Meridian is pleased to introduce the Meridian HD621 HDMI audio processor. The clever design provides a 6-into-1 video switch allowing all HDMI-equipped components to be fed via a single cable to the display. Going a step further, the processor also separates up to eight channels of audio signal from the data stream at the HDMI source and provides audio-only outputs for connection to an existing Meridian surround controller. HDMI connectors are a common sight on HD video and other equipment. The HD621 includes Meridian's comprehensive FIFO buffering and resolution-enhancement system, similar to that used in the 800 series. This process cleans up and audibly improves the quality of incoming PCM digital audio signals, ensuring that the audio extracted from the HDMI stream is of the purest quality. Meridian has also included a configurable lip-sync delay to compensate for the potential system latency caused by video processing, which is commonly more time-consuming than audio processing.
