New Digital Audio Decoder from Gefen Extracts Audio from an HDMI Source to Connect Digital or Analog A/V Receivers for Easy Audio Integration

Gefen introduced CEDIA attendees to its innovative Digital Audio Decoder, which incorporates high definition video systems and existing, amplified audio systems.

The Digital Audio Decoder sends audio from an HDMI source to an existing hi -fidelity audio system in a complementary format, allowing plug and play connections among old and

new audio equipment.

Equipped with one HDMI input, the Decoder splits this incoming HDMI signal, delivering two mirrored HDMI outputs. One may be sent to an HDMI display or projector, and one may be connected to existing audio systems. However, this
product offers decoded or downmixed audio on both HDMI outputs, with the decoder capable of up sampling, down sampling, decoding Dolby, and passing through high bit -rate formats. This makes the Digital Audio Decodes an invaluable tool for the audiophile seeking the best method of integrating components with optional audio refinements.

Gefen also is showing a streamlined Digital to Analog Audio Converter equipped with coax and TOSlink inputs, and one analog left/right stereo output. It supports Dolby formats in coax or TOSlink outputs, allowing today's digital audio systems to be output in analog stereo format for integrating legacy stereo components in a digital system.
