HDMI distribution amplifiers and splitters are designed and engineered to operate in commercial AV environments, but not limited to residential. Residential use of amplifiers and splitters are moderate, however commercial projects for restaurant bars, gymnasiums, sporting event venues, casinos, and stadiums are a few places boosting and splitting signals are great for. These types of applications grant the integrator the ability to cascade a signal using multiple amps and splitters.
Cascading a signal is basically waterfalling the same signal to different rooms in the facility using multiple units. In many cases, HDMI distribution amplifiers and splitters are HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection ) compliant with an EDID manager built in, however not all units are. Be sure that these features are included especially if your application involves connecting a new HDTV to cable boxes, DVD players or PC’s that require a secure connection to a compliant display.
Brands such as Atlona, Gefen, Kramer, Shinybow, Hall Research, TVOne and Magenta are leaders in the AV market developing superb distribution amplifiers and splitters. For more solutions, please contact a BZB Express representative if you have any questions regarding your application.
