Octava 4×2 HDMI Cross Switch for HD Theater

Norcross, Ga. – Octava Inc., specialists in HDMI solutions, announced the release of a Dual Output 4×2 HDMI Cross Switch. This unique product allows Home theater owners with dual displays to switch between 2 displays or create a “picture by “picture” effect.

As the price of flat panel technology continues to drop, many home theater enthusiasts will install multiple displays. For example, high-end home theater owners may install large Front Projection DLP for “weekend viewing” of movies and a smaller Flat Panel Display ( Plasma, LCD) for daily use.

Octava’s Picture-By-Picture 4×2 HDMI Cross switch is designed for Dual Display Theater systems. This unique 4×2 HDMI Cross Switch has 2 outputs and 4 Inputs and supports Full 1080P, and V1.3 standards . The Cross switch allows users to create a “Picture By Picture” system. The “picture by picture feature allows viewing of 2 different video sources simultaneously. For example, you may watch a sporting program on a large Projector and watch a second different program on a secondary display.

In addition, the 2 Outputs allow users to switch between 2 displays. Owners of large screen front projectors system and flat panel display can easily select which display they wish to view. For example, “day to day” HD programming can be switched to the LCD and “weekend viewing” (movies, major sporting events) can be switched to the Projector system thus allowing the user to share video sources and cut down projector bulb “wear and tear”

The outputs of the HDMI Cross Switch can be independently selected from 4 video inputs. The HDMI Cross switch does not “split” the input to both displays, which merely shows same video on both display. The significant advantage of the HDMI Cross Switch is flexibility such as “picture by picture” viewing, independent EDID communication between display and source, and Dual Display switching which maximizes user flexibility.

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.
