Gefen's New HDMI v1.3 Extension Systems Shown at CES

Deliver High-Definition Video and Audio Anywhere

Las Vegas NV - Booth 21744 - Connectivity solutions provider Gefen brings two new high definition extension systems to CES: the HDMI v1.3 over Fiber Extender and the HDMI v1.3 over CAT -5 Extender.

Both allow 1080p full HD resolutions from Blu -ray players, game systems and set -top boxes to be sent over a single cable to a flat panel display or projector located across the room or the house. The use of just one cable to deliver deep color, high definition visuals with multi -channel digital audio supporting Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio allows integrators to streamline their installations and cut costs associated with dual or multiple cable runs.

The HDMI v1.3 over Fiber Extender uses a single mode fiber optics cable to send HDCP -compliant hi -def video up to 500 meters (1640 -feet) from the source, making it ideal for distributing HDTV throughout large venues. Small sender and receiver units are placed at local and remote locations, connected by one cable that ensures a timely and reliable signal transmission.

The HDMI v1.3 over CAT -5 Extender allows the expanded HDMI v1.3 format to be delivered over just one CAT -5 cable up to 50 meters (164 -feet) in distance. The ability to transmit hi -def visuals with deep colors and multichannel 5.1 surround audio over a single, industry -standard CAT -5 cable enables integrators to tap into existing cable infrastructures to save money during home theater installations.
Both extension systems come with Gefen's standard, two -year warranty.
