NOTES about HDMI Audio
- HDMI audio can only be utilized when also capturing
HDMI video. For example, if you have an HDMI input and a VGA input
connected on Channel 1, you could not use VGA for video and HDMI for
- All selected audio inputs are mixed. Meaning
if HDMI audio is enabled for either/both video channels, the sound
feed from HDMI input(s) will be combined and synced with the Audio
channel feed (Balanced or Unbalanced). To use ONLY the HDMI audio,
select None or Mute for the Audio channel input
(depending on where the configuration is being done - the Echo360
UI or the front panel of the PRO.
- We currently support two channel PCM encoded
audio over HDMI, however, high data rate encoded audio (like Dolby
5.1) is not supported.
