A HDMI Switch provides the ability to connect multiple source devices to a single HDMI input.
Each source device is connected to a numbered input on the switch. The preferred source device can then be selected by remote control or by a button located on the unit, which is then routed out the single HDMI output on the switch which is then connected to the display.
The drawback with older model displays is that they often don’t offer enough HDMI inputs. With our ever evolving collection of technology, it is not uncommon to find yourself with more devices than inputs available. These units act much like the AV switches of last generation, with the exception that a HDMI Switch will offer a secure digital path ensuring absolutely no quality is lost from source to display.
