HD DVD players, satellite television, digital video recorders and game systems can all be connected and accessed by multiple HDTV displays with Gefen's new 4x4 HDMI Matrix, on display at IS China.
The plug and play unit comes equipped with four HDMI inputs and four HDMI outputs. Each input or source is assigned to one of the four outputs or displays, allowing multiple room venues to distribute HDTV throughout the environment with no networking required. An IR remote is included for control and an optional RS -232 port is also provided.
The Gefen 4x4 HDMI Matrix supports uncompressed HD video up to 1080p plus multichannel digital audio distributed in the same cable and connector. HDCP (high bandwidth digital content protection) compliance is included in the Matrix, allowing for protected content to be accessed at its highest resolutions.
Sources and displays equipped with DVI can be connected to the matrix with an optional DVI to HDMI adapter. 4x4 HDTV Matrix with four DVI inputs/outputs that supports HD digital video and computer components (1920x1080) is also available from Gefen.
