Iogear on Monday introduced a new
four-port automatic HDMI switch, for consumers with more than one High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI)-equipped peripheral but only one input in their home entertainment system. It costs $189.95.
HDMI is used on the Apple TV and is increasing popular as a way to connect devices capable of displaying HDTV signals. However, the rapid proliferation of HDMI-equipped devices is outpacing the availability of reasonably priced HDMI-equipped receivers.
The Iogear switch lets you select up to four different HDMI sources using a wireless universal remote. It’s High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP)-compliant and supports 1080p resolution. LEDs on the front of the display show you which HDMI device is being used.
