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.
We needed something more reliable after our last 4K Splitter failed. One bonus feature that we didn't have with a different brand is that the audio is included through the 4k splitter. We have multiple different size screens and distances coming out of the splitter including the Sewell HDMI over Cat and everything words great together.
The only reason why I won't give 5 stars is because when you plug in a new HDMI into one of the outputs the entire system flash black for a second or two.
We are sorry to hear you're unhappy with the flashback that occurs when a new HDMI is plugged in. The unit has to reset when a new output is plugged in to adjust and properly output to that device which is why you see that flashback buffer occur.

This product is spectacular! I now have these throughout my entire home. They work great to split the hdmi signal from your device and send it to other TV’s throughout your home with no latency issues.
Product as described.
Works as advertised, thanks Sewell!
