Accell Corporation - UltraAV 4-8 HDMI Switch
With the popularity of flat panels installed in today's homes, the need for more advanced HDMI distribution products is not uncommon. Accell's new UltraAV HDMI 4-8 Switch is designed to accept up to four HDMI sources from components such as DVD players, personal video recorders, gaming consoles and set-top boxes. The selected input is then mirrored to up to 8 HDMI enabled displays. While most consumers will not have this number of displays, there are those in commercial environments that need to drive large numbers of displays. The 4-8 unit is easy to use and produces reliable video on the connected displays.
The inputs are identified as 1 through 4. The eight outputs are label A through H. The switch includes built-in signal booster that accommodate cables as long as 25-meters (82-feet) between the video source and the switch. Video resolutions up to 1080p are supported. The unit is a fairly compact design that measures 9"(W) x 4.5"(L) x 2"(H).
input can be selected by using the front Select button or with the small
IR remote. The remote measures 3.5" x 1.5" and is only 1/4" thick
and uses a standard CR2025, 3-volt lithium button battery. Separate On and Off
power buttons are provided on the remote along with dedicated input select button
for each of the four inputs. The UltraAV HDMI 4-8 Switch incorporates smart-switch
technology that automatically switches to the active HDMI source. The unit prioritizes
the active source starting with Input 1 and ending with Input 4. Since the unit
is not always placed in a location with clear line-of-sight when using the remote,
Accell has included a self-adhesive IR extender with a 5-foot cable. This allows
the unit to be hidden away while the IR receiver can be placed in a convenient
location visible to the IR remote.
