LINDY launches 2 Port HDMI switch

Stockton-on-Tees, UK (12th April 2007) – LINDY Electronics today announced the launch of its new 2 Port HDMI Switch, a compact unit that allows 2 HDMI devices to be connected to a single HDMI or DVI input on a high definition TV, projector or other suitably equipped device.

The LINDY HDMI 2 Port Switch solves the common problem of having only one HDMI or DVI input on many of the display devices available today and removes the need for users to physically swap cables between HDMI/DVI input devices. Now users need only to press a button on the top of the unit’s neatly designed case.

Fully HDMI compliant, the unit utilises the same advanced digital switching technology as the LINDY 3 Port HDMI Switch Remote and therefore supports high definition video resolutions of up to 1080p, multi-channel digital audio and HDCP. However, its compact size and affordable price makes it suitable for use in many applications including demonstration, education, advertising and of course, home cinema installations.

“LINDY’s 3 Port HDMI Switch Remote very quickly became a best seller, which demonstrates that there is a real need for this type of product,” comments Stephen Fawcett, Senior Product Manager of LINDY Electronics. “But many applications only require two ports and, in some cases, a remote control is not really a necessity. To address this we are offering the same superior technology in a more compact and affordable unit to suit these applications and cater to a wider range of customers.”

The LINDY HDMI 2 Port switch is HDCP compliant and supports cable runs of up to 30m (15m in, 15m out). It comes complete with a 5V power supply.

Additional specifications:

• 2 year warranty
• HDMI 1.2, HDCP 1.1 and DVI 1.0 compliant
• Supports HDTV resolutions: 480i, 576i, 480p, 576p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p
• When used with computers, supports DVI-D resolutions of up to 1920 x 1200
• Supports multi-channel digital audio
• Input Ports: 2 x HDMI Female
• Output Port: 1 x HDMI Female
• The buffered output can run up to 15m @ 1600 x 1200
• Signal Enhancement function allows for improved signal quality over longer transmission distances
• LEDs to indicate channel selection, power and signal enhance
• Dimensions: 145 x 90 x 30mm

Notes to editors:

To connect devices equipped with DVI connections to the HDMI Switch, either modular DVI/HDMI adapters or DVI/HDMI adapter cables can be used.

The LINDY HDMI Switch - 2 Port, part no 32593 is available now, RRP £58.99.
