Product Review (May 2012)
By Kevin Nakano
Accell Corporation has recently introduced the new UltraAV® Mini 1x4 HDMI® Audio/Video Splitter (MSRP $149.99, Street $100) designed to deliver HDMI video to four displays including all HD resolutions (1080p and 3D) from a single source. The unit is perfect for situations where multiple users want access to the same source, such as a Bluray player or set-top box, with multiple HDMI TVs, projectors and monitors. The unit is compatible with all HDCP compliant devices and is capable of data rates as high as 6.75 Gbps (225 MHz). This splitter can also handle streaming Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD lossless data along with 36-Bit Deep Color. This compact chassis measures approximately 6" x 3" x 1" (WxLxH) and weighs a modest 9 ounces.
In addition to our shorter cable runs, we also tested the splitter using a long Accell 25-meter UltraRun 1.3 HDMI cable connected to our Mitsubishi HC7800U 3D projector. The drive capability of the Accell 1x4 HDMI Splitter was excellent with pristine video performance regardless of whether it was 2D or 3D content. Our test disc Immortals 3D provided good test images with some dark scenes that revealed good shadow detail. The 3D content looked excellent with no degradation in video quality.
