Gefen's HD Video Switchers

Publish date:

Gefen unveiled three new high definition video switching solutions that offer plug and play capabilities and valuation features in addition to a simple method of accessing multiple computers from one workstation-a highly effective asset in many post-production environments.

The Gefen 4x4 DVI Matrix, newly revamped, allows a completely intermixed connection of four computers to four high definition displays using DVI connectors. Users can assign any computer to any display, independently, using the IR remote that comes with the unit. The rack mountable unit comes with an optional RS-232 port for serial control systems and offers full HDCP-compliance for HDTV content, allowing no degradation. Video resolutions up to 1920x1200 are sustained on all displays at all times. High-speed USB and audio support makes this matrix a unique and effective KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switching system, capable of multi-room or studio application.

The Gefen 4x1 DVI DL Switcher offers support for high definition displays and computer systems using dual link DVI connectors. It supports HD video resolutions up to 3840x2400 on all four computers, using one dual link DVI display such as Apple's 30-inch Cinema Display. Brilliant HD visuals are switched for each computer along with high-speed USB 2.0 peripherals for keyboard/mouse and audio to accompany the video, making this a complete KVM switching solution. Access is controlled by remote control.

The Gefen 8x1 DVI Switcher allows eight digital video sources, including computers, DVD players and satellite television systems, to be accessed, independently, using one digital video display. Users switch to their desired source using the IR remote; complete access takes less than 10 seconds. The 8x1 DVI Switcher comes with eight DVI source connector cables and rack ears for mounting.
