Normal HDMI switches only allow you to switch between multiple sources (like a Blu Ray player, gaming console, cable box, etc) using a single display. The IBIS is a bi-directional switch, meaning it allows you to switch between multiple sources on a single display OR switch between multiple displays from a single source.
The IBIS supports full HDCP pass-through, so you don't need to worry about data encryption issues. A simple push-button design lets you easily move from one source to the other. The two indicator LED's let you know which source is active.
A Must-have for PS4 Pro + PSVR
If you have a PS4 Pro and the PSVR you might already know that you can’t have the PSVR headset plugged in when you want to watch HDR content because the PSVR strips off the HDR. So every time you want HDR you have to unplug the PSVR and plug in the PS4 directly to the TV. With the IBIS you can simply switch with the push of a button.
Getting the Right Cables
Do you have all the right devices and still not reaching full specs? You may not have the right cables! Important to any setup is making sure that you have the right cables for the right specifications. Check out the Silverback S6 HDMI cables with full support for resoultions up to 4k@60hz, deep color, and 4:4:4 chroma.
Note: Splitters vs. Switches
An HDMI switch will take multiple sources and allow you to choose which single source will be displayed on the TV. Wheras an HDMI splitter will duplicate a single HDMI source on multiple HDMI displays.
