The SwitchDeck supports signals up to 4K@60Hz, and allows you to switch between five HDMI sources to one HDMI display.
It is also an "active" HDMI switcher (aka distribution amplifier) which means that it actively amplifies and equalizes the input signal in order to perform at maximum spec. This signal amplification means that you can use longer HDMI cables and achieve optimal results.
This version of the switchdeck features "on/off auto switching" to assure compatibility with a greater range of setups. Meaning you can set it to only switch manually, or set it to switch automatically.
The main spec to look for in a true HDMI 2.0 switch (including HDMI 2.0a and HDMI 2.0b) is the bandwidth spec. In order to achieve full 4K@60Hz 4:4:4 chroma, the HDMI Switch needs to support 18 Gbps bandwidth.
4K@60Hz vs 4K@30Hz?
As our TV's get bigger, so does their ability to display higher refresh rates. The SwitchDeck supports 4K@60Hz, while older switches only support up to 4k@30Hz, but why should you care?
HDCP 2.2 Compliance
The SwitchDeck is fully compliant with HDCP 2.2 which means that it does not strip or bypass HDCP.
It is important to note that the new HDCP 2.2 standard is not backwards compatible with previous versions of HDCP. This means that if one of the devices in your setup does not support HDCP 2.2, you will not be able to get a 4k@60Hz signal on your display. You will only be able to get up to 1080p.
