Connect Any HDMI Device To A Network

The Global Caché Global Connect GC3 with HDMI Switch will allow your home electronic devices that connect through HDMI (such as TVs or gaming consoles) to communicate with each other over a network. The HDMI switch module allows for network-controlled switching between 3 different sources at resolutions up to UHD 4K at 60Hz via HDMI cables. This module provides 3 in 1 out HDMI switching functions and allows for switching to any one of the 3 HDMI inputs as well as turning off transmission completely from the HDMI switch. The switch can also detect whether the connected HDMI devices are powered on, off, or are in standby mode. It connects to the Internet via Ethernet and includes a 3 Slot, 4.5-inch freestanding chassis.
