NEW DVI ADAPTER FROM GEFEN CONNECTS SDI AND HD -SDI VIDEO SOURCES TO HDTV DISPLAYS

SDI to DVI Adapter converts SDI video outputs to DVI compatible signals for use with DVI displays and projectors.

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND [February 3~5, 2004] The ex -tend -it SDI to DVI Adapter is the newest Gefen converter to bring together disparate video sources and displays. In this case, it enables systems that output video data using SDI (serial data interface) or high definition SDI (HD -SDI) to display on digital flat panels, including high definition television (HDTV) displays equipped with DVI (digital visual interface). SDI sources can also be connected to any Gefen DVI and HDTV Switcher using the Adapter. Switchers enable multiple video sources to connect to one flat panel digital display, and provide a seamless method of transitioning between sources without unplugging or reconnecting devices.


The SDI to DVI Adapter ($999) is a unique device that essentially converts SDI and high definition SDI video data into a DVI output. It supports SMPTE, PAL and NTSC formats up to 1080I and is compatible with most DVI displays and projectors, including LCDs, plasmas and high definition televisions. The unit is equipped with two SDI inputs, one DVI output and an external 5VDC power supply, and is available for purchase and review at www.gefen.com or through a Gefen dealer, located around the world and also listed online.
