Gefen Releases New 8x4 CAT5 HDMI Matrix

Gefen's new 8x4 CAT-5 HDMI Matrix performs both matrix switching and signal extension, offering a convenient method of system integration.

CHATSWORTH, CA - Installers seeking an easy, plug and play method of accessing multiple hi -def sources from a few extended displays will find it particularly helpful.


It links any eight high definition video and audio sources using the HDMI format to any four HDTVs or projectors. Users can access one of eight sources on each display, so four hi -def sources can be viewed on four displays at the same time. Users select which source they'd like to view by using the IR remote or RS -232 connection.

With four local HDMI outputs and CAT -5 connections, this Gefen Matrix allows all four displays to be connected either locally using standard HDMI cables, or remotely up to 150 -feet (50m) away using two CAT -5 cables. At this distance, hi -def resolutions are supported at 1080p full HD. Resolutions to 1080i can extend over CAT -5 cables up to 300 -feet (100m).

This versatile matrix supports HDCP -compliance making it perfect for integrating Blu -ray players, set -top boxes and gaming systems with today's hi -def displays. The system provides HDMI cables for source connections, a power supply to drive performance, rack ears for easy mounting and IR remote.
