Kramer has announced the VS-211HA, a two-input HDMI auto switcher that can be set to select between autoswitching (last-connected or priority) and manual switching modes (manual and manual override). VS-211HA detects actual HDMI signals (instead of just 5V presence) allowing auto switching only to sources actually in use. HDMI 5V output turns off when no inputs are connected to enable cascaded setups and to let displays go into sleep mode.
The Kramer VS-211HA offers full signal re-clocking and parallel analog audio and HDMI switching. VS-211HA also features HEC, ARC and 3D pass-through and supports full HD video up to 6.75Gbps (2.25Gbps per graphic channel). In addition, it has PC audio ports for separate switching of 3.5-millimeter audio.
