The Lindy HDMI 2.0a 4K Audio Extractor & Embedder performs a number of useful functions to help you overcome the challenges of installing AV equipment and is designed to be used in both domestic and commercial installations. Setting the Extractor Embedder up is quick and easy thanks to its simple to operate dip switch configuration, whilst its integrated mounting ears make it simple to fix in to position.

With support for Ultra HD 4K resolutions including both 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 and HDR 10 4:2:0 formats as well as HDCP 2.2 protected content the Extractor is compatible with the latest AV equipment.

In addition to Extracting audio it is also possible to embed audio in place of the original HDMI audio track, this can be done using with a TOSLink or 3.5mm stereo audio device connected to the corresponding input on the HDMI 2.0a 4K Audio Extractor & Embedder.
