Gefen Brings Ultra Wideband -based HDMI Solutions to NAB offering Coax Cable and Cable Free Methods o
Gefen today announces a revolutionary method of extending HDTV over coax cable for high-definition video and multi-channel digital audio delivered through HDMI connectors.
Las Vegas, NV - The plug and play HDMI over Coax cable solution allows any A/V source with HDMI connectors to be extended up to 300 feet from the display or projector using a single coax cable.
In addition, the company's Wireless for HDMI extension solution delivers the same high quality HDTV extension using ultra wideband (UWB) wireless technology for easy in -room connections of high -definition video sources to HDTVs.
Both solutions utilize Tzero Technologies' UWB technology combined with Analog Devices JPEG 2000 video processing and Gefen's HDMI expertise in delivering pure digital video with resolutions up to 1080p with digital audio.
Each extension system operates through compact transmitter and receiver units that offer HDMI audio and video extension with full HDCP -compliance, CEC control and additional IR remote pass through.
NAB attendees can see demos of the new HDMI over Coax and Wireless for HDMI cable -free extenders at booth SL 2305 throughout the show.
Pre -ordering will begin June 2007.
