The TV is no longer just a TV, it is an entertainment hub that we can connect a myriad of devices to. However, a TV can only offer a set number of HDMI input ports. But if you wish to connect more devices than your TV can handle, you should get yourself an HDMI switcher. These handy little gadgets let you combine multiple HDMI input ports, into a single output port, letting you plug in multiple devices simultaneously. Here’s a look at some 4K HDMI splitters that are available on Amazon. Do note that these devices were selected based on the features that they have to offer.
Unlike most other HDMI switchers in the market, this device from Techole is a bi-directional switcher. This means that not only will you be able to have one output source for two input devices, but you can also have two output sources from one input device. For example, this will allow you to connect a game console to one end, and have the output on two different displays. You will be able to switch between the two modes at the press of a button.
The Kinivo 550BN is a high-speed HDMI Switch that’s ideal for your gaming needs or home theatre setup. It allows switching up to five HDMI inputs into one output, reducing any sort of wires cluttering near your device. If there are multiple active inputs, then you can select the input either using the IR remote or the select button on the switch, allowing you to choose between options so that it doesn’t constrict your experience. It supports 4K 60Hz / 4K 30Hz, 3D, and is even HDCP compliant, delivering an output display with good resolution. The setup also offers Deep colour up to 36-bit, automatic switching and manual switching via IR remote control and is claimed to offer vibrant, natural and true-to-life colours.
The Orei HDS-104 is a distribution amplifier powered splitter that will take the HDMI signal up to 4K-30Hz and duplicate the signal for up to four HDMI displays simultaneously, delivering lossless image or audio transmission via the HDMI cable. This way, using the splitter will only enhance your experience and keep your wire stash organised like no other. This product is compact, durable, and easy to set up and operate. It can be set-up almost anywhere, including trade shows, conference rooms, lecture halls, bedrooms, living rooms, backyards, etc. This splitter duplicates the source to the four output displays. However, it can’t be used to extend a desktop for a PC or a laptop.
The OREI 1x2 HDMI Splitter can split one HDMI input signal into two HDMI output signals that are identical to the input signal simultaneously, which means you can view your content on two output devices at the same time without any loss in data or its quality. This splitter supports most of the home theatre variants such as HDTV, Blu-ray, DVD, Xbox, PS3/4, Fire TV stick, Fire TV, projector, Roku, Apple TV etc., allowing you to connect through any device. The splitter comes with a heavy-duty cool metal enclosure that protects its insides and keeps the unit cool by aiding in quick heat absorption and dissipation during its operation. It also supports all Audio inputs, including LPCM 7.1CH, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio Power Adapter.

It can be used for hours without overheating due to the presence of a heavy-duty cool metal enclosure which protects the insides and keeps the unit cool by aiding in quick heat absorption and dissipation.
