4K HDMI splitter

Recommended Posts

you eventually will. but the majority of them have their own power supply to boost it back up. Everything that I have come across has been at most 60 fps although I'm sure something is on its way

Those are great if you're not using it for 4k resolution. 

 

When on 4k it only refresh at 30 instead of 60 or 120hz depending upon your tv.

I know when we did Zibanejad's house he had all 4k tv's but nothing was displaying as 4k only because the splitters couldn't handle it. But he was in his house for 10 days before getting traded

All the switches on the market to my knowledge are only 60hz. Finding a true 120hz TV is a rarity since most just utilize 60hz and internally double the frames in the display itself. For those panels that do actually display and accept a true 120hz signal, they normally only accept such a signal from a PC as home theater equipment are normally restricted to between 24-60p depending on the way your media is encoded. With the recent launch and announcement of Nvidia Gsync televisions, I hope to see more equipment outputing and adapting to high refresh rates.

It's less of a scam and more just use of choice wording. As an example, LG calls their fake 120hz "True Motion", which is an internally doubled 60hz signal emulating 120hz for smoother motion. This is why you tend to see light artifacting on these style displays as every second frame is simply the panel guessing what it thinks should be between the natural frames in order to smooth out its motion during fast scenes. Manufactures focus less on higher Hz ratings on televisions as home theatre equipment tends not to surpass 24p/60p for their broadcasting output as this is the rate in which tv and films are captured in. You will surely pay a premium for a display with natural 120hz internal processing, atleast until it becomes more of a standard thanks to higher end graphics cards and hopefully higher refresh rates on future gaming consoles.
