GEFEN'S NEW 2:8 HDTV DISTRIBUTION AMPLIFIER SENDS ONE HDTV SOURCE TO EIGHT HDTV DISPLAYS

The ex-tend-it 2:8 HDTV Distribution Amplifier splits the HDTV signal eight ways enabling simultaneous, multi-display viewing.

WOODLAND HILLS, CA [March 29, 2004] Connectivity solutions provider Gefen announced the release of a new high definition distribution amplifier that sends one high definition television (HDTV) video source 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. It is HDCP (high definition content protection) compliant, ensuring that all high -resolution data is accurately reproduced for optimum output. Because it provides two DVI inputs, the 2:8 HDTV Splitter can also switch between two video sources. Each 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. When used with one of Gefens HDTV extension solutions, each display can be extended up to hundreds of feet from the source.

Available online at www.gefen.com or through a Gefen reseller, the 2:8 HDTV Distribution Amplifier has a suggested retail price of $1299. For more information, visit www.gefen.com or call (818) 884 -6294.
