HTR Reviews Atlona AT-UHD-H2H-44M 4×4 UHD HDMI Matrix Switcher
Most AV enthusiasts can rely on their AVR to handle HDMI switching duties, but when you step up to a more complex install running multiple displays, inputs, and outputs only a matrix will do. Now these are never cheap, but it is important to strike the right balance between value, supportability, and capability.
Slowly but surely, the number of 4K source devices is growing. As I type this, I’ve got two in my test system (the Sony FMP-X10 and the Nvidia Shield), one that just arrived on my doorstep (the Roku 4), and one en route (the second-gen Amazon Fire TV). And of course, Ultra HD Blu-ray players are just around the corner.
Switching through those sources to view on one or two display devices is easy enough, given the plethora of new 4K-capable AV receivers and preamps. If, on the other hand, you’re looking for a way to send multiple 4K/60, HDCP 2.2-protected sources to multiple displays around your home, office, or commercial space, the options are more limited…but growing.
