Gefen Introduces Seven New Products at ISE 2013 Supporting Ultra HD 4K and 2K Resolutions

(Virtual Press Office) -- Stand 1-M80, Amsterdam, The Netherlands - Digital connectivity solutions provider Gefen will unveil three new HDMI splitters and four new switchers/matrixes all supporting Ultra HD resolutions up to 4k.

“Back-end connectivity is absolutely critical when you are working with Ultra HD resolutions and displays,” said Hagai Gefen, president, Gefen. “With seven new Gefen ToolBox Splitters, Switchers and Matrixes, integrators now have several options when it comes to distributing and integrating 4k video in commercial and business environments.”

The selection of Gefen ToolBox Splitters includes 1:2, 1:4 and 1:8 distributions, delivering Ultra HD video with audio in the HDMI format from a single source to two, four or eight displays. All come in wall mountable enclosures that can be discreetly mounted behind displays or racks for a clean installation. Built-in EDID management ensures the integrity of the signal throughout the distribution and retains signal purity when powering either the source or displays on/off. Lossless audio formats such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio are delivered along with resolutions up to 4k and 3DTV pass-through.

The Gefen ToolBox Switchers use 300 MHz technology capable of switching Ultra HD sources. The 4x1 is a four input/one output switch. The 4x2 is a small matrix allowing four sources to switch between two independent outputs. The 6x2 uses a new Ultra HD chip technology allowing seamless switching between six Ultra HD sources and two independent displays. All include Gefen FST (Fast Switching Technology) to speed switching time and improve the HDCP authentication process when handling protected content. Wall mountable enclosures, locking power supplies, local switching buttons, RS-232 control, IR remote and two-channel/multi-channel audio switch selection completes the features for all four switchers.
