Indianapolis, IN Booth 3725
- (Virtual Press Office
) – Gefen brings its new desktop KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) extender to CEDIA, allowing laptops, tablets, Blu-rays and more to be extended up to 330 feet (100m) in distance using just one CAT-5 cable. The HD KVM ELR (Extra Long Range) for HDMI works with all flat panel displays equipped with HDMI and supports pass-through 3DTV. Gefen’s ELR technology is based on HDBaseT and bundles the delivery of 1080p full HD with USB peripherals for an excellent performance.
“This new KVM extender is designed to replace older versions that used two cables to reach the same distance,” said Hagai Gefen, president and CEO, Gefen. “The emphasis here is that you can extend hi-def video with your peripherals from a central location or equipment rack to wherever you want to place the display and peripherals.”
Complete KVM functionality allows you to operate your laptop, computer or video source from up to 330 feet (100m) away, freeing users to access computers and laptops from another room. Small desktop sender and
receiver units connect the computer or laptop to the remote display and keyboard/mouse. The HD KVM ELR for HDMI's sender and receiver units come with locking power supplies and EDID management to eliminate potential signal loss. USB data speeds reach up to 480 Mbps for an instant delivery. Small sender and receiver enclosures allow an easy installation.
