What is Distributed Video?
Distributed video allows a single video source, like a satellite receiver or Blu-ray player, to be shared between multiple TVs that are connected to a video switch. This can provide some pretty amazing advantages. The biggest of which is minimizing the amount of sources you would need for every TV in your house.
For example, if you have six TVs in your home and would like to watch satellite on all six of them, you will need to have six different satellite receivers, each one requiring a separate monthly fee. And how many times would you actually need to watch all six receivers at the exact same time anyway? It would be very seldom, if ever at all. Distributed video let’s you use just two or three satellite receivers for all of the TVs in your house, saving you on that monthly equipment cost.
