Accell Welcomes the UltraAV 4 -2 HDMI Switch to their Ever -Expanding Family

Accell brings enhanced versatility to home theatres by allowing two displays to simultaneously access up to four HDMI devices

Fremont, Calif., Dec. 11, 2007 - Accell, a leader of enhanced connectivity, today announced the release of the UltraAV 4 -2 HDMI Switch. Equipped with four HDMI inputs and two HDMI outputs, this latest offering from Accell allows for easy switching of multiple HDMI sources and can play content on two high definition displays simultaneously. Priced at just $199 MSRP, the UltraAV 4 -2 offers Accell's premium technology at a price point similar to entry -level consumer switches.


The UltraAV 4 -2 is designed to bring enhanced versatility and control to the home theater system. The switch can route high definition video and audio signals from any four sources, including HD -DVD players and HD satellite systems, and mirror the high definition content, without degradation, to two displays at the same time. For added ease of use, the UltraAV 4 -2 HDMI Switch features smart auto -switching technology that automatically detects the active video source and switches to it.

"While 4 -1 HDMI switches have saturated the market, the UltraAV 4 -2 fulfills a unique market need and brings enhanced versatility and control to the home theater system," said Tenny Sin, Accell's Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Accell is rapidly expanding our line of audio/visual distribution products and the new UltraAV 4 -2 reflects our mission to offer consumers innovative solutions at attractive price points."

Accell's UltraAV 4 -2 HDMI Switch supports HD audio and video transmission up to 1080p and is HDCP -compatible. A built -in signal repeater extends cable run length up to 82' (25m). The switch also includes a convenient Infrared Extender, typically an optional add -on with other switches, that enables the remote control to interact with the switch even without line -of -sight.
