This model is designed to be mounted on any 2x3, 2x4 stud on a back wall. Its small size and secure power allows customers to create clean installs without spending a lot of money."

The Mini 1:8 Splitter for HDMI v1.3 delivers high definition video and multichannel audio from one Blu-ray player, set-top box, PS3 or XBox game console or any device using HDMI connectivity to eight displays and/or projectors at the same time.

Support for HDMI v1.3 features include lip sync, deep colour, Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio, make it ideal for many applications including digital signage and rental and staging, or any audio/video system using HDMI v1.3 with 1080p full HD resolution.

The Mini 1:8 Splitter for HDMI v1.3 allows users to select either two-channel or multi-channel 7.1 audio. A switch for internal or external EDID ensures any selectable signal transmission to all eight displays at all times.

The GefenTV 1:8 Mini Splitter for HDMI v1.3 comes with a locking power supply and one HDMI locking cable. The locking possibility for HDMI cables adds robustness to the installation.
