Gefen Unveils Three Innovative HDTV Scalers Boasting Multiple Format Support and Conversion

Leading connectivity solutions provider Gefen announces three new high definition video scalers at CEDIA, offering plug and play capabilities and video outputs in multiple resolutions up to 1080p.

Denver, CO - Aimed at professionals and consumers for home studio/home theater use, the Gefen Home Theater Scaler comes equipped with two component video inputs, two HDMI inputs, one digital audio and one analog audio input, and one HDMI output. Sources can be scaled up and down before being output in HDTV resolutions ranging from 480i to 1080p. When using component video inputs, the Home Theater Scaler allows both digital and analog audio to be delivered to the display using a single HDMI connector.

Professional quality scaling options feature noise reduction, image enhancement and color correction to ensure the most pristine output resolutions and a fully immersing home theater experience. This scaler is controlled by its own IR remote, and provides an RS -232 port for serial communications systems.

The HD Mate Scaler allows any DVI source, including computers, game consoles such as Xbox 360, and HD DVD players, to be connected to any computer display using a DVI port. This allows a totally integrated electronics system, marrying computer and home entertainment systems in a seamless fashion. It is cross -platform in capability, supporting both PCs and Macs as well as HD displays and projectors featuring DVI. High definition resolutions can be scaled up and down before being output at the desired resolution for rich and defined HDTV viewing.

The VGA to DVI Scaler from Gefen performs a seamless analog to digital conversion while offering complete output scaling, accessed and controlled by the on screen display menu. Output resolutions support all VESA and HDTV resolutions, offering a plug and play method of not only converting analog to digital, but refining the output to ensure the most defined and luminous video possible.

Premiering at CEDIA Expo, all three Gefen scalers are expected to hit production in November 2006.
