The BBG-DA-12G-1×6 is a 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI / ASI / MADI multi-rate distribution amplifier that features an input status LED. The unit is fully automatic and supports SMPTE 2082-1 (12G), 424M (3G), 292M and 259M SDI video signals as well as ASI and MADI, and is equipped with one input and six reclocked SDI outputs. (Reclocking only for 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI and MADI inputs.). The unit supports 1×4 ASI distribution using its non-inverting outputs.

Various settings can be configured using the device DIP switches or by using the intuitive BBGConfig UI application that communicates with BBG-DA-12G-1×6 over a PC’s USB port. When configured using the BBGConfig UI app, the USB connection can be removed with all settings held in non-volatile device memory.

Note: includes PS4 – Universal Power Supply, UL/CSA. Input: 100-240V, 60/50 Hz. Output: 5 VDC @ 12 Watts

Mounting option

BBG-MB   –   Mounting bracket

The BBG-MB Mounting Bracket provides rigid, secure mounting of the unit. Heavy-gauge steel construction with a reinforced mounting flange and several mounting holes provides clean, physically secure mounting for even the most demanding mobile applications.
