HDMI Switch - 5 Ports/Inputs / 1 Output
The Loops HDMI switch is a great buy for anyone running out of HDMI sockets on their TV, or simply wanting to clean up the clutter behind their entertainment centre.
Simultaneously connect 5 HD devices to 1 input and easily switch between them.
1) Automatic switching, see 'smart function' below
2) Reduces cable clutter
3) Simple plug and play operation
4) Power cable not required, however depending on the strength of signal and length of cable, you may need to use the power cable (supplied). Providing your HDMI cables are 15 metres or less in length, the power cable should not be required.
5 Inputs with 1 Simple Output - You can attach up to 5 HD devices to the box and only have one HDMI lead to connect to your TV.
Smart Function - When there is more than 1 HD device connected to the HDMI switch, the switch will automatically select the device that is powered on as the main source. If more than 1 device is powered on, the switch will select the device which was powered on last. Therefore, simply turning off the power to the devices that are not required, will force the switch to choose the desired device. Powering a device off is different to putting it into standby.
Manual Selection - The input device can be manually selected by using the 'source selection' button.
Speed - The Loops switch transfers data at a speed of up to 10.2GB/s. It is capable of streaming Full HD 1080p resolution video as well as the latest HD audio formats. Compatible with current standards such as Deep Colour, Lip Sync and xvYCC to perform, as well as being HDCP and DVI compatible.
Build Quality – The connectors on the Loops switch are made from a solid metal alloy for durability and have a 24 carat gold plating. Gold plated connectors provide a better signal transmission and ensure minimal loss of quality. The Loops switch box has an outer metal case and features a sleek powder coated finish.
Technical - The Loops switch box has been designed to make the signal journey as smooth and short as possible. The Loops switch box equalizes and amplifies to ensure no loss of signal transmission when using long cables (up to 15 metres). When the power supply is in use, lengths up to 20 metres can be achieved. The connectors used are type A. Type A is the most commonly used connector and is used in Sky HD Boxes, PS3s and most HD ready plasma and LCD televisions.
The splitter box works with the following devices: Playstation 3, Blu Ray Disc, HD ready TVs, Sky HD, HD DVD and many more with a standard HDMI connection!
