Customer Q&A

1 question already asked

Will this work backwards? Or in otherwords Is this bi directional?
[ Trevor  Apr 09, 2020 ]

My understanding from doing a little research (I'm not a scientist or electrical engineer) is that switches are only one way. To send one signal to multiple monitors is a different device. Again, from what I've read online...not because I'm an expert. It does work great as a switch, though. Was worried about it not working with some sources, but so far it's been great.
