AVIOR, the custom installation line for IOGEAR, has announced four and eight port versions of 3D-ready AV switchers.
Designed to give installers flexibility with 3D technology in their commercial and residential AV projects, the switchers allow up to eight additional HDMI devices to be connected to a single display.
AVIOR’s new rack-mountable 4×1 and 8×1 HDMI switchers provide HD and 3D switching between devices such as DVRs, set-top boxes, Blu-ray and DVD players, game consoles, media servers, computers, and more, on a single connected display. Both versions support 1080p with deep color as well as Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio. For control, the HDMI switchers provide a built in serial port with RS-232 bi-directional capabilities along with front panel pushbutton and IR remote control.
The new AVIOR HDMI Audio/Video Splitters are also four and eight port devices, but instead take HD audio/video from a single HDMI source and direct it to as many as eight separate HD TVs or displays with 3D support. Also HDCP compliant, the units support the highest quality HD video and multi-channel digital audio; enabling the splitting of HD content from DVR/Set-top boxes, Blu-Ray players, computers and other HD or non HD devices.
The 4-Port HD Audio/Video Splitter (GHSP8114) cascades up to three levels supporting up to 64 HDMI signals, while the 8-Port HD Audio/Video Splitter (GHSP8118) cascades up to three levels supporting up to 512 HDMI signals.
“As AV systems get more complex, we need devices that connect components together and streamline access to content, making the user experience as fluid as possible,” said Bill Nguyen, senior marketing manager at IOGEAR. “Our AVIOR switchers work with the most advanced 3D displays and HDMI components to provide connectivity options for a variety of settings, potentially saving resources and headaches for installers.”
