Incredible 8-screen HDMI splitter - tried and tested throughout commercial showrooms around Australia!
Duplicates HDMI video and audio from a single source device and delivers it simultaneously to 8 connected displays. Support for HDMI v1.3b signals means resolutions up to 1080p/60Hz in 3D are covered, perfect for installation in the media room, the office, and commercial shop displays.
You'll find this amazing HDMI splitter already deployed across hundreds of retail showrooms, displaying Full HD content to multiple displays day after day.
Avencore's impressive HDMI v1.3b 1x8 Splitter specialises in taking one HDMI source, and cloning it to show on up to EIGHT different HDMI-compatible displays (including TVs, Monitors and Projectors) at once. The splitter does the work of negotiating the best common resolution between all displays and all eight ports remain active at all times for clear simultaneous video and audio distribution.
Of course, being powered, this splitter also helps you extend your cable runs by equalising your signals and reclocking them before passing them on. You can even daisy-chain multiple splitters for even bigger video networks!
HDMI up to 1080p @ 60Hz is supported, as well as Blu-ray 3D (assuming all displays are also 3D-ready) and many other HDMI v1.3b features such as Dolby AC3, DTS 7.1 & DSD, deep colour and more.

Product Review by Ken,
How do you connect an xbox 360 slim with HDMI out to a video projector at the same time a flat screen TV in one room and another in the kitchen for monitoring what the kids are up too? This little device is the answer. I am very impressed on the ease of set-up and use, and as it is a VDA (Video Distribution Amplifier in old school terms) means no signal degradation, even over longer cable runs.
The HDCP pass through works flawlessly too on all devices, even if a device is turned off/disconnected/reconnected, the others still are seen by the HDCP system, so no interruption to your viewing pleasure. A truly flexible solution.
The sleek design is at home with any AV installation. Literally this little unit set and forget.
I have built my own multimedia room and is my pride and joy. This is why I use Cable Chick exclusively because they have everything I need, from wall plates, cables to high end devices (sometimes exclusively available to Cable Chick), all very high quality, great price and supper fast service.
It is a welcomed relief when doing a building project that you know that what ever you need, you will have it the next business day, so you can progress the project to completion.
Also, because of their great and varied range, this helps in the design process. Often you may say "If only I have a..." and often enough, you will find what you need at Cable Chick. They have my business.

Can this unit be used to output to two sources, one of which is 3D and the other non-3D, and still pass the 3D to the supported screen? Other splitters I'm researched defer back to the lowest supported format, i.e. both are displayed in 2D. I'd like to be able to pass the 3D signal to the 3D screen and have the 2nd signal go to a 2D screen?
"Unfortunately these splitter can only accept a single input device, and Blu-ray content comes either as a 3D disc or a 2D disc, with the display device determining if playback can be supported based on the signal received. Our splitter can't downgrade 3D content to 2D, so it will go for the lowset common/compatible format.
With two source devices, I would recommend you check our our HDMI True Matrix options. With these, you can direct 3D content to 3D displays and 2D content to 2D displays. Eg: http://www.cablechick.com.au/cables/premium-ultra-hd-4k-hdmi-4x2-true-matrix-switch-with-remote.html
Please note that our matrixes top out at 4 outputs, but additional non-matrix splitters can be attached to expand the number of displays - they will be segregated into 2D and 3D groups, however."

What is the best way to connect multiple TV's to this device when the TV's are in different rooms?
"The most reliable solution is a good quality HDMI cable run through the wall. A more compact wired solution is to use HDMI over Cat5 extenders, but this can be expensive. The final option is to go with a wireless solution, but performance can vary with distance and how many walls the signal has to pass through."
