This HDMI audio encoder/embedder allows users to embed a new audio feed from 3.5mm/RCA L/R or optical audio source into a HDMI or DVI signal or converting the audio output from CD player or Hi-Fi system to HDMI .
Its typical A/V applications include:
- replacing the original HDMI audio with different audio sound track
- converting analog stereo or multi-channel digital sound to HDMI output for audio alone while no video content is required
- combining audio signal with DVI video together for HDMI format output
- freeing up audio input on your AV amp by routing the analog or digital audio input through HDMI input instead
This HDMI audio embedder supports 1 optical audio input, 1 of 3.5mm or RCA L/R input via adapter and a HDMI input. Users can select between audio input for conversion or encoding.
The audio embedding process is automatically performed in real time with no lags. The HDMI input supports resolutions up to 4Kx2K pixels and pass-through of all HDMI 3D video and deep color modes.
Real-Time HDMI Audio Encoding
This HDMI audio processor provides users with easy external ways to swap the existing digital audio in HDMI signal with different audio feed or adding audio to DVI signal or simply converting audio signal into HDMI format with no video content included.
