Transformative Engineering has introduced a HDMI Conditioner/Splitter, a new type of device that is designed to resolve HDMI component and cable interface issues, and to simplify the connection of multiple displays to a single source.
Transformative Engineering’s HDMI Conditioner/Splitter is designed to resolve HDMI component and cable interface issues.
The Transformative Engineering two-way HDS-12 and four-way HDS-14 both incorporate T-E’s exclusive “HDCP Stabilization” circuitry to provide a solution for troublesome HDCP reliability issues when used with certain audio/video components, displays and cable boxes.
Known as a difficult protocol for long-length connectivity, HDMI can sometimes be unreliable if strict guidelines are not followed, Transformative says. The HDMI Conditioner function of these devices works to “clean up” unstable HDCP identifier markers to allow for consistent display of High Definition signals and compliance with the most advanced HDMI specifications.
Powered by an included 5-volt supply, these state of the art splitters provide for ARC (Audio Return Channel), CEC, and HEC (Home Ethernet Connection), as well as all current HDMI features such as 3D, High Speed, 2Kx4K, and XV Color. The larger HDS-14 also incorporates unique EDID selection circuitry to allow for resolution assignment and sharing, IR routing, and a Firmware update via USB port.
According to Transformative Engineering president Jay Trieber, “We are not aware of any product that offers this combination of HDMI features and HDCP stabilization circuitry. Over the last two months we have field-tested these devices and in virtually every case by inserting these splitters into the signal path we have resolved what had been considered ‘insurmountable’ problems in various HDMI installations. We believe that this ‘conditioning splitter’ represents a new product category.”
Transformative Engineering will begin delivering limited quantities of these new HDMI Conditioner/Splitters this month.
