The Gefen 1:10 Distribution Amplifier for HDMI 1.3 is the perfect solution for anyone who needs to send one source of digital high definition video to multiple HDMI displays at the same time. It supports all HDMI equipment such as DVD players, satellite set top boxes and HDMI displays.
For home theater applications, the unit is HDCP (High bandwidth Digital Content Protection) compliant, making it capable of use with all HDMI displays. HDCP is a standard "key" encoded into the HDMI signal to prevent video data from being pirated. HDCP is 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. The Gefen 1:10 Distribution Amplifier for HDMI 1.3 decodes HDCP properly for a flawless viewing experience.
