A video splitter simultaneously displays the same image across series of monitors or LCDs. The image is sent from a single source, like a computer or camera, and distributed to the different monitors. The monitors may be LCD, digital or even high-definition displays.
Have you ever wanted to monitor the activity in an area, but see it in a number of different locations? Quite often this is a requirement for managing a hotel parking area or a warehouse area where there is an opportunity for vandalism or theft. This is an ideal scenario for using a video splitter. KVMSwitchTech's Video Splitter amplifies the video signal sending it to multiple displays without degrading the images. It's as if the monitors were directly connected to the same source. For that reason, you'll sometimes hear a video splitter referred to as a video distribution amplifier

Benefits of using a Video Splitter
Video splitters are the ideal solution for monitoring or transmitting images across multiple monitors from a single source. Common applications are for training, digital signage, simulation, remote monitoring and high-definition broadcasts.
In fact, you can even cascade multiple splitter units to display the same image across hundreds of monitors. How cool is that!? This is a great solution for a training complex where the instructor needs to be able to display the master screen show to a room full of students while they look on their own monitors.
The obvious benefit of using video splitters is that you can accommodate the need to monitor a space from several different offices or even different buildings.
What to Look For When Purchasing a Video splitter
There are a few considerations to nail down before purchasing a Splitter
• The VGA splitter allows you to display the same image from a single source to multiple VGA monitors. You need to determine if the monitor or display is VGA or digital. A digital monitor requires a digital splitter. If you want to achieve the same results using an HDMI display, then you need an HDMI splitter.
• If you need to connect more than sixteen monitors to a single source, then you should look into using a Video Distribution Amplifier unit that supports cascading feature. If they do, you can connect them together to display the same image on up to 256 monitors.
• Always review your support options. Look for a merchant offering support to a real human being and not just an online guide. Some configurations may be more complicated and you need to discuss the situation with a technical professional before spending money on the wrong solution. That just leads to delays and frustration.
