Review (November 2007) - Atlona
By Kevin Nakano
While HDMI video switchers provide a way to accept multiple sources on one input of a display, few options exist for a single HDMI source to multiple displays. For example, we have a Dish Network DVR that has an RF remote control and would love to use it in another room when we are not in the main viewing room. Well, that is now possible with the Atlona AT-HDMI14 HDMI distribution amplifier. This little box provides an easy way to distribute a single source to up to four displays. The unit is HDCP compliant and includes a built-in EDID simulator and HDCP keyset to allow each output to work independently when connected to an HDMI display. The unit measures a mere 5.7" W x 3.8" D x 1.5" H and is well constructed from a metal chassis.
The connector interfaces are evenly split between the two sides of the unit. Two HDMI connectors and the power jack are on one side while the three HDMI connectors are on the other side. Two LED indicators provide power and sync status for the unit. The AT-HDMI14 is powered by an external universal (100-240VAC, 50/60Hz) high-efficiency switching AC power adapter that provides the unit with 5V at up to 2.6A. The unit does not have any buttons nor does it need to be configured for operation. Simply plug the source into the input jack and connect the outputs to the displays. The user should verify the Sync light turns on to ensure the amplifier recognizes the video signal.
