Next Generation HDMI v1.3 Solutions from Gefen Deliver Just-in-Time Methods of Extending, Integrating and Distributing HDTV Systems


Amsterdam, Netherlands –In a move that lends support for HDMI v1.3, connectivity solutions provider Gefen demonstrates several new solutions at IS Europe designed to support the expanded format. All operate with Gefen’s plug and play methodology, offering both professionals and consumers an easy method of enhancing their HDTV systems with add-on support.

Switchers for HDMI v1.3

When a high definition television needs access to more than one video source, Gefen’s selection of switchers enable an easy way to integrate multiple sources with one HDTV. The new 4x1 Switcher allows four sources, such as satellite set-top boxes, disk players and gaming systems to be connected to one display or projector. A 3x1 Switcher connects any three sources to one display. Access to any source is easily controlled by the switcher’s IR remote or by pressing front-panel buttons on each unit. HDCP-compliant video in resolutions up to 1080p with eight channels of digital audio is switched for all sources, enabling a true high-definition performance.

Distribution Amplifiers for HDMI v1.3

Two new distribution amps designed for the expanded HDMI v1.3 format include a 1:10 Distribution Amplifier that accepts one high definition signal and delivers it to ten remote displays. A 1:5 Distribution Amplifier splits one signal and delivers it to five displays. HDCP compliance and high definition resolutions are supported up to 1080p, and each amp comes with individual receivers for remote destinations and local connection cables.

HD-1000 Extender for HDMI v1.3

This enhanced extension system delivers high definition video and multi-channel audio up to 100 meters from the source to the display using fiber optics cables linked by Gefen’s sender and receiver system. It is compatible with all disk players, satellite set top boxes and displays that use HDMI including the expanded HDMI v1.3 format. High definition resolutions are supported up to 1080p with complete HDCP compliance to ensure a flawless remote performance.
