This 4-Port 4K 60Hz HDMI Automatic Switch lets you share an HDMI 2.0 display or projector with four HDMI 2.0 video sources. The switch features four independent video inputs that can each support 4K resolution at 60Hz, making it the perfect solution for connecting four video sources to a display that has a limited number of HDMI 2.0 ports.
The HDCP 2.2 HDMI switch lets you harness the High Dynamic Range (HDR) capability of your HDMI 2.0 video sources and deliver it to your UHD 4K60 display. Unlike many 4K switches that only support a 30Hz refresh rate, this switch works with HDMI 2.0 displays with output resolutions of up to 3840 x 2160p at 60Hz.
Don’t be fooled by a clever spin on old technology. Many HDMI switches support 4K but will only work at a 30Hz refresh rate, or claim support for 60Hz but heavily compress their signal to a lower 4:2:0 chroma subsampling to work at inferior bitrates. This 4K 60Hz HDMI switch uses the latest components to offer full support for your HDMI 2.0 equipment, supporting true 4K resolution at 60Hz with 4:4:4 chroma subsampling. Support for HDMI 2.0 devices means this switch can transmit bandwidth up to 18Gbps, making it ideal for high-resolution computer tasks.
4-Port 4K 60Hz HDMI Automatic Switch Review
The switch is backwards compatible with 4K 30Hz and 1080p displays, which ensures that it will work with lower resolution displays such as TVs or projectors around your site or in a digital signage application.
This switch ensures effortless operation with automatic switching that detects and selects a newly connected device. It’s perfect for automatically switching to a 4K media player such as a 4K UHD Blu-ray™ player as soon as it’s switched on. In your classroom or office boardroom, the automatic switch makes it easy to share your projector between multiple sources, which encourages on-the-fly collaboration among colleagues. The HDMI switch also supports manual operation, using the included IR remote control or the built-in front-panel toggle switch.
I found the overall build quality of this to be great and the ability to switch from one HDMI source was simple and easy. There was no pixelation and no interference at all with this unit.
I have one device that would not detect properly but this is a very old HDMI 1.0 source which may have had something to do with it. Every other product I tried worked perfectly and there was no degradation of image quality. If you have limited HDMI ports on your system or are like me and want a simple 1 cable connection to the tv and many devices to go input, this is a perfect little product. The box contains the switch, remote, and power adapter. On a side note, I used Startech HDMI cables for my hookup and again they worked perfectly.
Overall, the 4-Port 4K 60Hz HDMI Automatic Switch is a fantastic addition to any multi-device desk setup.
