For example, you need to install a projector, the cord is going across the floor, the length of the HDMI cable may exceed 65 ft. If you have two available HDMI cable with a slightly shorter distance, the best solution is choosing a quality HDMI repeater compared with buying a new HD cable.
If you need more HDMI 2.0 ports and extract audio from source devices to your audio receiver simultaneously, the best solution is HDMI 2.0 switch with audio output, which can simply be considered as the combination of HDMI 2.0 audio extractor and HDMI 2.0 switcher.
If you need more HDMI port on your TV, or diplay the same content on multiple TVs / monitors simultaneously, an HDMI switcher or HDMI splitter is enough. However, if you need to use multiple HDMI source devices and multiple high-definition display terminals at the same time, and want to be able to arbitrarily control the transmission of one or more HDMI signals to one or more display devices, the solution is HDMI matrix switch.
Some days ago, we introduced some HDMI audio extractor converters with different HDMI version (HDMI 1.3, 1.4 and 2.0). In addition to the HDMI version, the function of splitting the audio is the same.
Smart TVs equipped with buit-in OS and installed apps (such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, HBO,etc.) have been more and more popular, It’s more convenient to enjoy movies, music, online games without extra source devices required.
HDMI audio extractor splitter is a perfect solution to extract audio channel from HDMI signal, and output to your soundbar or other audio receiver, if your monitor or TV has no available audio output, and you want to hook the audio into a sound system for better performance.
Last post, we introducted some top-rated 4K 60Hz HDMI 2.0 switchs which can add more HDMI ports on your TV. Today we are going to introduce a device that has the opposite function, that is 4K HDMI 2.0 splitters, it allow us to split one UHD signal to multi 4K 60Hz TVs or monitors.
Some days ago, we introduced several top-rated HDMI 2.0 HDR switchers and HDMI 2.0 HDR Splitters. As we know, in order to ensure stable signal transmission, the qualified HDMI cable is also very important. 4K 60Hz HDR video need a faster and more stable transmission, so 18Gbps HDMI 2.0 HDR cable is currently recommended.
As we have known, in order to get more HDMI ports on your TV, an HDMI switch is required. Currently, most 4K TVs resolution has been up to 4K@60Hz (60fps), even 4K@120Hz, as well as multi HDMI devices like PS4 Pro, Xbox One S, Blu-ray player, Apple TV 4 and more, have been equipped with HDMI 2.0 port and support 4K 60Hz HDR HDCP 2.2.
If your TV has only one HDMI port, but you want to use several HDMI devices (such as PS3, Apple TV, Roku, DVD Player,etc.) on your TV. The best way is to get an HDMI device to expand your HDMI ports on TV. Do not try to unplug HDMI cable to change input device, which will damage your HDMI port.
