The 1399 with port-by-port EDID management is designed to distribute video signals to multiple displays in a retail environment. The latest chipsets allow 4K video signals to be scaled automatically to match each display’s optimal resolution and video format. With this capability it is no longer necessary to divide TVs on display into separate distribution systems, according to their resolution. Link multiple distribution amplifiers to create a hub-and-spoke layout for large distribution systems.

The 1399 passes 3D signals. Bitstream audio is also supported - including LPCM 7.1 channel uncompressed audio, Dolby Digital TrueHD (7.1), DTS HD: Master Audio (7.1), and Dolby Atmos (7.1.4). Legacy codecs such as Dolby Digital and DTS core are also supported.
