CHATSWORTH, CA - Integrating computer, legacy and digital devices is easy with Gefen's new Audio/Video Scaler Pro with Amplifier. This rack -mountable scaler works with today's popular interfaces, performs seamless source switching, and up -scales video to 1080p full HD while supporting audio amplification.

It offers volume control and two 20 -watts per channel speaker outputs so users can integrate audio and video equipment conveniently and easily.


For professionals working with various audio/video formats, the Gefen A/V Scaler Pro with Amplifier adds value by enabling plug and play connections among different devices. Video inputs are provided for HDMI (two inputs), DVI, VGA, component, composite and s -video. All video inputs come with separate audio inputs: HDMI with S/PDIF and Optical; and DVI/VGA, composite, s -video and component with analog stereo inputs. One HDMI output is offered with mirrored S/PDIF, Optical and stereo audio outs. The selected video source is delivered in the HDMI format, with audio embedded in the HDMI signal, and delivered separately.

With this assortment of inputs, the Gefen A/V Scaler Pro with Amplifier supports CD players, audio receivers, DVD players, set -top boxes, computers, Blu -ray players, gaming consoles, and more. Each source can be viewed on the same flat panel display, with video and audio refinements that enable simple system integration with a high -definition performance.

Dual performance scaling engines drive resolution scaling, while the advanced color engine technology refines colors, intensifies contrast and defines details such as skin tone. 3D noise reduction, frame delay, and adaptive de -interlacers enhance the scaling options, all accessible through the on -screen menu controlled by IR remote.

Installation requires simple connections between the A/V Scaler Pro with Amplifier and your audio/video devices; the package includes one 6 -foot HDMI cable to connect directly to the HDMI display. An RS -232 port is provided for integration with control systems.
