This Gefen EXT-HDMI-341-BLK 3x1 HDMI Switcher in black provides high-quality electronic switching, so that three HDMI sources can be connected to a single HDMI input. For example, you can easily switch your HDTV display between three HDMI sources. It is the perfect solution for connecting DVD players, satellite receivers, HDTV set top boxes, or any HDMI-enabled source equipment to a single input. The "Black" designation refers to the blue/black colors of the case, offering an alternative to Gefen's typical blue/silver color scheme.
Being a pure HDMI design, the Gefen EXT-HDMI-341-BLK HDMI switcher handles both HDMI video and HDMI audio. It comes with an IR remote control, and it has discrete codes so that it can easily be controlled by universal remote controls/macros.
This switcher is also ideal for use with the newest DVI-enabled equipment. By default, the package includes HDMI/HDMI cables, but but you may also select DVI/HDMI conversion cables at no additional cost - just specify your choice when you check out.
Cable Solutions backs the EXT-HDMI-341-BLK with a one year limited warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. This warranty is separate from any warranty that may be provided by the manufacturer, so you must contact Cable Solutions for all warranty-related issues.
Gefen's 3x1 HDMI™ Switcher routes high definition video in multiple resolutions up to 1080p plus multi-channel digital audio from any of four sources. Three inputs accommodate the simultaneous connection of up to three high definition video sources, such as satellite systems and HD DVD players. The output sends the high definition audio/video signals to a high definition display. Switching is done via the IR remote that is provided with the unit.
HDCP (high bandwidth digital content protection) is a standard encoded into the video signal to prevent it from being pirated. If a source device is HDCP coded and is connected to a display or projector without the proper decoding mechanism, the picture is relegated to "snow" or in some cases, very low (480P) resolutions of the images. In order to see high resolution digital video with HDCP compliance, both the source, the display and anything in between must be equipped with HDMI™I connections that can enable HDCP decoding, such as the 3x1 HDMI Switcher.
You simply connect all your sources to the Switcher's inputs. Then connect the display on the output port. Once the sources, the Switcher and the display(s) are powered and connected, you simply select which source you want to view using the IR remote.
Note: This HDMI product supports BOTH Audio and Video signals.DVI, HDCP & HDMI Defined
