The 5×2 HDMI Distribution Amplifier allow users to simultaneously show the same HD video to 2 displays via HDMI at full 1080P resolution.
In addition, a Digital Toslink Audio output is provided. The Digital Toslink Audio Output ‘couples’ audio data from the HDMI data stream.

The advantage is that users can easily integrate the 5×2 HDMI Distribution Amplifiers with pre-existing Surround Sound Audio Equipment that has no HDMI audio capability.
HDMI is the latest standard for distributing High Definition Digital Video and Audio in high def displays for 2 reasons: 1) uncompressed digital format ensures the best picture quality and 2) HDMI allows content providers to ensure that their intellectual property is protected through HDCP.
