Connect four: new HDMI video switch from Black Box

Hallbergmoos, March 14, 2012 – With the new HDMI video switch from Black Box, the IT and communications specialist, up to 4 HDMI sources, such as Blu-ray players, receivers or game consoles, can share a single HD display. Toggling between the devices can either be done directly at the front panel of the switch or conveniently via remote control – without the inconvenience of having to swap the cables. With Full HD resolutions and WUXGA up to 1920x1200 as well as HDCP-protected contents supported, the switch is thus ideal for conference or classrooms and media workstations with multiple HDMI sources.

The HDMI video switch is available as a 2- or 4-port model and with or without separate audio jacks. The latter comprise an integrated serial interface that allows control via a PC, a serial controller or the remote control included in the delivery. Moreover, they can also be integrated into home cinema systems and operated accordingly. “The operating convenience of the often expensive installations in conference or classroom environments can be improved considerably by using the HDMI video switch, since the sources can be selected directly,“ says Axel Bürger, Managing Director of Black Box Deutschland GmbH. “Even high-end beamers often have only one or two HDMI interfaces so that cables need to be reconnected when necessary. Our powerful device does away with this and the media change is hardly noticeable by the audience.“
