Gefen Shows New Matrix Switchers and Splitters for Ultra HD at NAB

NAB Booth SL 3824

Las Vegas, NV – (Virtual Press Office) -- Broadcasters preparing for Ultra HD (4k) displays can look to Gefen for a selection of signal distribution and integration solutions. Six new Gefen ToolBox products provide critical behind-the-scenes connectivity for the latest in high definition offerings.

Three new wall mountable Splitters provide 1:2, 1:4 and 1:8 signal distributions. A single source using HDMI to transmit resolutions up to 4k can be split to two, four or eight outputs. Each splitter includes automatic EDID management that preserves the integrity of the signal throughout the distribution. EDID also prevents a system disconnect when powering displays on or off. Lossless audio formats such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio are delivered alongside the video and all three splitters have pass through compatibility for 3DTV.

One 4x1 Switcher for Ultra HD (4k) offers an easy way to integrate of up to four sources using HDMI and one display. Users can switch between all sources using the same display. Two Matrix Switchers for Ultra HD (4k) include the 4x2 and 6x2 switchers. The 4x2 Matrix switches between four sources using HDMI and two independent outputs. Any source can be routed to either display at any time. The 6x2 Matrix uses a new Ultra HD chip technology that allows seamless switching between six sources using HDMI and two independent displays.

All three switchers use 300 MHz technology that enables seamless switching of Ultra HD resolutions. All include Gefen FST (Fast Switching Technology) to improve the speed of the HDCP authentication process. Wall mountable enclosures, locking power supplies, local switching buttons, RS-232 control, IR remote and two-channel/multi-channel audio switch selection are also included.
