500FR / 500DA2Q-HD

The Evertz 500FR / 500DA2Q-HD is Compact Distribution Frame is an ideal solution for today’s vast digital video distribution requirements as it handles the high-speed requirements of HDTV signals and the frame design allows extraction of modules from the front without compromising performance even at 1.5GB/s. Also the Evertz 500FR / 500DA2Q-HD Compact Distribution Frame is a 3RU frame designed to house up to 16, 500DA2A-HD distribution amplifiers offering the highest density DA in the industry.

Evertz 500FR / 500DA2Q-HD provides inexpensive distribution of your HD-SDI  SMPTE ST 292-1 (1.5Gb/s) or any other SDI signal within the 143Mb/s to 1.5Gb/s range and the 500DA2Q-HD card features two auto-equalized inputs that can be configured either as a single DA with eight reclocked outputs or as two separate DAs with four outputs each. In the case of dual operation, each DA can be individually set via jumpers for either reclocking or non-reclocking.

The 500DA2Q-HD is housed in the 500FR exponent frame that will hold up to 16 modules


  • Normal mode for SMPTE ST 292-1 (1.5Gb/s) SMPTE ST 259 (143 to 360Mb/s) or SMPTE ST 344 (540Mb/s) signals – autodetects correct bit rate
  • Jumper selectable mode for DVB-ASI
  • Jumper selectable non-reclock mode for SMPTE ST 310(19.4Mb/s) signals or any other SDI signal within the 143Mb/s to 1.5Gb/s range
  • Configurable as 1 DA with 8 outputs or 2 DAs with 4 outputs each
  • Fully hot-swappable from front of frame with no BNC disconnect required
  • Independent isolated output drivers to ensure no cross channel loading effects (i.e. no need to terminate unused outputs)
  • Module health and 2×4 Mode Status LEDs
  • Reclocker(s) Locked, Carrier Present and Video Standard LEDs for each DA channel
  • Tally output on Frame Status bus upon loss of input signal
