This HDMI Scaler Repeater has one HDMI input and one HDMI output. It can be used as a scaler to convert 1080p up to 4k or to convert 4k down to 1080p. This is especially useful when a 4k source such as Sky Q is connected to a splitter for distribution throughout the house. If any single TV in the system is capable of only 1080p but all others are capable of 4k, the entire system will display resolutions limited to 1080p only. Using this device between the splitter and any 1080p TV will enable all 4k-capable TVs to display images of up to 4k resolution.
This is because most splitters and matrices pick up the resolution of the least capable TV in a network and set the resolution of all outputs to match that TV. Otherwise, a 4k image would be distributed throughout the house and any TV not capable of 4k resolution would show no picture at all. Use this device to solve that problem.
Important Note: This device is transparent to a splitter - the splitter 'sees' the device connected at the output of the scaler. If that is a 1080p TV, the splitter will see a 1080p device on that port regardless of whether the scaler is installed or not. So it is important to use a splitter that ignores the feedback from the port to which the 1080p TV is connected and consequently puts out 4k to both ports. Our 2-way splitter (product code 412009) works in this way, which is why we bundle the two together as we know this combination works.
The device can also be set to convert 1080p up to 4k or to act as a repeater when set to pass-through mode. This enables HDMI cables of 20m in length (2 x 10m) to be used at 4k2k@60Hz or up to 40m (1 x 25m plus 1 x 15m) when used at 1080p.
All HD digital audio modes are supported and the device is compliant with HDCP2.2, HDMI2.0b, HDR and HDR10 (but not Dolby Vision).
