Gefen Implements "Fast Switching Technology" on All Products Using HDMI v1.3

Exciting Fast Switching Technology Resolves Slow Switching Time Between HDMI Source Selection for a Fast and Efficient Performance

CHATSWORTH, CA - Connectivity solutions provider Gefen today announced that all its HDMI v1.3 products are capable of using new Fast Switching Technology (FST).


This proprietary new technology emerged to better handle HDCP (high -bandwidth digital content protection) handshaking, which in the past could take up to ten seconds in transition when switching between sources.

With FST enabled, those ten seconds have been reduced to nearly no delay when switching sources, with high definition video appearing on the screen or display immediately with no latency.

"This new FST was initiated based on our customers' feedback to speed the switching time between HDMI input sources, and make the overall system more user friendly," explained Hagai Gefen, president and CEO, Gefen. "Though cutting down ten seconds may not seem like a long time, it was presenting challenges to installers when switching from component -based connections to HDMI, and now we have the perfect solution."

FST is currently being implemented on all current and newly developed Gefen products using HDMI specifications.
