The Gefen EXT-HDMI1.3-242 is a 2x2 Switcher for HDMI 1.3 which is equipped with two HDMI inputs and two HDMI outputs. Two inputs accommodate the simultaneous connection of up to two high definition video sources, such as satellite systems and Blu-Ray players. Two outputs send the high definition audio/video signals to up to two HDTV displays. Switching is done via the included IR remote.

Fully HDCP Compliant
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 connections that can enable HDCP decoding, such as the 2x2 Switcher for HDMI 1.3.

How the Gefen HDMI 1.3 Switcher Works:
Connect all your sources to the 2x2 Switcher for HDMI 1.3 inputs. Then connect up to two displays on the output ports. Once the sources, the switcher and the displays are powered and connected, you then select which source you want to view using the IR remote.

Note: All displays that cannot show the same video resolutions as the Primary Display connected to Output #1 may fail to show a picture. Secondary displays follow the Primary by sharing the resolution and capability information (EDID) obtained from the Primary Display.
