The Cadent HDMI Switcher solves the trying process of connecting smart TVs to smartphones or laptops. The Cadent HDMI Switcher from Salt Labs also boasts a list of added functions. Most impressively, the PolyView feature allows users to see on-screen thumbnails of each of the four inputs, making it much easier to bounce from device to device. Each source can be seen with a live picture-in-picture (PiP) preview.

Another feature, PolyShift, eliminates the wait in between switching your devices. Switching between inputs often means staring at a blank screen for 15 seconds before viewing your desired program. PolyShift can change screens in as fast as a second.

A wireless aluminum remote can be used to control the device. The matching sleek, modern exterior of the Cadent HDMI switcher is sure to add to your overall home theater set-up rather than being a glaring distraction.
