HDMI distributors are in great demand, especially for digital signage applications. Since digital signal paths are less susceptible than analog solutions they are preferred for this and HDMI connections are standard on most devices today. High-quality HDMI distributors are now able to process 4K signals, which is particularly important for 4K displays and 4K projectors. An HDMI distributor may also be an HDMI splitter. The signal is output in parallel and not switched over.
