Audio & Video Switches
Audio and video switches are semiconductor accessory parts used in switch configuration. Both audio and video switches have a feature called 'Moisture detection' which can help helps the device recognise false and improper attachments via moisture.
How do audio and video switches work?
Audio switches operate by helping to create a link between universal audio devices that may not typically be used together. For example, being able to connect your mobile phone to a different brand of headphones that normally may not be compatible (it's worth checking first what is compatible as not all devices can connect to an audio switch).
Video switches work by taking analogue signals and switching them to different types of outputs such as HDMI. An example of this would be being able to output your laptop device via HDMI to an external monitor.
