The Zektor HDS4 is a 4 device HDTV 1080p component video switcher. The HDS4 component video switcher is capable of switching 4 sources of component video, digital audio (coax and optical), and analog audio, all with the convenience of IR remote controllability. It's flexible inputs and passive switch contacts allow for switching of 5 wire video formats such as VGA (RGBHV), as well as reverse operation (1 source to 4 outputs).

Here are the features and benefits of the Zektor HDS4 component switcher...
The component switcher has a Passive Switching Design. The video and analog audio signals pass through Silver Alloy with Gold plating relay contacts and in/out connector. The benefit of this is zero amplifier noise, zero gain or loss, and plenty of bandwidth for the upcoming 1080p signals. The impedance controlled design provides the same quality as a direct cable bypass. All internal signal lengths have been matched to eliminate any signal delay errors. All inactive inputs are 75 ohm terminated to reduce cross talk, and to greatly reduce the possibility of spurious noise pickup on any unused inputs. The passive design also allows signals to be routed backwards through the switch, allowing up to four display devices to be switched to one source.
Component Video, L/R Analog Audio, Digital Audio on Coax (SPDIF) / Optical Digital Audio (Toslink) are available on each input.
Optical (Toslink) and Coax (SPDIF) are both automatically converted. When either input is active, both signals are available on the outputs.
The Left and Right Analog Audio inputs use the same passive design as the Component video inputs. This allows them to also be used for high bandwidth signals such as RGBHV or VGA (some adapters to RCA plugs would be needed).
Controllable using any Universal Remote. Control the HDS4 using any universal remote by selecting from a small list of existing manufacturer command codes, or by teaching the HDS4 to use any unused buttons on your existing remote. There's no need to use a learning remote control (though the HDS4 will work fine with one); the HDS4 can be taught to use any unused buttons on your existing remote control. We can give you the Pronto .ccf file if you use that remote or can input those codes like the MX-700/MX-800 can.
Remote Control interface allows: Power Toggle, Bright/Dim/Auto Display Modes, Direct Channel Selection, Channel Up, Channel Down and for better integration with universal remotes with macro capabilities Power On, and Power Off are also available.
Auto Dimming Display. The LED indicator lights can be set to Bright, Dim, or Auto mode. Auto mode will fade the LED's to half power after a channel is selected.
Full Size shielded Metal Enclosure for better integration into your system. (17"W x 6.5"D x 1.75"H).
Available in Black and Silver! Include $25 for rack mount ears and $76.93 for a factory installed RS-232 module.
One-year, no-hassle warranty.
