The HDA140 can be used to distribute a single source to up to four rooms, zones, screens or systems.

Sometimes you need to share the wealth of high-def. Instead of stacking a rack full of equipment, Tributaries can spread that HD signal via its HDA10 distribution amp.
This box may not look pretty on the outside, but who cares when four high-def streams are going strong? One HDMI signal goes in; four possibilities come out. That means one Blu-ray player, set-top box or receiver can power four rooms, four screens, four zones or four systems—as far as 100 feet away. Add another unit for a total of seven. Wait… is that the new math?
Either way, the HDA140 is fully HDMI 1.3 and HDCP-compliant and supports 1440p, Deep Color, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio and refresh rates up to 120Hz. Three LEDs on the front display the status of all of your HDMI/CVI, HDCP and SYNC goodness.
Tributaries says that the HDA140 is available now for $450.
