Overview

The VS424HDPIP 4X4 HDMI Matrix Switch with Picture-and-Picture (PAP) gives you the power to seamlessly combine and distribute four HDMI audio/video sources across four different HDMI displays, with the added ability to combine multiple images on the same display.

See the Whole Picture

The split-screen multiplexing switch combines the flexibility of a matrix switch with the scalability of a video wall, giving you the freedom to combine video sources on a single display. You can also distribute different video combinations independently across four individual displays. The switch offers full matrix configuration supporting four different picture-and-picture modes per display: Matrix Mode (1x1) / Dual Mode (2x1) / Quad Mode (4x1) / TV Wall Mode (1x4).

Control Your Output

Fitting your boardroom or digital signage application with a VS424HDPIP dramatically increases your communication possibilities. Not only does the picture-and-picture matrix switch increase your communication by a factor of four per display, but it also enables you to adjust your video sources remotely using RS232 serial, your local TCP/IP network, or the included IR remote control.

Increase the Versatility of Your Displays

The VS424HDPIP is a flexible video switch that can improve any video display application. The picture-and-picture technology enables you to share up to four distinct images on the same screen, reducing required video real estate and saving you from wasting money on additional displays in your digital signage applications. For security monitoring, you can combine four video sources onto a single display to view everything more efficiently and broadcast those feeds to four different displays in different locations -- you can even zoom into to a single feed for a closer look without disrupting the remaining three displays. For versatile installation options, mounting hardware is included ensuring a tidy and professional installation.

The VS424HDPIP is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

The StarTech.com Advantage

  • Control your output and make your digital signage operation easier with remote control operation using RS232 (serial), Telnet (TCIP/IP Network), or IR (remote control)

Frequently Asked Questions

Before You Buy

This device outputs HDMI video signals. If you have a display or video destination that uses another type of video connection, there are ways that you can convert the video signal or connection. These options are outlined below and organized by the target connection.

HDCP

When you consider whether to convert an HDMI video signal to another connection type, it is important to know if the media that is being converted from the HDMI video connection is protected by High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP). If the media is protected by HDCP, you cannot convert to analog video connections because they do not support HDCP. You may experience this issue when you use devices like Blu-ray players, DVD players, and certain gaming consoles.

Troubleshooting

When you troubleshoot issues with a video splitter, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:

  • Video cables

  • Video switch

  • Video source (such as a DVD player or computer)

  • Video destination (such as a monitor or projector)

Note: When you are testing setup components, you should avoid using video adapters. For example, if you are converting a VGA source to HDMI for use with an HDMI switch, you should use an HDMI source when you test the components.

To test your setup components, try the following:

  • Use the cable, video switch, video source, and video destination in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.

  • Use a different cable, video switch, video source, and video destination in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.

When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Test each cable individually.

  • Use short cables when you are testing.

When you test the video source and video destination, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Remove the video switch from your setup and test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together without the video switch.

  • Test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together at the resolution that you want to use.

Note: In order for your setup to work properly, the video source, switch, and destination all need to support the resolution that you are using.

You should not upgrade your device's firmware if you do not have any issues with the functionality of your device. The only time you should consider an upgrade is if you are experiencing a problem with the device, and you have confirmed that the firmware addresses this problem.  You can confirm this is the case by reviewing the documentation included with the firmware or by consulting with our Technical Support team. Incorrectly upgrading firmware can result in diminished performance so it is best to contact StarTech.com if you would like to perform this operation.
