Transformative Engineering‘s new HDS-12i Intelligent HDMI one-to-two splitter has the ability to mix output resolutions with both up- and down-scaling. This affordably priced device provides full-function, 1.4a HDMI compliant audio/video distribution from one HD or 4K source to any combination of two HD and 4K displays. In a typical set-up, it might support a 4K projector and separate 1080p flat screen.

The HDS-12i provides full HDCP security and EDID protocol integrity, and it also recognizes an independent EDID for each connected display. Clock Stretch technology ensures compatibility with older HDMI devices. Output 2 offers a pass-through mode, selectable signal scaling or AVR mode, which provides a 4K and 3D bypass solution for legacy AV processors and receivers that lack these technologies.
The HDS-12i also incorporates a trigger connection for use with Transformative Engineering’s CCA-1 contact closure adapter to provide feedback to advanced control systems.
As with all of Transformative Engineering’s HDMI products, the HDS-12i is firmware upgradable via a USB-Mini connector.
Transformative Engineering HDS-12i is backed by a three-year warranty. It is now shipping to TE dealers, and it has a suggested retail price of $299.
