Review (February 2008)
By Kevin Nakano
While HDMI switchers are abundant for the many HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) sources available, sharing sources among multiple displays is not an easy task. Much like HDMI switchers, HDMI splitters are expensive due to the point-to-point electrical interface requirements of HDMI. Accell Corporation, known well for their cables and accessories, have recently introduced the new and affordable UltraAV 1:2 HDMI Splitter designed to retransmits digital audio and video signals from a single HDMI source. For example, the splitter allows a single HD DVD player or PlayStation3 game console to drive two independant displays. The UltraAV 1:2 HDMI Splitter is capable of carrying both multi-channel audio and high-definition (HD) digital video in resolutions of up to 1080p. The device is fully compatible with HDCP devices and HDMI 1.2a compliant. The HDMI splitter is also designed to work with personal computers and DVI enabled devices (requires optional DVI adapters). The UltraAV 1:2 HDMI Splitters can also be cascaded together to increase the number of connected displays.
Next we used our Sony PlayStation 3 as a source for 1080p video. We loaded NBA07, which is capable of full 1080p at 60 Hz. A set of shorter 2-meter cables were used during the test. Video looked perfect and exhibited no digital artifacts. Colors were accurate with excellent saturation. We also played several movies that ran 1080p at 24 frames per second and they too looked great with no problems. Mileage may vary with longer cable runs since some video can have difficulty at higher bandwidths.
