New High Definition Audio/Video Switchers from Gefen Integrate Gaming Consoles and More

Gefen's new HDMI Switchers control two or more audio/video components, including DVD players, satellite set top systems and now video gaming consoles, using a single HD display.

Indianapolis, IN - Gefen's new HDMI Switchers incorporate fun for the whole family. Control of two or more audio/video components, including DVD players, satellite set top systems and now video gaming consoles, using a single HD display is made possible with Gefen's line of HDMI Switchers.


Each switcher has two or more HDMI source inputs (DVI computers and displays can be accommodated with a DVI to HDMI Adapter) that support HDMI compliant devices as well as gaming consoles using HDMI such as the Sony PlayStation 3, anticipated for release in Spring 2006.

Connecting several sources to one display and switching between them with an IR or RMT remote control gives immediate access with no downtime and no shuffling of cables in the background.

Several new Gefen models offer various alternatives at competitive prices: the 2x1 HDMI Switcher (MSRP $ 249) comes with two HDMI inputs/one HDMI output; the 3x1 HDMI Switcher (MSRP $299) with three HDMI inputs/one HDMI output; and the 4x1 HDMI Switcher (MSRP $495) with four HDMI inputs/one output.

Full HDCP (high bandwidth digital content protection) compliance is built into each unit, proving precise system switching according to content protection guidelines.

A plug -and -play installation makes system set -up a breeze. Sources are connected to the Switcher's inputs and the display to the Switcher's output. A 5 -volt power supply feeds the system.
