The video 10-bit HDR pass through feature preserves the original audio and video supporting resolutions up to 4K2K@50/60Hz. Housed in rugged metal enclosures, both models support CEC bypass.
The 06HMDM0001 4K HDMI splitter distributes an HDMI 2.0 18Gbps signal from one HDMI source such as a camera, Blu-Ray, or digital signage player to four HDMI enabled displays, extenders, or recorders, supporting video output up to 4K2K@60Hz without data loss. The EDID switch function provides a choice of standard video and audio output or the settings of the display that is connected to HDMI Output 1.
