Gefen Unveils Personal Video Recorders

Gefen's MPEG 4-Based Personal Video Recorders Enable HDTV On The Go

Amsterdam, Netherlands - Forget about lugging camcorders and disks around. Gefen's new Personal Video Recorders require a simple USB or SD storage device on which to carry video recorded from any set top box, DVD player or camcorder.


Based on the MPEG 4 format, Gefen offers two versions of the Personal Video Recorder -one for high definition viewing and one for low definition viewing. Both enable you to record video from one of two sources and take it with you.

To operate, users simply connect any standard USB or SD storage device to the Personal Video Recorder and select their desired video following intuitive prompts on the onscreen menu. The unit will record the video on the storage device, allow you to unplug it, and then view it on any computer that accepts USB or SD.

Both of Gefen's Personal Video Recorders offer a useful switching functionality between two sources, allowing the user to connect and access one of two sources from which to record.

The kit allows use of the video entry phone system via a door entry monitor as well as tablets and smartphones on the Wi-Fi network, or remotely on 3G (or higher) networks. The gateway in the pack allows connection of other devices (Comelit VIP door entry monitors or PCs) besides the door entry monitor supplied. In all cases, the gateway should be connected to an ASDL router or another device guaranteeing local Wi-Fi and mobile 3G connectivity. Depending on bandwidth limitations, the gateway can serve up to 15 appliances (including door entry monitors, smartphones, tablets and PCs) with 4 simultaneous door entry monitor streams. It also allows "intercom" communication between all of the 16 devices served. For mobile devices, whenever both modes are available and enabled, the app automatically switches. .
