The Gefen EXT-HDFST-848CPN Matrix Switcher allows you to route any eight HDMI inputs to any eight HDMI outputs. This unit supports up to 1080p Full HD with Deep Color and multi-channel digital audio. It supports 3DTV, and Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio, for uncompromised audio/video entertainment. Each source can be controlled through the front-panel push buttons, the IR remote control, the RS-232 port, or the IP by using the Web interface or Telnet.

This review is from: Gefen 8x8 Crosspoint Matrix for HDMI EXT-HDFST-848CPN
Pros: Machine has 8 HDMI inputs and 8 HDMI Outputs. You can display any of the inputs to any output you want. It lets you have only one input at a time per output; however you can make whatever combinations of inputs/outputs you want. Even lets you have one input on all outputs. The signal seems strong even when you have all or one.
Cons: I'd make sure you have a firewall on this one as the built in web server is not encrypted. Someone else in your network and anywhere in between may be able to get your login password with the correct tools. You can only have two users on this.
Other Thoughts: This is professional grade gear.
