For anyone who has multiple (3D or not) HD devices or is likely to buy HD equipment in the coming ten years, Marmitek is today introducing the first Full HD Switcher with 3D support.
When can you watch 3D?
• the content (e.g. Blu -ray disk, TV transmitter),
• the A/V equipment (e.g. Blu -ray Player, decoder),
• the TV (or projector).
If you would like to connect multiple A/V devices to 1 HDMI port on your TV, you can use an HDMI Switcher.
This must also support 3D if you would like to see a 3D image on your TV.
3D HDMI Switcher
The Marmitek Connect420 allows you to connect up to 5 HDMI devices to your TV with just 1 cable. This prevents a mess of cables under your TV and provides a solution if your TV does not have sufficient HDMI ports.
The Connect420, of course, also supports other standards such as DVI, HDCP, CEC, Lipsync, EDID standards, Deep Color (36bit), x.v. Color and Dolby True HD & DTS HD in addition to 3D. The active switcher is also interruption -free as a result of solid metal, interference -free, top quality housing.
Whether we are talking TV channels, games, YouTube™ videos, Blu -ray disks or on -demand films, it is clear to see that 3D content is emerging as a significant force. And this does not just mean 2D optimized, but full 3D too.
• With Sony's PS3 -firmware -update 3.5 last fall, 38 million A/V devices became 3D suitable in one fell swoop.
• Blu -ray players are increasingly fitted with a network connection, allowing you to easily obtain 3D online content.
• HD decoders now often provide the option of watching 3D films on demand.
Plenty of manufacturers offer 3D TVs, fitted with powerful software that can process double images.
Why watch 3D?
3D creates a cinema experience at home when watching a film; it ensures a more intense experience when gaming and really makes you feel as if you are sitting in the stadium during a sporting competition. Watching TV becomes a genuine experience.
If you wish to continue to enjoy these 3D options, now or in the future, be prepared for these developments and buy a 3D Switcher for future -proof aesthetics in your living room.
