Distribution Amplifier (Splitter)A device that takes one signal (from one source) and broadcasts (splits) it to many destinations at the same time – each destination receiving the same signal.

Splitters are typically used in video and audio/video distribution applications such as digital signage, or for distribution of HDTV to multiple screens. An A/V splitter is sometimes referred to as a distribution amplifier (DA).

Splitters may support the target destinations being in proximity to the source, or being far away from the source, typically using CAT-5 cable as means of connecting the source to the destination.
