Overview

The SwitchDeck (5x1 HDMI Switch) supports signals up to 4K@60Hz, and allows you to switch between five HDMI sources to one HDMI display.

Note: Sewell HDMI Switches are all HDCP compliant which means that they do not strip or bypass HDCP. The SwitchDeck supports all versions of HDCP up to HDCP 2.2.


5x1 Distribution Amplifier

The SwitchDeck is an active 4K HDMI switcher (aka distribution amplifier) which means that it actively amplifies and equalizes the input signal in order to perform at maximum spec. This signal amplification means that you can use longer HDMI cable and achieve optimal results.

HDMI 2.0

The main spec to look for in a true HDMI 2.0 switch (including HDMI 2.0a and HDMI 2.0b) is the bandwidth spec. In order to achieve full 4K@60Hz 4:4:4 chroma, the HDMI Switch needs to support 18 Gbps bandwidth.

Why you would want 4K@60Hz vs 4K@30Hz?

As our TV's get bigger, so does their ability to display higher refresh rates. The SwitchDeck supports 4K@60Hz, while older switches only support up to 4k@30Hz, but why should you care?

HDCP 2.2 Compliance

The SwitchDeck is fully compliant with HDCP 2.2, but it is important to note that the new HDCP 2.2 standard is not backwards compatible with previous versions of HDCP.

This means that if one of the devices in your setup does not support HDCP 2.2, you will not be able to get a 4k@60Hz signal on your display. You will only be able to get up to 1080p.

Does exactly what it claims to...

Pros: Works perfectly, switches quickly, super simple design

Cons: None I've uncovered...

Other: I went through two other manufacturers' cheap hdmi switches before I finally settled upon sewell's. The first two each had extraordinary unusual behavior with certain types of devices, especially those that can take power from the switch like older Chromecast devices, etc... I also suspect that in some cases redmere cables might have also exacerbated the issues. Sewell's switch, on the other hand, worked perfectly first try, with only one slight ssue where my TiVo does not recognize that it has video out except when I reboot it and ensure the switch is switched to the TiVo, but I'm pretty sure this has to do with the tivo's hdcp copy protection implementation. If it's booted while the switch has the TiVo selected and I switch it immediately back in the event that the switch auto selects the next operational input, everything works exactly as it should. If, however, I just reboot the TiVo and don't pay attention to the fact that the switch switched away from the TiVo as the TiVo signal dropped, the TiVo usually will have no operational signal at that point until I reboot it again. I think at least once I have been able to power the switch off and back on to convince the TiVo that essentially a cable was plugged it back in and that solved it. The only feature I would request sewell Implement in their products is the ability to turn off automatic input switching to alleviate some of these types of issues.

This worked

Pros: I had tried a lot of combinations of things to get my Roku to do 4k HDR. It is very quirky and would only work with a shorter HDMI cable. I have some good HDMI cables and bought a new 30' HDMI for my Roku that was supposed to work. It didn't. Anyways my point is that I think Roku 4k HDR is a pretty good test. This box passed it. I really am happy that it worked and that I could hook up 5 4k HDR devices to this. My equipment is in a closet behind my TV so I try to maximize my HDMIs. This works great and the price is great.

Cons: None.

Other: Would be nice to have an RF remote.

Great product

Pros: Great quality, it out-performs most of the high end AVR internal 4K HDMI switches when it comes to pushing 4K 60fps/10bit color on over 15ft of HDMI cable run.

Cons: Dish Network receiver (Non 4K): It will not auto switch when you have a DSN receiver as one of your sources. The DSN receiver technically remains in "Standby" mode displaying commercials, as the switch still sees an active stream.

High Quality Video (4k@60)

Rodrigo Sala - 3/29/2018 2:12:21 PM

This switch provides excellent video quality. I was searching everywhere for a switch that could handle 4k at 60 fps. Most switches were outside my budget but someone recommended Sewell on the AVS forum. My use case was to connect my 4k equipment to my 4k without using my old non-4k Denon receiver. Worked perfectly!!!

HDMI switch works fine

- 2/19/2018 6:49:30 PM

Switches cleanly with each button press, and I was surprised to see it switch automatically to the DVD/BD player when it was powered on. Signal quality through it seems undiminished.
