Gefen Brings New Product Line and Enhanced Solutions to CES 2010

New product line, Gefen ToolBox, offers mini, portable connectivity solutions for audio/video system installs.

Las Vegas, NV - Digital connectivity solutions provider Gefen is demonstrating several upgrades to existing connectivity solutions and a brand new product line designed to ease home entertainment system installations at CES 2010.


"While we continue building a strong back -end for high definition audio/video systems, we are also focusing on further enhancing already proven technologies," explained Hagai Gefen, president and CEO, Gefen Inc. "This has led us to the development of a new product line, Gefen ToolBox, for installers working in the field."

The ToolBox offers compact installation tools for plug and play system installation and operation. Products come in metallic enclosures that can be mounted on any wall where hi -def audio/video systems are implemented, providing an attractive alternative to rack mounted systems.

These "mini" solutions include all connection cables for immediate installation, with HDMI connectors equipped with a locking mechanism to eliminate cable disconnects. Initial products packaged under the ToolBox line include a selection of audio/video switchers, splitters, extenders and cables for systems using the HDMI v1.3 or 1.4 formats.

Gefen will also be showing its third wireless high definition video extension solution, the GefenTV Wireless for HDMI 60Ghz extender, the first to deliver uncompressed 1080p/60 full HD video with multi -channel audio up to 30 feet in distance with no cables required.

Attendees are invited to stop by Gefen's booth (21722) in the South Hall at CES during expo hours to see demonstrations of all the new solutions.
