HDMI splitter for monitoring 2 cameras with 1 monitor

Meant to say switcher not splitter. Anyway, upcoming travel, trying to reduce the payload. Anyone use this or something like it?

Pros/cons? Thanks.

Re: HDMI splitter for monitoring 2 cameras with 1 monitor

I have one at home for switching the BluRay and the XBox 360...

Coboc HA-HMSW-3X1PT 3 Port 3 in 1 out Pigtail HDMI V1.4 Amplified Switch switcher w/ 3D HDCP 1080P Support, with 3ft Pigtail Cable - Newegg.com

...it's not like a genlocked camera switch obviously...it goes black and kind of comes back up in a second. I've never evaluated it for image clarity loss of anything like that.

I don't really know why it wouldn't work other than cable length (long cable runs coming to it?). For this type of cost, I'd say it's worth ordering one to test out.
