Description Technical Specs Support Documentation

The AC-DA12-AUHD-GEN2 is a part of the first true 18Gbps distribution amplifier family. (Others in this family are the AC-DA14-AUHD and the AC-DA18-AUHD) This product is ideal on all applications where stable distribution is key. These distribution amplifiers can be cascaded for extended distances and additional outputs.

Full 18Gbps and HDR support ensures military-grade stability even at the highest of bandwidths. To see the difference, install a distribution amplifier in you next bar, restaurant, for commercial and residential installs or for digital signage.

  • Key benefits of using AC-DA12-AUHD-GEN2:

    1) 18Gbps Support (4K60 4:4:4): Even at higher resolutions, this distribution amplifier offers the highest available bandwidth which ensures maximum stability in distributed HDMI systems. The additional bandwidth allows usage of all the latest 4K sources without worrying about headroom. This AVProConnect® distribution amplifier is prepared for all 4K formats and future 8K formats.

2) Cascading: The AC-DA12-AUHD-GEN2 was designed for cascading. There will be no concerns cascading this unit for several "hops". There is even a built-in "cascade mode" that can be enabled for plug and play compatibility.

    3) Full HDR Support: One often overlooked feature is the ability to maintain the integrity of HDR. The distribution amplifier is 100% compatible with HDR and will repeat the signal in its full integrity.

    4) EDID Management: Advanced EDID management is included. Select from sixteen different settings, (including, cascade mode, auto and “from display) which will enhance the ability to get the correct signal throughout the system and will ensure communication with any 3rd party device.

5) Ultra Low-Profile Design: The minimalist design makes the device versatile. It is designed to fit in any nook or cranny. Since there is no need to worry about finding space, this will allow focus on other elements of the job.


    1.) Downscaler on Output 2: This allows you to work around other products that are not able to handle a full 18Gbps signal. Perfect for Legacy AVR's, Legacy Displays or Projectors, and other older video distribution products.

    2.) Audio Extraction: Extract audio directly from the HDMI signal to this new TOSLINK audio extraction port.

    Where Does it Fit?
    These devices are used in many applications. The fact that we are 18 Gbps means anyone who want to distribute 4K UHD with HDR will need to upgrade soon.

    • Retail signal distribution – Recommended for big box stores and local retail stores for advertising along with schools and offices for infoboards. This product will open thousands of new accounts for those who offer it!
    • Bars & Restaurants – The distribution amplifier allows for a simple way to “split” the signal to show in multiple locations.
    • Digital Signage – To distribute high value 4K signals, try this low cost method for airports, rail, subway and more.
    • Cascading – Need more displays? Just connect an output to the next device’s input (all three products are cross compatible) then, keep stringing the displays together. There is a potential for 1x50 AUHD or more!

    5 of 5 Well worth the price. May 24, 2018
    Reviewer: Lawrence Layten from Whites Creek , TN United States  
    It functioned as advertise right out of box. Both the 4K HDR audio video and control signals worked on output 1 and my old 1080p equipment also function exactly as it used to. Great job avpro.

    5 of 5 Very happy with the product. March 14, 2018
    Reviewer: Tom from North Hollywood, CA United States  
    The HDMI distribution device performance is excellent. The scalar  on output 2 produces a perfect 1080p image from a 4K source. All color formats SDR/ HDR in 4k and 1080p work flawlessly on both outputs. I couldn't be happier with the purchase.
