    With HDMI, audio is packetised and inserted into the video blanking periods.

    As the video and audio are integrated together , removing audio is not a simple process.
    It can be done , but it depends entirely on what gear you have and its capabilities.

    The low cost solution is to Mute the Displays :) Otherwise you could be looking at around £120 Per Display and converting each HDMI signal to Component video or VGA (assuming the Displays support Analogue HD signals).
