The User(s) can switch between input sources for each outlet at the touch of a button using a wireless remote control.

For example, model TL-EMS-2x4 can be used in place of a 4 way splitter. The TL-EMS-2x4 (see left) allows the user to have a cable TV signal input and a second input of local RF signals, e.g., modulated security cameras, DVD, Antenna signal to four outlets of the signal distribution system. Model TL-EMS 2x4 can be cascaded for up to 20 outlets or can be combined with other Switchers for specialized signal distribution needs. For more information, see our RF Switchers page.
