Aug. 16, 2021, Aurora, OH: Network Technologies Inc (NTI) today announced the addition of the SPLITMUX® 4K 18Gbps HDMI Quad Screen Splitter/Multiviewer to its popular line of Video Multiviewers. The multiviewer allows video from four different HDMI 2.0 Ultra-HD 4Kx2K 60Hz sources to be simultaneously displayed in real-time on a single monitor.
The SPLITMUX-4K18GB-4 is capable of displaying the video sources in Quad, Picture in Picture (PiP), Full, or Custom mode. In custom display mode, each video source is displayed in its own separate, detached window. The size, position and selection of any or all windows are customizable. In quad screen mode, the screen is split into four fields of equal size, each displaying the entire contents of four different video sources. In full screen mode, one of the four video sources is displayed in full screen size, and can be set to cycle through the four video sources. In PiP mode, the full screen display of one of the four video sources is accompanied by one, two, or three small images (thumbnails also knows as "PiP windows") of the three other video sources on the right hand margin of the screen, allowing simultaneous monitoring.
In any display mode or preset layout, the audio from the connected HDMI sources can be switched independently from the video, as well as multiple audio channels simultaneously active. The unit features fluid, real-time video performance with 60 frames per second in all four quadrants. A customized text label can be added for each video window to provide easy input identification (UMD). Zoom, pan, and crop the image from any source to focus on key areas.
The 4K 18Gbps HDMI Quad Screen Splitter/Multiviewer supports input/output resolutions up to Ultra-HD 4Kx2K (3840x2160 and 4096x2160 @24/30/60Hz YUV 4:4:4) in all display modes. HDMI features supported include: HDMI 2.0; up to 36-bit color for input and 24-bit for output; RGB, YUV 4:4:4, YCbCr 4:4:4, YCbCr 4:2:2; LPCM audio; and bandwidth up to 600 MHz (18 Gbps). It is controlled through Ethernet, RS232 serial port, keyboard commands, on screen display (OSD), front panel buttons, or optional IR remote. The HDMI 2.0 multiviewer is cascadable allowing video from any number of video sources to be displayed on one screen. The units are HDCP 2.2/1.4 compliant, and include a 1RU rackmount kit and cable management shelf.
