Some conference rooms are challenging to technical resource teams. Some are quite large and seat hundreds of people. However, presenting a PowerPoint or other presentation from a digital projector connected to a single computer produces less than optimal viewing scenarios. This is when an inexpensive solution such as a DVI splitter comes to the rescue. Perhaps you’ve attended a seminar where you could hear the presenter, but the digital display of the presentation was difficult to view. Your vantage point was too far away from the screen which made it difficult to see what the presenter was describing. However, if the video was projected to two or three screens that were closer to your seat you would have a clearer view.
If this sounds like a situation you face for your next presentation, look into a DVI splitter to solve the problem. Let’s say you want to use a single laptop to display a PowerPoint presentation onto a wall or screen in three or four different locations. To solve this problem you’ll need a DVI splitter that supports 4 or more output connections. These are small units about 3-inches high, a couple of inches deep and around 18-inches wide. DVI splitters are small devices that solve a big problem by getting video signals transmitted out to multiple monitors or projectors from a single computer source. The DVI splitters come in 2, 4, 8, or even 16-port configurations.
When DVI splitters support multiple computer sources, they are referred to as a DVI matrix switch.
The DVI splitter works with digital monitors as well as digital projectors. You can use the same device to hook up 4 digital LCD monitors and deliver the presentation to four different locations in a single room. If you need to control several computer video presentations to many video displays, then you should look into a matrix type of DVI splitter.
