Norcross, Ga. – Octava Inc., specialists in HDMI distribution equipment, announced the release of a Dual Output HDMI Splitter Distribution Amplifier. The 1×2 HDMI Distribution Amplifier allows Home theater enthusiasts to deliver 2 HD video and audio streams to 2 HD displays simultaneously via HDMI.
As the price of flat panel technology continues to drop, many home theater enthusiasts will install multiple displays. The 1×2 Distribution Amplifier solves the need to distribute and display HDMI video and audio to both displays allowing users to fully utilize their HD displays and sources.
Octava’s 1×2 HDMI Distribution Amplifier is designed for Dual Display Theater systems. The 1×2 HDMI Distribution Amplifier has 2 HDMI Outputs that allow users to simultaneously show the same HD video and audio 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 1×2 Distribution Amplifier processes the HDMI data and outputs the audio via Toslink Audio while leaving the HDMI signals ( both audio and video) available to both HDMI outputs. The advantage is that users can easily integrate the 1×2 HDMI Distribution Amplifier with pre-existing Surround Sound Audio Equipment that has no HDMI audio capability.
Octava Inc., provides a full line of HDMI switch that allow users to multiplex between multiple HDMI sources. The 1×2 Distribution Amplifier complements the HDMI switch capability by allowing users to “split and distribute” multiple HDMI source to 2 HD displays.
