What is the difference between an HDMI matrix switcher and an HDMI switcher?
Before answering this question, let's first understand what an HDMI switcher and an HDMI matrix switcher are, and what are the main application scenarios, so that we can distinguish them better.
HDMI switch is a device that supports multiple HDMI signal input, and then only outputs 1 HDMI signal. , 8 in 1 out, 16 in 1 out, 24 in 1 out, 32 in 1 out, also known as 2-way, 3-way, 4-way, 5-way, 8-way, 16-way, 24-way, 32-way HDMI switch HDMI switchers, generally used in ordinary homes and small and medium-sized offices are 2 in 1 out, 3 in 1 out, 4 in 1 out, 5 in and 1 out HDMI switcher; in some large data centers, monitoring rooms, Multimedia centers, etc. will use HDMI switchers with more than 8 ports. Now we will show you the interface description and connection effect of HDMI switcher with 3-in, 1-out HDMI switcher 31HN.

HDMI matrix switcher is a device that supports multi-channel HDMI signal input and can customize 1-channel and multi-channel output modes. Compared with ordinary HDMI switchers, HDMI matrix switchers have more flexible control. The HDMI signal is distributed into multiple HDMI signal outputs, and all 1-to-1 outputs can also be realized. The following will take the 4-input and 4-output HDMI matrix switcher 414HN as an example to show you the interface description and connection effect of the 4-input and 4-output HDMI matrix switcher.

The difference between HDMI matrix switcher and HDMI switcher
Through the above information, we can easily know that the difference between HDMI matrix switcher and HDMI switcher is mainly in the support of the output mode. The HDMI switcher only supports 1 HDMI signal output, and only supports the output of 1 host. HDMI signal; HDMI matrix switcher has as many HDMI inputs as there are multiple HDMI outputs, supports the simultaneous output of HDMI signals of all hosts, and also supports the distribution of one HDMI signal into multiple HDMI signal outputs. Overall, HDMI matrix switchers are more powerful than single-output HDMI switchers. I hope my analysis can help you choose a switcher that meets your exact needs.
