Critical Infrastructure for Ultra HD

CEDIA Booth 1500----- CEDIA Media Day Preview: Table 6

Anyone interested in taking advantage of the latest 4K displays hitting the market will be interested in Gefen's newest 4K solutions. A selection of Ultra HD splitters, switchers and matrixes offers support for resolutions up to 4K and can be easily integrated into a system supporting both 1080p and 4K resolutions.


Gefen ToolBox Splitters are ideal for sending one Ultra HD source to two, four or eight displays at the same time. HDCP compliance, 3DTV pass-through and Gefen Fast Switching Technology (FST) are included to stabilize the signal distribution. FST eliminates video loss when powering on/off displays in the same distributed system. The 1:2, 1:4 and 1:8 Splitters for HDMI 4K/2K come enclosed in a wall mountable frame that can be mounted near the source or behind the connected displays. Digital audio formats including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio are also supported. Locking power supplies ensure secure connection.

The Gefen ToolBox 4x1 Switcher for HDMI 4K/2K allows four sources to be connected to the same display with source selection controlled by IR remote, IP, RS-232 or front panel selection. Gefen FST ensures HDCP compliant resolutions up to 4K are delivered with minimal latency. Support for lossless audio formats completes the feature set.

The Gefen ToolBox 6x2 Matrix Switcher for HDMI 4K/2K connects up to six sources to two independent displays with full cross-point routing, and features two TOSLINK optical digital audio outputs that provide audio de-embedded from HDMI. The Gefen ToolBox 4x4 Matrix Switcher for HDMI 4K/2K connects four sources to four displays with full cross-point routing. Both matrix switchers include Gefen FST to improve the switching time and pass through 3DTV with minimal latency. Features include wall mountable enclosures, locking power supplies, RS-232 control, IP and IR control.
