he PureAV HDMI Interface 3-to-1 Video Switch allows you to connect to and switch among three high-definition, digital-video source devices through only one High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) or Digital Visual Interface (DVI)* connection on your high-definition television (HDTV).

Its quick adoption has made HDMI one of the most common audio video connections available. It is used on high-definition components, such as HDTVs, up-converting DVD players, HD cable/satellite boxes, entertainment computers, and the newly released Blu-ray® and HD-DVD players. This has created a bottleneck at the HDTV connection-with a common scenario featuring three HDMI/DVI sources to only one HDMI/DVI input. The PureAV HDMI Interface 3-to-1 Video Switch lets you connect three sources into one HDMI input on your HDTV. Then, simply select from among the source devices either by pressing the input-selector button on the Switch itself, or by using the included remote control to scroll to or directly select a source.

The Switch offers an ideal way to connect digital displays such as HDTVs, plasma displays, DLP TVs, LCD TVs, and projectors. HDMI also provides an all-digital connection between such source devices as HDTVs, DVD players/recorders, digital cable/satellite boxes, and AV receivers.

*Although there are only HDMI connections on this device, you can use an HDMI Interface-to DVI cable to connect and switch between DVI components.
