(Virtual Press Office) -- Booth 746 – Gefen unveils two new GefenPRO 8x8 Matrixes for HDMI with either four or eight built-in ELR (Extra Long Range) extension modules based on HDBaseT. Both matrix switchers offer a one-box solution that can route HDMI long distances while integrating eight hi-def sources and eight HDTV displays or projectors.
The GefenPRO 8x8 Matrix for HDMI w/4 ELR switches eight sources to eight displays. Four displays can be connected locally using HDMI cables and four displays can be extended up to 330 feet (100m) using one CAT-5 cable per display.
The GefenPRO 8x8 Matrix for HDMI w/8 ELR switches eight sources to eight displays, and extends all eight displays up to 330 feet (100m) using one CAT-5 cable per display.
For both solutions, small footprint receiver units connect to the display, delivering 1080p full HD with 3DTV pass-through and multi-channel audio. With the use of Gefen's POL technology, all receiver units do not require an external power supply at the display location. Bi-directional IR is also sent over the same CAT5 cable providing a path for IR remote control of the source through the display. Gefen's FST (Fast Switching Technology) provides a timely switch when selecting sources with HDCP compliance.
Users control both GefenPRO Matrix Switchers from the front panel, web IP, IR or RS-232 connections. The LCD on the front panel shows all switching and routing status information and other default settings. Advanced EDID options ensure stability during switching for zero downtime. All GefenPRO products come with 24/7 technical support directly from Gefen.
