New Ethernet Extenders from Gefen Offer Easy Method of Delivering Data throughout the Home or Office

At InfoComm, Gefen demonstrates two Ethernet extenders: the GefenTV Ethernet over Power Line and the GefenTV Ethernet over Coax Extenders.

Each enables a plug and play method of Ethernet delivery using the existing cabling infrastructure, saving costs on long -distance cables. Both systems operate through small sender and receiver units; receivers are equipped with four Ethernet 10/100M ports to accommodate multiple connections, each capable of supporting up to a 200Mbps transmission for instant data delivery.


The GefenTV Ethernet over Power Line solution allows users to tap into any standard wall jack using in -wall power line cable to deliver the Ethernet to any room with a power jack, making Internet delivery supremely easy. Installation requires a connection of the Ethernet source to the sender, which is connected to a wall jack in the building. The receiver may be placed in any room, linked to another wall jack and delivering four Ethernet ports to be used as needed.

The GefenTV Ethernet over Coax extender uses standard coaxial cable to deliver Ethernet data throughout the home or office. In operation, the sender unit is connected to in -wall coax cabling, with the receiver placed in another room, connected to the existing cabling infrastructure. When connected and powered, both systems enable a simple method of extending the Internet signal without purchasing new cabling.

Both solutions will be demonstrated during InfoComm at Gefen's booth in the central hall: 1740.
