HDS-12i 2-Way Intelligent Splitter

Our second-generation 2-way HDMI splitter continues to provide conditioning to stabilize and correct signals from nonconforming HDMI devices. Full HDCP security and EDID protocol integrity ensure a reliable handshake between your source and each of the connected displays. While all of Transformative Engineering’s HDMI devices support: 3D, 2K x 4K, Deep Color, xV Color, High Speed transmissions, and all current HDMI Audio Formats; the HDS-12i creates a new category. This device solves problems previously considered impossible.

This Intelligent Splitter bridges the gap between HD and UHD with selectable ‘Scaling’ (from 1080p to 4K, or from 4K to 1080p) of output #2, while output #1 passes the original source resolution. In addion to scaling, output #2 can be configured as a pass-thru mode (simple 1 to 2 splitter) or AVR mode (a bypass solution which maintains multi channel HDMI audio to AV processors & receivers which do not support 3D or 4K, even when a connected 3D or 4K display’s EDID reports 2 channel audio only back to your source.

In fact, the HDS-12i is capable of doing so many things heretofore prohibited, that understanding your new options may require a bit of getting used to. The chart below is a basic feature guide of this new reality. Your applications will likely allow even more possibilities.


With the optional CCA-1 (Contact Closure Adapter), the HDS-12i ‘Trigger’ jack can provide electronic feedback to advanced control systems when a valid video path has been established. Think of it as an HDMI Video Sensor. A USB Mini port provides the ability to update the device’s firmware.

Scaler, Conditioner, Stabilizer, Splitter, Problem Solver.
The Bridge between 2K and 4K.
