By concurrently translating one HDMI signal to two discrete devices, the HDMI splitter is designed to display the same content onto two or more devices. You can enjoy the spectacular high-definition demonstrations without latency, flash, blank screen, buzzing sound, or resolution loss. In other words, an HDMI splitter takes a single source and distributes information to several TVs.
Whether on a television or a projector, a splitter duplicates a signal and spreads it over numerous HDMI wires. Some splitters also function as switches, having multiple inputs and outputs. If you wish to run two screens at the same time, keep in mind that the resolution for all is the lowest resolution display. To say this in other terms, in case of a 4K television and a 1080p television, the 4K component will only provide 1080p. The splitter will not only transform the data to 1080p for that TV.
Buying an HDMI splitter can be a bit complex. Many people ask this question: will the splitter work with their device, or will it keep the resolution as it is without degrading the quality? These worries are pretty common and yet completely unnecessary. HDMI is an electronic transmitter that, even with a selector, will not degrade in the same way that older analogue signals did.
If you detect a noticeable decline in signal quality, your splitter may be malfunctioning or you may have a damaged connection. As long as your HDMI port and splitter support HDMI 2.0, you may send a 4K stream without losing performance or quality.
Why do you need one?
With the introduction of HDMI as the primary signal standard for high-definition television, the variety of possibilities for enhancing, changing, or controlling that signal has expanded into a fascinating and befuddling array. The HDMI Splitter is one of the most straightforward and flexible devices for changing HDMI signals. These specific, robust, and dependable devices have everything you need to broadcast a single HDMI signal to numerous monitors. Whether you want to transfer HDMI between two TVs in your home or set up more than two for an event, the 1×2, 1×4, 1×8, and 1×16 HDMI splitters are HDMI v1.3b compliant and handle 1080p and 3D.
The upside of buying an HDMI splitter
HDMI splitters are helpful if you wish to display the same video on many monitors at the same time. HDMI splitters are usually used when you have a particular device but several displays in different rooms and want to show the same information on all of them. They will also not degrade signal quality. There should also be no additional latency in the picture. The audio return channel is commonly supported by HDMI splitters.
Furthermore,automated HDMI splitters work as an extender to enhance the digital HDMI signal and let you go beyond the typical 15-foot length restriction for the protocol. Splitters will also constantly handle the EDID exchanges and HDCP signals required by HDMI inputs and monitors.
Can I split a single HDMI to two monitors?
Yes, with HDMI Splitter you can easily connect one HDMI source to two HDMI displays. This is ideal for scenarios where you want to view the same content on two different monitors or screens. Simply connect the HDMI cable from your device into the splitter, then connect each of your monitors into the splitter as well. No matter what resolution your display is set at, our unique active splitting technology will deliver outstanding image quality to both screens simultaneously.
What kind of HDMI splitter do I need?
The answer to this question depends on the kind of TV you have. If you have a standard HDTV, you will need an HDMI splitter that is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection). HDCP is a form of digital rights management that is used by content providers to protect their content from being pirated. Most HDMI splitters on the market are compatible with HDCP, but it’s always best to check before buying.\\
If you have a 4K UHD TV, you will need an HDMI 2.0 splitter. HDMI 2.0 is the latest specification of the HDMI interface and it supports resolutions up to 4K UHD (ultra high definition). Many 4K TVs on the market today are compatible with HDMI 2.0, but again, it’s always best to check before buying.
Finally, if you have a TV that does not support HDCP or HDMI 2.0, you will need an analog video splitter. Analog video splitters do not require any special cables or adapters, and they will work with any TV. However, they will only split the video signal, so you will need to connect each TV to its own audio source.
What type of splitter do I need for dual monitors?
There are a few different types of splitters you could use for dual monitors, but the most common type is a VGA splitter. This type of splitter takes one VGA input and splits it into two VGA outputs. If your monitors both use VGA inputs, then a VGA splitter will work for you.
If your monitors use different input types, such as DVI or HDMI, then you’ll need to buy a splitter that supports those input types. For example, if your monitor uses DVI inputs, you’ll need to buy a DVI splitter.
If you’re not sure what type of input your monitor uses, check the back of the monitor to see what type of input it has. It should be clearly labeled.
