HDMI Video Splitter works on the plug and play principle
Online Movie & Video Streaming: The HDMI Splitters send one HDMI source to multiple displays at the same time. These splitters support all types of HDMI devices such as DVD players, PlayStation 3 (PS3) and satellite set-top boxes. Using this device, both audio and video signals are transmitted digitally over one cable with zero signal loss. Unnecessary clutter is reduced, saving desktop space, since a single cable secures connections. HD resolutions of 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p, computer resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 and a bandwidth of 225MHz are supported by these units. Since HDMI is backward compatible with DVI, this system works with either DVI or HDMI Input.
This HDMI Video Splitter works on the plug and play principle. A user needs to connect the Splitter from the HDMI source to the HDMI splitter input using a HDMI cable. The number of outputs will depend upon the type of splitter used. Newer models guarantee more synchronized in/out ports, high compatibility and high reliability.
The inputs can be flawlessly and seamlessly switched between the sources. Control is exercised by Infra Red remote or the front-panel manual control button on the HDMI Distribution Amplifier. The front-panel LED’s indicate the input which has been selected. Compact in size, this splitter unit transmits uncompressed digital streams and buffers and amplifies outputs. This device ensures a simple way to connect a single HDMI input with two compatible displays.
High Definition Audio & Video Multi-Room Distribution
Crestron have just released their digital media solution which takes any number of analogue and digital inputs and distributes it as high definition to up to 16 rooms. Standard implementations of HDMI allow two ‘hops’ so your DVD player can, just, go from your home cinema receiver to your LCD or Plasma display. The Crestron system therefore regenerates the key at each point ensuring it is ready and waiting when your devices need it – saving the annoying wait as devices handshake which has become standard practice in the HDMI world. Crestron have actually taken the issue of HDMI distribution and gone a level beyond – a central matrix accepts all your inputs (digital and analogue) and distributes the video and audio over Cat5e/6 or fibre to room receivers. These receivers allow HD Video and up to 7.1 surround sound to be presented and even allow USB to be sent back to the central hub area – great for games consoles or PC control! As if that isn’t enough the room controllers also contain RS232 ports for controlling display devices and closed contacts for controlling plasma lifts and other devices.
