A video splitter is the device that gives life to the phrase “I’m watching you!” This splitter, sometimes referred to as a video distribution amplifier, is a device that distributes video signals from a sending device to multiple monitors. Splitters act as an amplifier, boosting the video signal so that it can travel hundreds of feet without video signal degradation. In fact, the image displayed on multiple monitors appears as if the sending device was directly connected to the monitor. Since there are different types of monitors: VGA, digital and high-definition, you will need to identify the type of monitor used for this type of video distribution. There are VGA, DVI, Component, Composite, S-Video and HDMI video splitters. If you want to be able to hear and see images, there are video amplifiers that transmit both audio and video signals to multiple display units. This is a popular configuration for entertainment venues where a broadcast is transmitted to televisions in different rooms.
Security Camera Monitoring
The hospitality industry (and government agencies) uses video splitter units to monitor activity in areas that have inventory or for monitoring the activity of people in the building or on the property. A camera located in a refrigerator captures activity in that area. This reduces losses as well as protects employees from danger should they be accidently locked in the cold area. The images captured by the camera are transmitted to displays that are monitored by supervisors. The displays can be located in different places in the building so that supervisors can view the activity from multiple vantage points.
Restaurants, hotels, convention centres and other locations that use televisions for entertainment and communication purposes benefit from video distribution amplifier products that send both audio and video signals to multiple televisions.
A video distribution amplifier transmits the video capture sent from cameras strategically located in community areas. While guests are watching the Superbowl game and the commercials, the house management can monitor the enthusiasm of the guests without leaving their station at the front desk or manager’s office.
