What is a Switch?
A switch allows you to connect 2 video sources to 1 display. Your video sources may be something like a DVD player, PS3, XBOX 360, Satellite Receiver and/or a Cable box etc. Your display is normally going to be a TV set but at times may be a Projector. View a great example of an HDMI Switch.
What is a Splitter?
A splitter allows you to take the video from one source and then display it on multiple displays depending on how many outputs the splitter has. Again, your video source will normally be; a DVD player, PS3, XBOX 360, Satellite Receiver and/or a Cable box etc. Your displays can be a combination of TVs or Projectors as long as they all have the same interfaces as your splitter. See our HDMI Splitter.
