Overview

Normal 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.


IBIS Connection

The IBIS supports full HDCP passthrough, 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.

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.


Need HDR on PS4 Pro+PSVR?

This IBIS Only supports 4K@30Hz 4:4:4 and 4K@60Hz 4:2:0. If you need a switch that can handle the 4k@60hz HDR from a PS4 PRO, check out the new IBIS PRO. The IBIS PRO supports 4k@60hz 4:4:4.

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.

Keeps flickering and loosing the image

Pros: Small

Cons: Not working most of the time. About once or twice every minute the picture disappears for 1 or two seconds, and sometimes longer while turning the screen completely white. I've tried switching between the ports as one other reviewer suggested but it's not working. I had this shipped to Sweden, paying a total of over $60 and it would cost over $40 to return it, so sadly it's just a worthless piece of expensive plastic for me.

Other: Not working as suggested. I wanted to use it to get around the problem with PSVR not supporting HDR pass-through, but it's unusable, sadly.

Excellent for PS4 Pro & PSVR combination

Pros: - Works as advertised for PS4 Pro / PSVR - Small - Rubber antislip pad on the bottom - Doesn't require an external power source

Cons: - Does not work with every HDMI cable - No way of telling which HDMI cables are compatible

Other: At first I panicked. After waiting 3 weeks to receive this Switch (I live in the Netherlands) the picture kept losing signal every 10 seconds. This was even with the 1 feet + 3 feet Silverback S6 Premium HDMI Cable combination which I bought from Sewell Dirtect. Luckily I had a lot of spare HDMI cables at home and with a lot of different setup combinations the frequency at which the image was losing signal varied a lot. This confirmed to me that the problem was cable related and not Switch related. There seems to be no logic to which cable works best. Sometimes long budget HDMI cables gave a more stable signal than short Premium HDMI cables, but eventually i got it working a 100% of the time. Without going in to much details i can confirm that this switch works and does what it advertises to do. I got it working by hooking up using the following way. PS4 Pro --> 1meter/3 foot HDMI cable (from a standalone Sony Blu Ray Player which I don't use anymore) --> IBIS switch --> 1meter/3 foot HDMI Cable (from Nintendo Wii-U) to TV HDMI input 1 And another 1meter/3 foot HDMI budget cable from IBIS switch to TV HDMI input 2 My assumption is that u need to use a HDMI calble which will feed the IBIS switch enough power since it doesn't use an external power source. I don't know how to check for this on a HDMI cable so it's a little 'trial and error' to figure out which cables to us. But 'Premium' and shorter lenght HDMI cables doesn't alway give better results. Bottom line: The switch iself works flawlessly. If your experiencing signal loss you should use other HDMI cables.

Pros: It looks nice.

Cons: I can't get it to work any of the 8 pairs of HDMI 2.0 cables I' ve brought in various size. Just keep blinking on most never getting a picture. If this device only work with the cable from here please sell it all together as I just realized you sell cables specifically for it.

Other: Fast shipping. Like I said I can't get it to work.
