HDMI Splitter Setup

With an HDMI splitter, you can connect a Pano system to a Polycom video system using two monitors.

Remember the following with this setup:

  • Monitor 1 shows far and near video.
  • Monitor 2 shows near and far content (only if the Pano system is in a session).
  • Annotations made to far content can be seen by all participants.
  • Users cannot directly connect their device to the Pano system using HDMI.
  • To share content during a meeting, you must first place a call on the Polycom video system and then start content.
  • You need three HDMI cables and a 4K HDMI splitter for this setup.

Polycom has tested and recommends an HDMI splitter by CSRET with the following specifications:

  • 1x2 HDMI Splitter Amplifier version 2.0
  • Certified for 4Kx2K (60Hz) and 3D 1080p
  • Supports 1 in 2 out signal distribution

You can use a different 4K splitter. If you do, make sure the specifications are comparable to those of the CSRET product.

The following diagram illustrates how the components for this setup are connected:
