HDMI Splitters allow for the simultaneous display of images and audio from one HDMI source to multiple HDMI LCDs or TVs. CAT5e/CAT6 HDMI Splitter Extenders are a cost effective solution compared to standard HDMI cables for longer distances. They are available in 2 port, 4 port and 8 port units. These devices support Full HD 1920×1080 (1080p) resolution, but that can vary depending upon the device and distance. HDMI Distribution Amplifiers can be cascaded together to display the same high quality image on up to 64 HDMI LCDs or TVs and, because HDMI and DVI are backwards compatible, users can use HDMI to DVI or DVI to HDMI converters or cables for certain applications. Because of their versatility, HDMI splitter devices are frequently used in homes, offices, educational institutes, theaters, restaurants, military, and government facilities that need to connect audio/video HDMI equipment. They are optimal for use in sports bars, home theaters, and video gaming setups for media distribution as well as and commercial advertising.
