Signal distribution amplifiers, also called splitters or duplicators, are devices that allow to obtain identical copies of the original signal to be able to take it to several destinies at the same time. The simplest example is when we want to see the same movie from a DVD on two screens simultaneously.

There are distributors for each type of signal since a distributor usually works with only one type. Thus we will find distributors for VGA, DVI, HDMI, SDI, etc. An exception to this rule are distributors that enter HDMI or VGA and delivers several outputs in Twisted Pair.

The distributors usually have one or maximun two selectable inputs and several outputs which are usually 2, 4, 8 or 16. If necessary, you can chain distributors, but unless they regenerate the signal, it will deteriorate in each step, so That it is not advisable to chain more than 3 steps and always with caution.

Most of the signals can be distributed without problem, but in the case of HDMI we must take into account HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) which is nothing more than an anti-copy protection system.

From Avacab we can advise on which is the distributor that best suits your needs depending on the type of signals to be handled, the use that will be given and of course, within the available budget.
