5 AMAZING FEATURES:
BI-DIRECTIONAL SWITCHER (2 x 1 / 1 x 2): The switch has a button on top of it and two (2) LED indicator lights. The button actually allows you to choose one of two modes: whether you transmit signal from one appliance to the other two or the other way around. This means that this switcher is bi-directional – the HDMI signal can go either way.
The image 1.1 is quite regular for HDMI splitters: you connect one video source (laptop, TV box, DVD player) and the signal gets split and transmitted to two (2) different appliances (TV sets, usually).
This image 1.2 is different: two devices (DVD player and a gaming console, for instance) are plugged into the switcher and the signal goes to one TV set. That means that you won’t have to change cables if you want to connect another device.
LONG DISTANCE TRANSMISSION: The input and output cables can reach up to five (5) meters. Even when cables are that long, there are no signal loss or data transmission problems. The cables always maintain their high bandwidth of 3.4Gbps. The maximum operating current is 15ma and V1.4 HDMI switch is compliant with all HDMI specification V1.0, V1.1, V1.2, V1.3, V1.4.
EASY OPERATION: Easy installation and operation. Supports HDMI Plug and Play. No external power required. The connection is made only via HDMI cables. Connect two HDMI sources to one HDMI display or connect one HDMI source to toggle between two displays.
WIDE APPLICABILITY: Due to HDMI capture, it supports all kinds of video formats, like 3D, 1080p, 2K x 4K resolution, and also HD audio. Works with all devices fitted with an HDMI port, such as PCs, laptops, gaming consoles, XBox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, projectors, TV receivers, TVs and more.

The HDMI switcher just switches the signal and it does not have an external power supply. The input device must have electric current input for the HDMI to work properly. (Most of the play devices with HDMI interface are connected with an external power supply, HDMI output interface will have electric current ).
In order for either to work/display on the TV, both devices (TV, DVD player, and a gaming console, for instance) have to be powered on all the time.
If the HDMI switcher does not work, please check your input device whether, with external power, the use of the connection wire is consistent with the requirements of the standard wire.
There is no need to worry about visuals and audio characteristics, the HDMI bi-direction switch provides lossless signal transmission, both audio and video.
Cables are not included in the package.
Q: What cable do I need to buy to go with this?
Three (3) AWG26 HDMI standard cable (1 for the input and 2 for the output). It works both ways.
Q: Will this work for two TV?
Yes, but only one TV at a time. Connects two HDMI sources to one HDMI display or connects one HDMI source to toggle between two displays. If you want both TVs to display the same picture at the same time, you need a splitter, not a switch.
Q: If I connect a PlayStation 4 Pro to a 4K monitor and a 1080p capture card, will it switch between resolutions when I switch between outputs?
Yes, the HDMI switch will switch between resolutions when you switch between outputs.
Q: Are the ports on this device Full HDMI, Mini HDMI or Micro HDMI?
