The 2:8 HDMI Distribution Amplifier is the perfect solution for anyone who needs to send one or two sources of digital high definition video to multiple displays at the same time. It supports all HDMI equipment, such as DVD players and satellite set top boxes and all HDMI displays. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a digital point-to-point interface for audio and video signals. In operation, the digital source is connected to the distribution amplifier on one side. On the other side, eight HDMI outputs are available to be used in part or in full. Once the unit is connected and powered, your source is routed to up to eight digital displays at the same time. For home theater applications, the unit is HDCP (high bandwidth digital content protection) compliant, making it effective for use with all HDMI displays. HDCP is a standard key"" encoded into the HDMI signal to prevent video data from being pirated. HDCP was strongly endorsed by the entertainment industry. If a source device is HDCP coded and is connected to a HDMI display or projector via HDMI without the proper HDCP decoding mechanism, the picture is relegated to ""snow"" or in some cases, a very low (480P) resolution. In order to see protected content, the source, the display and any device in between must be equipped with HDMI connections that can enable HDCP using ""software key"" decoding.
