Kramer Electronics has announced the introduction of the VM-28HDMI 2-input 1:8 HDMI distribution amplifier and the VM-216HDMI 2-input 1:16 HDMI distribution amplifier for use in large networks.

The VM-28HDMI and VM-216HDMI were originally designed directly for a customer requirement.  Kramer was approached with the need to distribute HDMI signals in a consumer retail application. 

The VM-28HDMI allows the distribution of one of two HDMI input sources to eight destinations and the VM-216HDMI allows distribution of one of two HDMI input sources to 16 destinations.
