Overview

The VS221VGA2HD HDMI & VGA Auto Switch lets you connect an HDMI and a VGA audio/video source to the same HDMI display or projector, and automatically or manually switch between which video source is displayed. The multi-input A/V switch supports video resolution up to 1920x1200 (1080p) and includes mounting hardware for a tidy professional installation.

One Switch for VGA and HDMI

The A/V switch features built-in VGA conversion, enabling you to connect an HDMI and a VGA video source to the same HDMI display without the use of additional adapters or scalers.

Effortless Control

The VS221VGA2HD ensures hassle-free operation with two different auto switching modes: automatic switching that detects and selects a newly connected device, as well as priority selection which lets you choose which port should be activated by default for automatic switching.

Focus on the Presentation, Not Boardroom Connections

This A/V switch has been designed with the boardroom and classroom in mind: the VS221VGA2HD features VGA and HDMI inputs to support a wide range of devices, and the built-in converter makes it easy to connect to the room’s display without the use of additional adapters. Plus, automatic switching encourages on-the-fly collaboration among students or co-workers, by making it easy to share your projector between multiple source devices.

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.
