4-in/4-out HDMI matrix switcher with 4K and HDCP 2.2 support
Our take on the WyreStorm MX-0404-H2 by Crutchfield's Kramer Crane
Mix and match four HDMI sources with four displays
WyreStorm's MX-0404-H2 matrix switcher lets you send content from four HDMI sources — like cable boxes, Blu-ray players, or streaming devices — to four TVs, projectors, or monitors. Show a single source on all four displays, or show a different source on each one. Instant, seamless source switching lets you easily change up what ballgame, camera feed, or movie you want to display.
This matrix supports 1080p video transmission up to 15 meters (49 feet) and 4K video transmission up to 7 meters (23 feet). Flexible control options come courtesy of a web-based user interface, IR (infrared extender included), RS-232, or the included handheld remote control.
