HDMI – Making the most of a good thing Thursday 17 May 2007 PDF Print LINDY launches 8 Port HDMI Splitter Stockton-on-Tees, UK (17th May 2007) – LINDY Electronics today announced the launch of its new 8 Port HDMI Splitter that will enable users to connect up to eight HDMI or DVI equipped display devices to a single High Definition source such as a set top box, DVD player or computer. The LINDY 8 Port HDMI Splitter supports HDTV resolutions of up to1080p with multi channel digital audio and can be used with cable runs of up to 30m. It is HDMI 1.2 and DVI 1.0 compliant and has a built in EDID simulator and HDCP key-set, which allows each output to function independently. The Splitter will be particularly useful in retail showroom installations where it can be used to distribute HD signals to the many display devices on show. Its neat and compact design also makes it ideal for use in domestic as well as commercial installations. “Whenever I visit audiovisual showrooms I am often surprised and slightly disappointed that although there is usually an impressive display of HDTVs, very few of them are actually displaying an HD signal,” comments Stephen Fawcett, Senior Product Manager of LINDY Electronics. “It makes sense for them to have a limited number of HD sources, but if they used the LINDY HDMI Splitter, which can be cascaded up to 3 levels, they would potentially have 22 outputs from a single source. This, together with its support for long cable runs, would make it the perfect answer to enable them show off their products in all of their glory.” For installations that require the same high specification but with fewer ports, LINDY has also released a 4 port version of the LINDY HDMI Splitter.
