Application Note for MD-QUAD
10 Input Multiviewer Example

The Following diagram is an example of a 10 input digital multi-viewer using a DECIMATOR DESIGN (aka REDBYTE DESIGN) MD-QUAD quad split in a cascade configuration. The diagram implies a 4 camera facility / OB / fly away kit however it can be used for ANY SDI source.

Please note that the below diagram uses 3 MD-QUAD units to illustrate the 10 input digital multi-viewer, just as 5 MD-QUAD units would produce a 16 input digital mulit-viewer.

NB. Any format may be displayed at any time on any quadrant with its auto-sensing inputs. HD-SDI output is user configurable.
