Moreover, the front of the splitter integrates an OLED display that allows users to monitor signal type, link quality, equalization amount, and temperature. An Eye-Pattern diagnostic tool is also available to evaluate the quality of the input signal.

The back of the splitter hosts a 15mm rod clamp to quickly and securely attach the device to your rig, along with two 2-pin in/out power ports (10-17VDC) with a polarity agnostic design. The SmartCAM TEMPO draws less than 5W of power and has a built-in heat-sink for heat dissipation.

Rugged design and upgradable firmware

According to the company, the aluminum construction of the SmartCAM TEMPO is solid enough to provide peace of mind when working on set. The device measures 91x73x31.5mm / 3.58×2.87×1.24” including all connectors, and weighs 0.180g/0.39lbs.
