Combine DVI/Component video conversion with HDMI® switching into one convenient device!
This converter/switch allows up to three different video inputs: one Component Video (YPbPr), one DVI, and one HDMI®. You can select which of the three video inputs is sent to the HDMI® output using the Switch on the front of the unit or the included remote control. The Component and DVI inputs will be converted to HDMI® before being sent to the HDMI® output.
The converter/switch also switches and converts audio along with the video, with three different audio inputs allowed: HDMI®, analog stereo, and Optical Digital (Toslink). The HDMI® audio is tied to the HDMI® video input, so whenever you select the HDMI® video you will also get the HDMI® audio.
However, the other two audio inputs can be used with either of the non-HDMI® video inputs. If you have the DVI or Component video input selected, the switch will automatically use whichever non-HDMI® audio input is active (so only one of the two devices should be on at a time).
In addition to sending the audio output on the HDMI® channel, the converter also sends it simultaneously to an Optical Digital (Toslink) output, so you can send the audio to both your AV receiver over Toslink and your TV over the HDMI® cable.
The converter/switch is HDCP compatible and supports video resolutions up to 1080p, as well as high resolution audio, such as DTS-HD Master Audio™, and Dolby TrueHD™. A proprietary Advanced Color Engine in the converter unit enhances the quality of the converted video with brilliant and fresh color, intensified contrast and details, vivid skin tones, sharp edges, and accurate and independent color control.
