HDMI 1080p / 3D Splitting. Two screens from one source - all powered by USB!
The latest in Avencore's growing range of HDMI products sees the ultimate implementation of the classic Powered 2-Way HDMI Splitter.
This neat and ultra compact HDMI splitter is powered by USB for flexibility of installation, and duplicates a single HDMI input source, mirrored to two output displays. Full HD 1080p @ 60Hz is supported, including 3D content, as well as Dolby uncompressed digital audio. If using with Foxtel, Apple TV and similar devices, see the compatibility note below.
Minimalism is awesome these days. What with mobile phones and netbooks and printers and other gadgets all getting smaller and smaller, it’s great to see products like this 2-Way HDMI Splitter being shrunk down so they can be hidden away easily.
This sexy, ultra-compact unit from Avencore is fully powered, and can boost your HDMI cable range while retaining crisp v1.3b HDMI standards and HDCP 1.2 compatibility. If you need to split one source out to two televisions either in your home or at your place of business, then this will get the job done with ease.
Part of the ever-growing Spectre range of AV splitters and switchers from Avencore, this device is covered by a 12-month replacement warranty and offers simple, robust HDMI splitting for most common home theatre sources, for use with TVs, projectors and/or computer monitors.

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.

Product Review by David,
I recently had the good fortune of finding and then dealing with Cable Chick. After reviewing a HDMI Splitter on their website, I placed my order online.
I was impressed when the unit arrived the very next day. The unit was well packaged and was easy to install. I have now included the Cable Chick site in my favourites and will be doing business again soon. Having worked in sales for many years it is great to see a company embracing those 'old fashioned' values around service.

Product Review by Gordon,
Thank you for promptly delivering the Quality Powered 4-Way HDMI Splitter within two days of ordering. The splitter was easy to set up and works exceptionally well. It sends brilliant genuine HD video signals to 1080p LCD TVs. The sound is true with no distortion.
I commend the attention to detail in the design of the splitter its compactness and the valuable LED displays for external power, input and outputs. Even the packaging matched the high quality of the metal-cased splitter unit. A great product.
