Home theater fans often need a bunch of different adapters and accessories to get their system working exactly how they want it to work. If you want a home theater with the same image on multiple screens for a video wall, you need some sort of splitter. Gefen has announced a new splitter called the 1:4 Splitter for HDMI with FST and 3D.
The splitter comes in white or black colors and can be wall mounted. It has a single HDMI input and four HDMI outputs. It works with HDCP for protected Blu-ray content and splits the source to four different screens with no loss in resolution or video quality. The splitter supports pass-through of 3D video and lossless audio formats.
Supported audio formats include LPCM 7.1 audio, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio. The splitter can split HDMI out to DVI monitors using an adapter. The firmware on the device can be upgraded via an integrated USB port. The device measures 3" W x 9" H x 1" D and weighs about three pounds. It ships with a single male to male 6-foot long HDMI cable and the user has to add the four other cables to finish the setup. The splitter is available right now for $299.
