- HDMI splitter for signal distribution from 2 feed players to 4 end devices such as TV, monitor, video projector, AV receiver
- With HDMI Audio Extractor to output the sound of the source or TV Audio Return Channel via SPDIF Toslink (stereo, DTS, Dolby Digital 5.1) and 3.5 mm jack (only with stereo, not with ARC)
- Free assignment of HDMI inputs and outputs (e.g. 2 sources on 2 displays each, or 1 source on 4 displays), HDMI outputs can be specifically switched on and off, control via remote control or buttons
- Supports Ultra-HD 4K 60Hz YUV 4:4:4, RGB (up to 18 Gbps) as well as HDR including Dolby Vision, supports HDMI-CEC and HDCP 2.2
- Supports all sound formats via HDMI, depending on the set audio EDID (pass, 2.0 stereo or 5.1 sound) and the end devices (Dolby Atmos and HD sound formats are supported in pass mode)
With this HDMI matrix switch 2×4 you supply up to 4 HDMI sinks such as TVs, beamers and AV receivers. The sound system can also be connected via SPDIF / Toslink or audio analogue. There are 2 inputs for HDMI sources. You can freely assign all connections, e.g. output of HDMI source 1 via output 1 to 3 and simultaneous output of HDMI source 2 to output 4. The matrix thus replaces a 4-fold splitter, an audio extractor and a 2-fold switch at the same time. The HDMI switch is fully compatible with all video resolutions up to Ultra-HD (maximum 4096×2160 at 60 Hz) as well as HDR10, HLG-HDR and Dolby Vision. At the two 3.5 mm jack outputs, the Audio Extractor provides the sound for headphones or hi-fi system if the source is currently playing stereo sound. For this purpose, you can switch the audio EDID to 2.0. With higher formats or active ARC, the outputs remain muted. The switch delivers the sound via the two SPDIF Toslink outputs if the source is playing stereo, Dolby Digital or DTS. This means a maximum of 5.1 sound as bitstream. If this is the desired audio format, set 5.1 on the switch. Playback also works for TV sound when ARC is active. All formats can be transmitted via HDMI, i.e. also Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos, DTS-HD. The source and the HDMI sinks must of course support the format - and signal this via EDID.
Please note that many players adhere to the HDMI specification and only output formats supported by the HDMI sinks. For example, Apple TV will only output 4K Dolby Vision with Dolby Atmos sound if ALL connected HDMI sinks support it. So if you connect a projector, HD sound is then no longer possible. With some other HDMI sources, you can set the video and audio format manually. This depends on both the device and the app/software running on it. The EDID management of the VMS02400 can overwrite the information of the HDMI sinks in the audio area. Therefore, the sound output can be limited to stereo or increased to 5.1 sound formats (Dolby Digital, DTS). The 3 modes 2.0, 5.1 and PASS serve this purpose. Higher sound formats are only possible if all detected HDMI sinks support this. For this purpose, the PASS mode is selected.
If 2 TVs are connected to HDMI output 1 and 2, their internal sound (receiver tuner or app) can be output to the two SPDIF outputs - even at the same time if you have 2 sound systems in separate rooms. The ARC function (Audio Return Channel) is used for this purpose. In ARC mode, the two analogue audio outputs remain muted.
