If I am using a converter box for long runs, to go to HDSDI out or say an Ethernet conversion, would this switcher still recognize and perform well with the signal?
Asked by: Riley C.
I have had great experience with using the VSM-4x4HFS with extenders. But, where would you plan to have the switcher in the signal chain? I'm trying to imagine the switcher being at the END of a long run, where this would be a concern as the times I've used it, the switcher has been near the source, and the long runs come after the switch. In my setup, I used a few of the Atlona AT-HD4-SI40SR HDMI extender and have them running AFTER the switcher. They have an adjustable output power so you can eliminate artifacting over long runs, as well as EDID management (the ability to learn the EDID of the display equipment and replay it at the other end of the signal chain) Here's a link to the ones I purchased:
