Our take on the WyreStorm SW-0402-MV-HDMI by Crutchfield's Kramer Crane
Enjoy endless display combinations
WyreStorm's SW-0402-MV-HDMI matrix switcher and multi-view scaler lets you watch a variety of sources on a single display at the same time. Say you have a big TV or projector screen in your basement, and you want to keep up with multiple live football games. You can display one, two, three, or even four games in a variety of sizes and screen positions at the same time.
Flexible selection and control
This matrix has four banks of inputs, each offering HDMI, component video with stereo audio, and VGA with stereo minijack connectivity. Two mirrored HDMI outputs let you send signals to your main display, as well as to an optional WyreStorm HDMI-over-Ethernet extender for transmission over long distances.
Flexible configuration and control options come courtesy of front-panel buttons, a web-based user interface, RS-232, or the included handheld remote control.
