The Quick Adoption of High-Definition Video and the Insufficient Number of HDMI Inputs Make This Switch an Essential Piece of Your Home Entertainment System
With many HD displays and AV receivers featuring just one HDMI input, you have been forced to use only one HDMI device at a time -- until now. Belkin's new PureAV HDMI Interface 3-to-1 Video Switch accommodates all your HD components by allowing you to connect to and switch up to three digital video sources -- such as a cable set-top box, DVD player, or game console -- through the single HDMI port on your TV or receiver.
This Switch easily solves the problem of insufficient HDMI inputs caused by the quick and widespread adoption of HDMI in the marketplace. High-definition components that commonly feature the HDMI connector include TVs, up-converting DVD players, cable/satellite boxes, entertainment computers, the newly released Blu-ray(R) and HD-DVD players, and upcoming game consoles, PlayStation(R) 3 and Xbox(R) 360 (HDMI connection to come). People who own multiple digital-video devices can avoid a bottleneck at the HDTV's single HDMI port with this Switch.
The Switch will ship in North America in July 2006, with launches in Asia, Europe, and Australia to follow. It will also be on display at the Home Entertainment Show 2006 in Los Angeles, June 1-4, in Suite 201.
