HDANYWHERE HDMI SIGNAL MANAGER

A Swiss Army knife for the installer of HDMI devices. A HDMI audio de-embedder, down-mixer, video scaler and EDID fixer.

Designed for when a single HDMI source signal is being shared to multiple HDMI sink devices (HDTV displays, monitors, AVRs or projectors), the HDMI Signal Manager ensures that each sink gets the type of HDMI signal thats best suited to its capabilities, by either up or downscaling video & audio to match.

Downscale from 1080p

Downscale the video input to match that required on the HDMI display connected to the output, integrating non-1080p displays into matrix systems without causing resolution drop elsewhere.

Audio Downmix / De-embed

The HDMI Signal Manager can de-embed (extract) the audio from the HDMI datastream and output it as 5.1 via the optical port or down-mix it to 2.0ch stereo via a 3.5mm headphone jack port.

Upscale to 1080p

The Signal Manager can take a 720p/1080i (or lower) resolution and upscale it to Full HD 1080p lines. Great for improving the picture quality from set-top-boxes for example.

HDMI Swiss Army Knife

Where other brands produce endless widgets, we have produced one. The HDMI Signal Manager does everything you need to make HDMI behave how you want it to. Its a fixer device, a resolver of HDMI issues when it comes to video and audio, resolution or format.

For AVR & non-AVR zones

Use the Signal Manager at all non-AVR zones to maintain the best possible HDMI multichannel audio format at all AVR zones elsewhere. It will accept a multichannel audio signal on the HDMI input side and internally downmix the audio signal to HDMI w/2ch audio before output.

EDID Troubleshooting

HDTVs use EDID data to tell connected HDMI sources what compatible signal format to send. In certain situations this data can be lost resulting in an incorrect signal, or no video at all. The Signal Manager ensures that the HDMI source receives a correct EDID at all times.

Make HDMI play nice with the Sonos Playbar

Optical is only connection option available on the Sonos Playbar. By using the HDMI Signal Manager you can easily use the Playbar with any HDMI source device, matrix or HDanywhere multiroom system.
