Calrad's 3x1 HDMI mini switcher routes high definition video (in multiple resolutions up to 1080p) and digital audio from any one of the three sources to a video display unit. Three inputs accommodate the simultaneous connection of up to three high definition video sources, such as satellite systems and HD DVD players. The output sends the high definition audio/video signals to a high definition display. Aside from the manual switching, the 40-992 can also be controlled via the IR remote that is provided or the switcher will automatically switch to new source signals when other input devices are turned on. The compact design eliminates the bulk of an HDMI switcher while still having the same functionality. The 40-992 extends the range of HDMI compliant devices by equalizing and re-clocking the HDMI signal. Includes external remote IR receiver and remote control.
