Kramer’s de-embedder goes the distance

AUTHOR: Inavate

Kramer Electronics introduced the 6808HdxI 3G HD-SDI AES Audio De-embedder with claims of longer distance capability thanks to Equalisation and re-Klocking technology.

The 6808HDxl has one SDI input and output on BNC connectors to accept an SD, HD or 3G-SDI signal. Its input automatically detects the incoming signal format. Supported formats include SMPTE standards 259M, 344M, 344M and 424M. The 6808HDxl de-embeds two channels of AES audio from one of four selectable audio groups. These audio channels are then output via the two AES/EBU audio BNC output connectors.

Group select DIP-switches make it simple to select the audio group to de-embed, while Kramer’s Equalization & re-Klocking Technology rebuilds the digital signal enabling long distance signal transmission. The unit features a maximum data rate of 3Gpbs.

The 6808HDxl is powered by an included 5V DC power supply and is housed in a Kramer DigiTOOLS enclosure.
