S-Video amplifiers are typically used in AV systems including control centers, training facilities, boardrooms, home theater and rental/staging applications. The function of an S-Video amplifier is to route a single S-Video signal to multiple outputs. S-Video is achieved by separating the black-and-white from coloring signals; the result supersedes composite video quality but is still lower compared to component video resolution. When using these amplifiers in a large sized application, integrators can cascade 2 or more S-Video amplifiers. In a perfect AV world an S-Video signal may be split unlimitedly, however in the AV world we live in signal degradation is inevitable. The most common S-Video connector is a 4-pin mini-DIN connector; however 7-pin and 9-pin mini-DIN connectors may also be used since the Y/C signals for all types are compatible. Searching for the right S-Video amplifier for your application may be a challenge and we advise to reach out to your local integrator or call one of our knowledgeable representatives.
