Need to hook several displays to a PC for a conference room? Or maybe you want to connect TVs in different rooms to one input? If so, you will need an HDMI splitter.
We have examined 11 great HDMI splitters, each of them with unique features. You might be able to find the right device from the reviews, whether you are looking for a 2- or 8-port 4K splitter!
Let’s begin our reviews!
JideTech 8-port HDMI Splitter – Best HDMI Splitter for Business Use
If you want the highest number of output ports, then JideTech’s HDMI splitter may be the right choice. This device splits 1 HDMI input to 8 outputs. Aside from that, it supports resolutions up to 4Kx2K, though it’s important to keep in mind that if you connect several displays with different resolutions, the splitter will output the signal on the lower resolution, which is typical for HDMI splitters. And yeah, the 4Kx2K resolution runs at only 30Hz.
JideTech’s HDMI splitter is HDCP-compliant, which means that the data transferred via the cables should be safe. In addition, this splitter supports hot plug-and-play, as well as daisy chain for mirroring the input to more displays.
- Has 8 HDMI out ports
- 4Kx2K resolution support
- 100 – 240V power adapter included
- Supports daisy chain
- 4Kx2K runs at 30Hz
TILVIEW 5-port HDMI Splitter – Best HDMI Switch for 4K
TILVIEW’s HDMI device is more of a switch than a splitter, since it takes in 4 inputs and transfers those to one output. Such a device would be useful for you if you wish to output data from 4 devices to 1 screen.
For increased convenience, the TILVIEW includes a remote control that allows you to scroll through the inputs remotely. Apart from that, this 5-port switch supports 1080p picture-in-picture. The max supported resolution of this device is 4Kx2K 30Hz.
A significant aspect to note is that this device isn’t HDCP-compliant, meaning that it would be inappropriate if you are concerned about security.
- Connects 4 inputs to 1 output
- Supports resolutions up to 4Kx2K
- Allows picture-in-picture 1080p
- Wireless remote control included
- Not HDCP-protected
- 4Kx2K runs at only 30Hz
OREI HD-102 1×2 1 Port HDMI Splitter – Best HDMI Splitter for 1080p
The OREI HD-102 has only two HDMI output ports, but that is actually good since this splitter splits 1 input to 2 output signals identical to the input. If you are concerned about quality more than about the number of outputs, then this device could be a perfect choice.
If you don’t really need 4K resolution, the fact that the HD-102 splitter supports only up to 1440p resolutions won’t be a problem for you. Besides, the HD-102 is also HDCP-compliant, so it should be good in terms of the signal’s security.
- Delivers output signal identical to the input
- Supports resolutions up to 1440p
- Doesn’t support 4K resolution
J-Tech Digital JTD0104 4-Port HDMI Splitter – Best 4-port HDMI Splitter for UHD
In case you need an ultra-high-resolution splitter with a good number of output ports, you should take a look at a J-Tech Digital JTD0104 HDMI splitter. This splitter distributes 1 input to 4 outputs at resolutions up to 3840 x 2160. And thanks to the HDCP compliance, you should expect this device to be secure.
A remarkable feature of this product is signal retiming, which could be useful if you wish to time the input signal. Another interesting feature is that it supports up to 4-layer cascades for you to mirror the input to a larger number of outputs.
- Supports resolutions up to 3840 x 2160
- Supports signal retiming
- Supports a 4-layer cascade
- Transits UHD at 30Hz
ViewHD 2 Port 1×2 Powered HDMI Mini Splitter – Best Compact HDMI Splitter
The ViewHD HDMI Mini Splitter could be a perfect choice for those who are looking for a compact splitter. In spite of its compact size, this device should have everything necessary for your needs.
The ViewHD 2-port HDMI splitter supports resolutions up to 1080p and is also HDCP-compliant, which could be much more important to you than the resolution. Interestingly, the ViewHD includes a 100 – 240V universal power adapter, which would come in handy during travel. The power adapter comes equipped with a US power plug.
- Includes a 100 – 240V universal power adapter
- Supports HDCP
- Max supported resolution is 1080p
Lebson-Tech Digital 1 in 4 out HDMI Splitter – Best 4-port HDMI Splitter for 1080p
A Lebson-Tech Digital 1 in 4 out HDMI splitter is much more affordable than typical four-output HDMI splitters, including some that we reviewed. Therefore, if you want a 4-output HDMI splitter for a good price, this model may be the best for you.
There are a couple of things you need to keep in mind, however. Lebson-Tech Digital’s HDMI splitter supports resolutions up to 1080p. Aside from that, it isn’t HDCP-compliant, which makes it unsuitable for those who need security.
In spite of being inexpensive, this HDMI splitter has a couple of interesting features. It supports cascading, and since this splitter can transmit a signal via about 50ft cables, you could mirror the input to a fairly good number of outputs.
- Good price
- Allows for about 50ft of signal transmission
- Supports splitter cascading
- Supports up to 1080p resolutions only
- Not HDCP-compliant
Gofanco Prophecy Intelligent 4K 1×2 HDMI 2.0 Splitter – Best HDMI Splitter for 4K
If you want excellent 4K performance, then have a look at the gofanco Prophecy Intelligent splitter. It is the only 4K splitter in these reviews that runs 4K at 60Hz. Apart from that, this device can output 4K & 1080p to two monitors simultaneously, unlike the other splitters that automatically choose the lower resolution for all outputs.
Another feature that you may like is that this splitter supports up to 10 cascade layers. And, of course, it is HDCP-compliant. However, all those quite interesting and useful features have a high price, which is the main downside of this splitter.
- Supports up to 10 cascade layers
- Works with up to 4K 60Hz resolutions
- Supports simultaneous 4K & 1080P output
- Fairly expensive
DotStone HDMI Switch Bi-direction 4K HDMI Splitter – Best Inexpensive HDMI Splitter
The DotStone HDMI Switch Splitter is possibly the most remarkable splitter we reviewed today. It is very inexpensive, yet boasts some features that are absent from the other splitters.
Firstly, this splitter is very compact and doesn’t require a power adapter, which should make it quite convenient. Secondly, this splitter is bi-directional, meaning that you can either split 1 input to 2 outputs or connect 2 inputs to 1 output. And surprisingly, this cheap splitter-switch also supports resolutions up to 4K, albeit the 4K runs at 30Hz.
As interesting as it is, though, this device probably won’t be able to compare with the more expensive splitters in terms of performance. However, it should be more than enough for home use.
- Supports 4K
- Doesn’t require a power adapter
- Not HDCP-compliant
- 4K runs at 30Hz
Kinivo 501BN Premium 5 port High-speed HDMI switch – Best HDMI Switch for 1080p
The Kinivo 501BN is yet another switch on our list, but it is somewhat different from the TILVIEW switch we reviewed earlier. This switch has 5 input ports rather than 4, but it doesn’t have such features as picture-in-picture and 4K support. If the number of inputs is more important than a higher resolution, this switch would probably be a better choice.
A useful feature of this switch is that it can choose inputs automatically based on their activeness.
However, the 501BN does come with a wireless remote for more convenience. Aside from that, it should be secure since it is HDCP-compliant.
- Transmits 5 inputs to 1 output
- Wireless remote included
- Can switch automatically
- Supports up to 1080p
Keliiyo HDMI Splitter 1X4 Ports – Best HDMI Splitter for Cascading
When it comes to price and features, a Keliiyo HDMI splitter is fairly similar to Lebson-Tech Digital’s splitter we reviewed earlier. However, there are a couple of differences that may propel you toward choosing this HDMI splitter.
To begin with, the Keliiyo HDMI splitter supports resolutions up to Ultra HD. Secondly, it is HDCP-compliant. And finally, it splits 1 input to 4 identical outputs, which isn’t something that HDMI splitters can do frequently. It also can transfer the input signal at distances up to 49 feet via a multi-layer cascade.
However, be aware that this device runs Ultra HD at just 30Hz.
- Fairly inexpensive.
- Resolutions up to UHD supported
- The UHD resolution operates at 30Hz.
USBNOVEL HDMI Splitter Cable 1 in 2 out – Best 2-port HDMI Splitter
Finally, in case you want only 2 output ports on your HDMI splitter, a USBNOVEL HDMI splitter may be the right choice for you.
Although this device has only 2 output ports, it packs a couple of interesting features. It supports resolutions up to 4Kx2K running on 30Hz; in addition, it runs 1080p on 120Hz for a smooth, stutter-free picture. This splitter is also HDCP-compliant.
What could be of most interest to you though is that this device is powered through a USB cable? This feature might make the USBNOVEL much more convenient for you than regular power plugs.
- 4Kx2K support
- Runs 1080p on 120Hz
- Powered by a USB cable
- 4Kx2K runs at 30Hz
