Product Research


1X4 HDMI Splitter: Metra's CS-1X4HDMSPL5 HDMI splitter incorporates a single HDMI 2.0 input with four HDMI 2.0 outputs allowing you to share a single standard definition, high definition, or ultra high definition source device (like a Blu-ray player, Game Console or Satellite/Cable receiver) with four displays (such as multiple flat-panel TVs and front projectors).

Built-In Scaling & EDID Management: Thanks to built-in scaling and EDID management, the CS-1X4HDMSPL5 provides the ability to take any standard resolution and downscale it to match each of the connected displays (up to 4), simultaneously. For example, show 4K@60Hz content on a 4K display while also showing the same content scaled down on a 1080p display. Unlike traditional splitters, this built-in scaling allows legacy devices to work with newer higher resolution displays in the system, without automatically defaulting to the lowest resolution. Video quality on newer TVs is no longer sacrificed by having an older model in the mix.

Note: The CS-1X4HDMSPL5 does not upscale video.

HDMI 2.0 (18Gbps): Metra's CS-1X4HDMSPL54 HDMI splitter supports HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2, along with Ultra HD 4K and HDR video. The splitter is capable of receiving and transmitting video bandwidths up to 18Gbps.

  • 4K Resolution: The CS-1X4HDMSPL5 is compatible with ultra-HD video resolutions up to 4k @ 60Hz with support of YCBR 4:4:4 color subsampling. It is also compatible with high definition video up to 1080p @ 60Hz; even 3D video. In addition, it supports 480i standard definition video.
  • HDR Formats: The Metra 1X4 HDMI splitter supports all the major HDR formats - including HDR 10, Dolby Vision, and HLG (Hybrid-Log Gamma).
  • HDCP 2.2 Compliant: HDCP 2.2 is supported by all of the HDMI splitter's inputs & outputs; HDCP is short for "High bandwidth Digital Content Protection" and is used for 4K video copyright protection for compatibility with 4K Blu-ray players and 4K Satellite/Cable providers.

Up to 7.1ch Audio: The Metra CS-1X4HDMSPL5 HDMI splitter supports up to LPCM 7.1ch, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio.

LED Indicators: The Metra 1X5 HDMI splitter features six LEDs to indicate Power, Input, and Output (1-2-3-4) status. These LEDs will illuminate Blue when the device is connected to power, senses an HDMI source input signal, and connected to up to 4 displays.

AC Power Adapter: The included AC power adapter (w/ attached 5' DC cord) plugs into the back of the CX-1X4HDMSPL5 and into an AC power outlet or surge protector (sold separately - see Accessories Tab).

Mounting Options: The CX-1X4HDMSPL5 comes with two brackets and four screws to mount the brackets to the HDMI splitter. The mounting brackets allow you to secure the HDMI splitter to a shelf (mounting screws for shelf not included).
