HIGH DEFINITION VIDEO SOURCE DISTRIBUTED TO EIGHT HDTV DISPLAYS WITH GEFEN'S 2:8 HDTV SPLITTER

Multiple, simultaneous, high definition video viewing enabled with Gefen`s 2:8 HDTV Splitter, a distribution amplifier that is designed to accommodate two input sources and eight output displays.

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND [February 3~5, 2004] A new high definition distribution amplifier from Gefen allows two high definition television (HDTV) video sources to output to eight HDTV displays using DVI (digital visual interface) connectors. The ex -tend -it 2:8 HDTV Distribution Amplifier splits the HDTV signal eight ways enabling simultaneous, multi -display viewing. The product is HDCP (high definition content protection) compliant, and fully equipped to ensure that all high resolution data is accurately reproduced for optimum output capability. Because it provides two DVI video source inputs, the 2:8 HDTV Splitter offers the user the additional option of switching the video sources; either source, when selected, will distribute up to eight video signals.


The 2:8 HDTV Splitter was designed for professional and commercial environments that require multiple displays showing the same high definition video information. It is compatible with high definition video sources such as computers, DVD players and satellite set top boxes, and high definition displays and projectors that utilize DVI connectors. It's powered by an external power supply, retails for $1299 and is available to order online at
