Gefen Announces its Gefen TV Line of Solutions for Prosumers and HD Savvy Consumers

New Line Caters to Home Theater Enthusiasts

CHATSWORTH, CA - In response to market demands and in an effort to make professional quality solutions more accessible to home users, Gefen is manufacturing a new line of add -on HDTV solutions called Gefen TV. This line is based on Gefen's professional series solutions, but packaged differently. Their streamlined, user -friendly enclosures allow for simple, plug and play connections among today's selection of HDTV equipment.


"This way, consumers won't have to rely on an in -depth knowledge of audio/video systems to create a high quality and still impressive home theater set up," said Hagai Gefen, president and CEO. "The solutions are also priced more competitively to appeal to a wider audience beyond the A/V professionals who demand the finest quality for their systems."

One of the first Gefen TV solutions is currently shipping: a Gefen TV Switcher. It enables you to connect up to four different HDTV sources to one display or projector using HDMI connectors, giving direct access to all four sources at the press of a button. If that's too much trouble, the unit offers automatic switching, a feature that recognizes a recently powered device and switches to it automatically.

The Gefen TV Switcher is HDMI v1.3 compliant so it will work with some of the most cutting -edge HDTV devices including high definition gaming systems and disc players. HDCP -compliant audio and video is delivered in all high definition resolutions up to 1080p for the most vivid imagery available in high definition today.

Additional Gefen TV solutions are currently in development, which the company expects to release throughout the year. Two previously announced solutions, the SD and HD Personal Video Recorders, are also being marketing under the Gefen TV brand.

The DVR-LB1 lockbox has been designed specifically for the peace of mind of those who require DVRs be installed in specific settings that may be prone to theft or vandalism. High-end electronics have become a staple in today's security, CI, residential, and commercial marketplaces. As these expensive technologies and equipment, including DVRs, find homes in more and more commercial and professional settings, additional security measures need to be taken to insure these electronics are not harmed or stolen. The DVR-WA are a pair of heavy duty, easy-to-install DVR lockbox wall mounting arms designed to work in conjunction with VMP's acclaimed DVR-LB1 and DVR-LB3 DVR lockboxes. The DVR-WA allows the installer and end-user to free up much needed shelf space, as well as provide for additional security measures.
