MVL-HD3 Dual Receive Head

The MVL-HD3 is the latest HD/SD receiver/decoder from Gigawave featuring 2 way MRC diversity over a single triax cable.

The receive system is split into two parts. The Head unit handles RF/antenna connections whilst the Control Unit handles all video, audio and power connections with triax joining the two parts together. With a range of over 600 m separating the two units this system is perfect for wireless camera receive in stadiums.

The unit is supplied with 2 way MRC diversity as standard but can be expanded to 4 way over 2 triax cables on request.

Dual SDI outputs as well as composite, ASI, and 4 Analogue audio channels provide all the connectivity required.

As well as wireless camera reception the system is also suited to many other applications including point to point links and helicopter downlinks with various high gain antenna and mounting options available all tailored to each specific hire.

Available in 2.5 GHz

The control panel of the MVL-HD3 provides access to all functions and even includes a video display of the decoded image – great for confidence monitoring.
