Vanco 280708 1x8 HDMI Splitter with IR Control
You work hard to keep the world safe from the constant threat of zombies, mad science, and masked vigilantes. Some may call it a game, but you call it… a duty. Your valiant efforts and sterling bravery deserve the attention of those around you, but that doesn’t mean your friends and family should crowd your smiting space. Give them their own separate screens with Vanco’s 1x8 Splitter with IR Control.
This splitter is designed to take a signal from a single source like a Blu-ray player, computer, or game console and split it out to eight televisions or monitors. It comes with a built-in equalizer to help your signal run longer distances and is rated for cables up to 66 feet after the split. The 280708 1x8 splitter comes with the most up-to-date HDMI specifications including 3D, 4K resolutions, and even 7.1 Dolby surround sound. It is also fully HDCP compliant so you can avoid many of those tiresome handshake issues.
The set-up is simple. In addition to the 280708 HDMI splitter, you need HDMI cables and an available outlet. This box must be plugged in to work, but it comes with a 5v power supply. This splitter is also compatible with Vanco’s Super IR system for running IR over HDMI. Additional adapters are required for use of the Super IR feature.
Shake it Up
With great digital power comes great digital responsibility. Many new HDMI devices have to adhere to the most recent wave of copy protection called High-bandwidth Digital Copy Protection, or HDCP. New devices are issued codes, and they are programmed to have to check them against a large database of approved codes for your electronics to send and receive signals. HDCP acts like a bouncer, checking the IDs of every device at the door to ensure no authorized entries are made.
This process, known as the HDMI handshake, isn’t flawless and errs on the side of caution every time. If you’re having trouble with the transmission of audio, video, or both, there are a couple of common, easy fixes. Just like in every other type of technology, the first thing to try is a reboot. Turn your equipment off for a few minutes and then switch it back on. The next step, if a reboot proves unsuccessful, is to unplug your devices and connect them again in a different order. It usually works best to start with the device that supports the lowest resolution. For example, if one of your screens is 1080p and the other is 720p, connect to the 720p first. Still having issues? No problem! Contact us and we can walk you through more advanced troubleshooting options.

Vanco Plenum HDMI Cable - High Speed with Ethernet 24AWG 3D Ready
The Line of Fire
Plenum cables are most commonly required to meet building codes in office buildings and, occasionally, homes. The word “plenum” describes an area where air circulates like above a drop ceiling. These areas are held to stiffer fire safety standards and they necessitate the use of specially rated cables. In the event of a fire, the unique environment in plenum spaces lends itself to a rapid spread of flames and noxious smoke. To meet plenum specifications, cables must be covered in a fire-retardant jacket and, often, are made of low-smoke materials. The Vanco 277125 24AWG High-Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet is UL plenum rated.
The Gold Standard
The Vanco 277125 plays by the strictest rules while also offering all the bells and whistles of our regular high-quality HDMI cables at a convenient 25’ length. Boasting the most recent HDMI capabilities, this cable comes ready to tackle 3D, Audio Return Channels, and the legendary new 4k resolutions. The built-in Ethernet channel also allows you to share an internet connection between compatible devices so connecting your equipment couldn’t be easier.
With a refresh rate handling up to 340Hz and a 10.2Gbps transfer rate, Vanco’s 277125 25’ Plenum HDMI cable can stand up to the demands of any home or office media system. These cables can be substituted for standard HDMI in any application. They can even be seamlessly integrated with receivers, splitters, and switches to create a system tailored to your needs. Sturdy, 24k gold plated contacts and copper conductors resist corrosion and damage to ensure each cable you get performs flawlessly. Vanco also provides a one-year limited warranty for their plenum HDMI cables against any manufacturer defects.
