Gefen extends HDMI range

Connectivity solutions provider Gefen has announced the availability of two new companion products for matrix switching systems using HDMI. Both CAT-6 cable-based extenders support 3DTV for an instant delivery of 1080p full HD and multi-channel audio.

4X CAT-6 Extender for HDMI

This single rack-mounted extender can be combined with any Gefen 4x4 matrix product. It extends all four connected outputs over CAT-6 cable up to 200 feet (60m) to the remote HDTV displays, streamlining any installation that requires HDTV displays in different locations. One CAT-6 cable placed between the sender and receiver unit(s) delivers 1080p full HD with 3DTV, multi-channel audio, Gefen’s FST (Fast Switching Technology), IR remote, RS-232 and IP control. The sender includes four sender units in a one rack-mount solution that can fit next to any mounted 4x4 matrix system. Four individual receiver units connect the displays to the sender.

8X CAT-6 Extender for HDMI

This companion extender for Gefen 8x8 matrix products allows all eight connected outputs to be extended up to 200 feet (60 m) from the sources using one CAT-6 cable per display. One CAT-6 cable transmits 1080p full HD video with 3DTV, multi-channel audio, FST (Fast Switching Technology), IR remote, RS-232 and IP control signals from the selected source (connected to the matrix) to the remote destination (display). The sender includes eight sender units in a one rack-mount solution for convenient access to the matrix system. Eight individual receiver units connect the displays to the sender.
