The Zektor HDS4 isn't actually a video switcher at all, in a sense. It has
5 RCA plugs for each input, and although they are labeled/colored for
video applications, the actual switching doesn't care what is connected to
each plug because it does no processing to the signal, but merely uses a
relay to switch. Because of this, you can use it "in reverse" and connect
one source to up to four displays.
The digital audio switching is active, however, and will not work "in
Because the switching does no processing, if you could figure out a way to
feed digital video through just 5 wires, the Zektor should work for this.
