Gefen now shipping 4K video over IP units
Gefen is now shipping two 4K video over IP products, the sender and receiver KVM units (the EXT-UHDV-KA-LANS-TX and EXT-UHDV-KA-LANS-RX) join existing video over IP products and add 4K support, a built-in scaler, videowall capability, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), and digital/analog audio break-out.
The new products can transmit 4K video content up to 3840 x 2160 at 60 Hz and 4:2:0 Chroma subsampling. Both products support HDMI input resolutions up to 4K 60Hz 4:2:0 and output resolutions up to 4K 30Hz 4:4:4, HDCP 2.2 and 1.4, and 7.1 channels of HBR (High Bit Rate) lossless and LPCM digital audio up to 330 feet.
Additionally, both the Sender and Receiver units support the concurrent connection of a VGA and HDMI device. The Sender acts as a switcher, allowing the user to select either the analog VGA input or digital HDMI input as a source for the video over IP network. A local VGA output is also available to monitor either selected signal. On the Receiver, the VGA and HDMI outputs are both active and function as a video splitter, providing analog and digital outputs for nearly any display present. The VGA input and output support VESA resolutions up to 1920x1200 at 60Hz (WUXGA). This product also provides RS-232 and 2-way IR routing between the Sender and the Receiver units, allowing the transfer of IR commands and RS-232 communications among all sources and the displays.
