    The feature list is impressive but very misleading. May I ask how many of these presets and layouts are actually possible when incorporating a source resolution at or below 1080? Seemless switch between all sources? No way vga
    Joel R on Feb 26, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Joel,

    Thank you for reaching out to us, you can set up to 8 layout presets with varying input resolutions. Input resolution is not a factor as long as it's 480p or better, the limitation is that output resolution needs to be 1080p or better for the multiview features, when output is 720p or lower, the unit will only function as a scaler and seamless switcher. The seamless switcher incorporates the same technology currently in our other seamless switching devices.
    I see the layout at the bottom of this item screen, however, I would like a simple 2 input layout. One left and one right. Is this switch capable of this?

    Does this send the Output over the HDMI output and Displayport output simultaneously or do you have to choose one or the other?

    does this have the ability to do native screen size full screen from any format. control .?
    A shopper on Dec 26, 2017
    When using one of the quad view layouts with Blackbird 4K Multiview Video Processor, how do you select which audio feed you're listening to or how do you cycle through audio feeds? Also, with one large and three smaller window layouts, is it possible to cycle through available inputs in the large window without changing the layout?
