In recent years, with the development of high-definition technology, HDMI is gradually known and favored by people. Many electronic products use HDMI interface. For the update of HDMI version, many people have such questions as whether the version of HDMI switcher can communicate with each other. Next, let’s follow the Xiaobian of Feichang technology to learn more about it!
HDMI switcher is a high-performance broadband intelligent matrix switching device specially designed for the transmission and switching of high-resolution HDMI digital image and audio signal of computer. It can output one or more input signals to one or more display devices.
But with the development of HDMI technology, the interface version of HDMI has been changing. From hdmi1.2 to hdmi2.0, after several generations of evolution, HDMI has become more and more perfect. However, many electronic products are still in version 1.2 or 1.3, so many users will worry about whether the version of DMI switcher can communicate with each other.
Can the versions of HDMI switch communicate with each other? For example, with a version 1.2 and a version 1.3b HDMI cable, the signal source, imaging equipment and amplifier are all version 1.3. What kind of signal will be transmitted in this way?
Regardless of the built-in HDMI switch interface version of the equipment, if two HDMI cables are used simultaneously in the system, one is used from the source equipment to the multi-channel surround amplifier, and the other is used from the multi-channel surround amplifier to the imaging equipment.
The two wires are version 1.2 and version 1.3. In this way, the signal transmission will be reduced to the format of version 1.2 for output. The problem is that the bandwidth specifications of version 1.2 and version 1.3 are different. As long as the signal cannot pass normally, the equipment will reduce the file to allow the signal to be transmitted normally.
Therefore, if the system equipment is version 1.2 or above, or all of them are version 1.3 interfaces, we should pay special attention to the HDMI cable version used. If the former uses version 1.2 or above, and if the latter uses version 1.3 or above, the signals can be processed according to the specification of version 1.3.
Now most of the electronic products on the market are 1.3 or 1.4, so whether the 1.4 version of HDMI switcher can be interoperable or not, the answer is the same. Hdmi1.4 can accommodate hdmi1.2 or 1.3, but conversely, it does not work. The interface of hdmi1.4 can only be compatible with products above hdmi1.4.
Conclusion: whether the versions of HDMI switcher can communicate with each other or not, we should have some understanding through the above description, so when purchasing HDMI cable, we should go and install the version of HDMI switcher, so as to better reflect the value of matrix switcher.
Well, the above content is about whether various versions of HDMI switcher of Feichang technology can communicate with each other? This issue related to a detailed introduction, I hope to help you!
