This compact 4X2 HDMI 1.4 1080p matrix switcher allows up to 4-HDMI ports to be switched to two independent displays. The two outputs can display different sources from different inputs simultaneously. The audio output, both Toslink and the stereo RCA out are associated with only the HDMI 1 output. The matrix switch is HDMI 1.4 compliant and supports all past HDMI versions. A separate audio output with both Toslink and line level RCA are tied to the HDMI 1 output.
Supports standard 24 bit color (RGB/YPbPr) and xvYCC color space
Supports DTS-HD, true-HD, LPCM7.1, AC3, DTS and DSD audio formats
Slim and compact size
Plug and play
A built-in RESET switch clears all features and reverts back to the initial default settings of inputs and outputs to be reset to "1."
Optional IR Extender Kits
This HDMI 1.4 rated compact 4X2 HDMI Matrix Switcher has four inputs and two outputs with built-in signal compensation allowing the matrix to be up to 15 feet 22 gauge HDMI cables from the source and 35 feet with 22 gauge HDMI cables from the display (using our 22 AWG cables).
Optionally, use the IR extender capability and control your source devices from the viewing location. The Unique Backward-IR Channel allows you to control devices at the viewing location from the source equipment location. The remote extender function utilizes the optional kit listed above, which includes a target, an HDMI target insertion adapter, and a flood emitter that should be placed across from the source components to be controlled. The target plugs into adapter at the end of the HDMI cable that connects it to the display (ensure the adapter is set to IR) and inserts IR over the HDMI cable back to the matrix. The emitters plug into the IR out jack on the matrix (labeled IR Ext). See pictures in the above MORE PICTURES Tab.
Here are the major enhancements introduced in the HDMI 1.4 specification:
HDMI Ethernet Channel: Adds high-speed networking to an HDMI link, allowing users to take full advantage of their IP-enabled devices without a separate Ethernet cable.
3D: Defines input/output protocols for major 3D video formats, paving the way for true 3D gaming and 3D home theater applications.
Content Type: Real-time signaling of content types between display and source devices, enabling a TV to optimize picture settings based on content type
Additional Color Spaces: Adds support for additional color models used in digital photography and computer graphics.

NOTE: There is one Optical & one Analog R/L Audio Output associated with HDMI input #1 which separates the HDMI audio from the HDMI audio data-stream to wire to an amp, BOSE system, headphones, etc. The optical audio format is based on the HDMI Output-A. If the sync device is a widescreen, HDTV or Projector connected to Output A it will output only stereo audio as that is what the EDID of what the widescreen TV's are unless the widescreens EDID is 5.1 Dolby. The digital output will also be PCM stereo audio.
HDTV Supply is a leader in supplying 3D equipment for this new, fast growing 3DTV market. Our test lab includes the latest equipment for designing, testing and supporting 3D video equipment. The chips sets we use support the below 3D formats and work with many of our HDMI 1.3 and HDMI 1.4 compliant devices. This 4X2 HDMI 1.4 1080p Matrix switcher supports these 3D formats:
Side-by-Side 3D Format
Top-and-Bottom 3D Format
Blu-ray 3D Format
We not only test this 4X2 HDMI 1.4 1080p Matrix switcher with lab equipment we also test many of our 3D devices with 3D products you are likely to use:
Sony PS3 with the 3D 3.41 firmware
Samsung model PN50C7000YF 3DTV
Samsung model BD-C6900 3D Blu-ray player FORCED to 1080p
Samsung model SSG-P2100T 3D glasses
DirecTV models HR21-100 and the HR24 high definition receiver.
It works with all HDMI devices including the new 3D units.
The 3D viewing results were awesome in our lab and did not have any picture or audio degradation. The normal and standard (2D) results equally exhibited a superb picture quality.
Q: On the front panel of this unit there is a plug labeled ir ext. what products would this be for? Obviously it is for Infrared Extension but specifically how to use? Is it input or output or both and what equipment is needed? I am using the Easy IR Extender Kit 1 Zone already successfully for my second zone with this unit and it works well.
A: "EXT" means extender, not external. IR control signals are serial-packets of pulses received from your remote. Becus they are serial, they only need 2 wires to deliver the pulses. Extender modules relay this signal, sometimes by radio from other rooms to your unit, so it is an INPUT on the HDMI switcher. So you would plug your IR-rcvr unit into it.
Any IR repeater system will work. They all have a 2-pole 1/8" plug that plugs into whatever amp or switcher your want to control. My favorite IR system was Radio Shacks Pyramid. The pyramid shaped modules were dark red plastic w/wall wart supplies, but were battery capable. You set up the sender unit from where you control things; master BR or media room, and plug the receiver into the amp/switcher. It would repeat any IR signal aimed at it.
The remote extender function utilizes the optional kit listed above, which includes a target, HDMI target insertion adapter, and flood emitter that should be placed across from the source components to be controlled. The target plugs into adapter at the end of the HDMI cable that connects to the display (ensure the adapter is set to IR), and inserts IR over the HDMI cable back to the matrix. The emitters plug into the IR out jack on the matrix (labeled IR Ext).
Q: I don't get 3D with DirecTVs new firmware dated March 2012, what do I do?
A: When you first connect it it may say your TV is not 3D so disconnect the HDMI cable (needs to be HDMI 1.4a rated due to the bandwidth needed by 3D)from the TV and then connect it back to the switch and you will get a picture from both outputs 1 and 2. Then power the switch down and turn it back on and the pic was still be in 3D and ready to go.
