The SplitDeck HDMI Splitters support full HDMI 2.0 specs, meaning resolutions up to 4K@60Hz, 4:4:4 Chroma, and HDR. This means the SplitDecks can send a signal with those specs to 2, 4 or 8 HDMI displays.
Note:All SplitDecks are HDCP compliant which means that they do not strip or bypass HDCP. The SplitDecks support all versions of HDCP up to HDCP 2.2.
The SplitDeck is an active splitter which amplifies and equalizes the input signal in order to perform at maximum spec. The signal amplification lets you use longer HDMI cables and achieve optimal results. This also means that if you are running multiple displays with different resolutions, the splitter will send the lowest "common" resolution to all displays.
For example: If you have a 4k and a 1080p TV, the splitter will send 1080p to both unless you use a downscaler between the splitter and the 1080p TV to "trick" the Splitter into thinking both displays support 4k.
4K@30Hz VS 4K@60Hz
The main spec to look for when trying to find a true-HDMI 2.0 splitter (also including HDMI 2.0a and HDMI 2.0b) is the bandwidth spec-- it should be 18 Gbps. If an HDMI splitter passes this bandwidth, it can achieve full 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 chroma.
Product as described.
Works as advertised, thanks Sewell!
getting ready to place another order
No instructions came with the splitter except for a paragraph about pressing the V-ADV button for three seconds to enable HDR, HLG, or Dolby vision connected to output 1. I skipped output 1 and connected 3 television sets to outputs 2,3 and 4. When the splitter decides to work, I can turn all three sets on in any order. When the splitter is feeling cantankerous, I have to keep changing the order that I turn the TV sets on. If one way doesn't work, I have to turn all three sets off, and then change the sequence that I turn them on. If that doesn't work, I have to turn them off again and change the ON sequence. Also, when one or two TVs are on and another is turned on, all TVs loose pictures for a number of seconds. Raymond Warren
