2x8 HDMI® Switch & Splitter
Build the ultimate Man Cave with two large-screen displays on each wall using the Monoprice 2x8 Switch/Splitter to drive the displays!
OK, so eight displays in one room is a bit much even for the most dedicated football fan, but you can also use this device to run a TV in each room of your house. Commercial applications include TV store owners, who will want this switch/splitter to support direct, side-by-side comparison of eight displays with the ability switch instantly between two different inputs.
This matrix has two HDMI® inputs and eight HDMI outputs, so you can switch between two input source devices and send the signal simultaneously to eight displays. No setup or special configuration is required, simply connect the input device(s) and output device(s), then start using it!
The unit also has a built in, automatically adjusting amplifier. This means that you can use longer than normal HDMI cables running to the inputs. The built-in amplifier will then regenerate the HDMI signal before sending it to the outputs. This lets you extend beyond the normal range (25 feet) for High Speed (1080p) signals.
The unit supports up to 1080p resolution, 12-bit per channel color depth, and high definition audio signals, such as DTS® Digital, Dolby® Digital, DTS-HD Master Audio™, and Dolby TrueHD™, as well as standard LPCM stereo.
Note that you don't have to have two inputs and eight outputs to use this device. You can use just the switching function if you only have one display or just the splitter function if you have only one input.
Note: Monoprice strongly recommends the use of minimum 24 AWG HDMI cables when connecting a device, such as this switch/splitter, between the source and destination devices to ensure minimal signal loss and maximum High Speed signal reliability.
Note that this is NOT a "matrix" device. It cannot independently distribute each input to the various outputs. It is a switch and splitter. You can select either input and split it to the 8 outputs.
