Gefen Announces Three New Splitters for High Definition Audio/Video Systems

Three professional-grade splitters from Gefen enable effortless audio and video distribution to multiple outputs.

Denver, CO - The 1:3 HDMI Splitter offers an inexpensive solution designed for those wanted to distribute high definition audio and video to different displays in the same room. It takes a single HDMI source and outputs three HDMI signals, each capable of displaying HDCP compliant high definition resolutions up to 1080p plus multichannel digital audio. Though engineered to support three HDMI displays, the unit can be integrated with other display interfaces when used with the proper adapter.


The 1:3 Component Audio Distribution Amplifier sends one component video source plus accompanying RCA analog audio (left and right channels) to three displays at the same time. A range of high definition resolutions are supported on all three outputs, from 480p up to and including 1080p.

The 1:8 Component Audio Distribution Amplifier ups the amount of audio and video outputs to eight, boasting complete high definition support up to 1080i, with both digital and analog audio inputs conveniently distributed along with the video in one unique solution. Digital audio enables a complete surround sound environment, making this of special interest to installers who need to adhere to their client's specifications, budget and demands.

"All three splitters provide the most reliable method of delivering high definition audio/video signals from one input," said Hagai Gefen, president and CEO. "Each is plug and play and provides support for some of the most desirable interfaces of today: HDMI and component, both with built -in audio support."

A source connection cable and external power supplies are included with each solution.

Additional information on the 1:3 HDMI Splitter (MSRP $349), the 1:3 Component Audio Distribution Amplifier (MSRP $199) and the 1:8 Component Audio Distribution Amplifier (MSRP $799) is available at Gefen.com.
