Gefen ships FST enabled splitters

Gefen has announced shipping of two ToolBox Splitters, which boast Gefen Fast Switching Technology (FST) and 3DTV capability.

The company claims that sources using HDMI with HDCP (high-bandwidth digital content protection) will no longer introduce a delay when syncing. Furthermore HDMI v1.4 features are implemented to support 3DTV.

The ToolBox 1:4 and 1:8 Splitters for HDMI distribute any high definition source using HDMI and deliver it to either four or eight HDTV displays at the same time. Both products work with cameras, blu-ray players and set-top boxes.

For those integrating analogue devices or certain set-top boxes that will not work with more than one HDCP 'key', Gefen has included a physical bypass switch so users can select slow switching (no FST) if needed. Both splitters ship with the switch set to fast switching (FST-enabled).
