What types of HDMI splitters are there? 

        According to the number of output ports, HDMI splitters can be divided into the following types:

        01.HDMI one-in two-out splitter: It can distribute one HDMI signal source to two HDMI display devices.

        02.HDMI one-in four-out splitter: it can distribute one HDMI signal source to four HDMI display devices.

        03.HDMI 1-in 8-out splitter: It can distribute 1 HDMI signal source to 8 HDMI display devices.

        04.HDMI 1-in 16-out splitter: It can distribute 1 HDMI signal source to 16 HDMI display devices.

        In addition to the above 1-in 16-out splitter, there are also HDMI splitters with different outputs such as 1-in 24-out, 1-in 32-out, etc. If you need more HDMI output interfaces, you can also find a well-known HDMI splitter manufacturer to customize, or Let HDMI splitter manufacturers provide a reasonable solution.

        02.HDMI splitter that requires external power supply: low power consumption, high stability. Common distributors of this type include eKL-HS104, eKL-HS108, eKL-HS161, etc.

HDMI splitter classification

        According to whether it supports the cascading function, HDMI splitters can also be divided into the following two types:

        01.HDMI splitter that supports cascading function: supports the connection of products of the same model like batteries to expand more HDMI interfaces. Common splitters of this type include eKL-MiniHS102-B, eKL-UH02, eKL-HS104, etc.

        02.Conventional HDMI splitters that do not support the cascading function: can only output the original number of HDMI interfaces, and do not support stacking to expand more HDMI interfaces. Common such dispensers include eKL-HD102, eKL-HD104, eKL-HD108, eKL-miniHS104, etc.

How to choose a suitable HDMI splitter?

        When choosing the right HDMI splitter, there are several factors to consider:

        01.Resolution and refresh rate: such as 1920x1080p 30Hz/60Hz, 4K 30Hz, etc. This is related to the version of HDMI we choose. Generally, it is recommended to choose a version that supports 4K or above, that is, HDMI2.0 or above.

        02.Number of HDMI distribution interfaces: Which devices do you want to output signals to, such as monitors, TVs, projectors, etc., which determines how many HDMI output ports we need.

Generally, HDMI splitters that do not require external power supply are simpler and more convenient, but HDMI splitters that require external power supply are more stable and reliable.

        04.Signal delay and anti-interference ability: For example, whether real-time transmission or long-distance transmission is required. Generally, the smaller the signal delay, the better, and the stronger the anti-interference ability, the better.

        05.Brand and price: For example, whether there is a trusted brand or budget constraints. Generally, the more well-known the brand, the more secure it is, and the higher the price, the more cost-effective it is.
