Easily route four 4K display sources (like a Blu-Ray player, satellite receiver, or game console) to two displays. Great solution for home theaters, HDTV retail, space centers, data control, presentations, schools, and corporate environments.
Output A features optical and analog Stereo output via Toslink or 3.5mm. Meaning you can break out the audio from whatever is playing on Output A to an external sound system.
Output B allows you to downscale the signal being sent out from 4k to 1080p if the display on this output only supports 1080p
This kit includes mounting hardware to mount it to a wall or cabinet, and 4 self-adhesive magnetic feet.
Works as advertised...just plug in and walla!
I agree with comments made by previous reviewer (Jeremy). The Spider doesn't maintain an EDID handshake to all inputs at all times. The simple task of changing a channel on my cable box breaks the optical (Toslink) digital feed requiring a reset of the receiving DAC. This is ridiculous - to think that this device cannot maintain a steady digital [optical] output. Now I have to design a work-around. Shame Sewell!!!
A: The product being shipped is not the product shown on this page. (As of 6/8/2020)
B: The product is simply a fancy dual switcher, not a true matrix. Never in my life have I used a matrix that doesn't maintain an EDID handshake to all inputs at all times. Any time you switch the source for an output it has to renegotiate with each relevant device. For a product that claims to let you switch "at will" it's an absolute joke. Might as well just have cables next to me I can just unplug and replug.
C: Can't seem to handle two simultaneous 4K inputs. Outputs start flickering and have horizontal striping frequently.
Save your time, just go to monoprice.
Spider, HDMI 4x2 Matrix
Works as it should.
