distributing high-quality video to different locations in applications such as UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) and UGV (unmanned ground vehicle) ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) video surveillance.

The Hydra 1004R features five front-facing connectors for easy access in a variety of installations. It splits a 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, or SD-SDI input signal across its four 3G-SDI outputs (BNC) for viewing or distribution, and also automatically syncs to the input resolution. Power and SDI link status LEDs are visible on the front of the unit, allowing users to easily check device status.

The unit features built-in signal regeneration, which re-clocks the 3G-SDI signal to ensure that the video quality is not compromised. The signal regeneration conditions the SDI signals to reduce video jitter and data interference for low-latency video distribution.

The Hydra 1004R has been designed to support long life cycles of over ten years, and is engineered to meet strict stress, regression, and aging requirements to MIL-STD-810 standards. It can operate within an extended temperature range of -40 to 85°C and can withstand high humidity levels of 95% without condensation, shock of up to 40g, and vibration of up to 0.1g²/Hz.
