Lion Audio Video Consultants and DataColor Use Gefen 4x4 HDMI Matrix in Colorfacts and ISF Cert

Sophisticated source switching with multiple display support and plug and play capabilities makes Gefen's new 4x4 HDMI Matrix a valuable asset to any comprehensive audio/video system.

WOODLAND HILLS, CA - Designed to offer an easy method of connecting four high definition sources to four high definition displays, Gefen's 4x4 HDMI Matrix allows any source to be viewed on any display, with all eight devices operating simultaneously.

The rack mountable unit comes in a black enclosure, it's backside lined with four HDMI inputs, four HDMI outputs and an RS -232 interface. Matrix switching is controlled by IR remote or RS -232 serial communications systems.

Most recently, Lion Audio Video Consultants, in conjunction with Datacolor, used the Gefen 4x4 HDMI Switcher in their education and certification sessions at the 2006 CEDIA Expo in Denver, Colorado.

The two -day class, "Hands -On Calibration Training," included essential theories behind the creation of the calibrated image. Hands -on training included a variety of display technologies, and also allowed attendees to obtain ISF ( Certification.

The Gefen 4x4 HDMI Matrix enabled effortless switching between multiple sources, allowing on -screen comparisons, vibrant high definition imagery and robust digital audio delivery.

"The class room was 1280 square feet and we definitely needed an HDMI switching device to accomplish our audio/visual goals," said Gregg Loewen, president, Lion AV Consultants. "Gefen's new 4x4 Matrix was absolutely ideal for our needs and performed like a pro, right out of the box."

Moving forward, Lion AV Consultants will be taking Gefen's 4x4 HDMI Matrix on the road, where they'll be teaching ISF classes at various locations throughout the country including EH Expos, InfoComm and CES.

The Gefen 4x4 HDMI Matrix provides a simple and ideal solution for studios, entertainment venues, theaters, conference centers, educational facilities and any environment that sends multiple HDMI sources to multiple HDMI displays or projectors.
