Gefen intros 4K Ultra HD 600 MHz 1:2 Scaler

Gefen has announced its 4K Ultra HD 600 MHz 1:2 Scaler with EDID Detective and Audio-De-Embedder (EXT-UHD600A-12-DS) is now shipping worldwide.

The splitter incorporates scaling, EDID management, and audio break-out functions. It has independent scalers built into each of its two HDMI outputs, one output can downscale a 4K 600 MHz signal to 1080p Full HD, while the other can upscale an HD signal to 4K Ultra HD 600 MHz.

EXT-UHD600A-12-DS also features EDID management with built in, pass-through, and user EDID capabilities. It also works with Gefen’s Syner-G software for configuration and firmware updates.

The 1:2 scaler also de-embeds audio from HDMI, and outputs it as L/R analogue and Toslink Optical Digital Audio (two channel LPCM, and up to 5.1 channels of Bitstream). 

Multichannel digital audio including 7.1 channels of LPCM and HBR (High Bit Rate) digital audio formats, such as Dolby Atmos, Dolby TrueHD, DTS:X, and DTS-HD Master Audio are passed through to both HDMI outputs. 

The 4K Ultra HD 600 MHz 1:2 Scaler with EDID detective and Audio-De-Embedder accommodates resolutions up to 4K Cinema-DCI (4096 x 2160 to 60 Hz 4:4:4) and 4K Ultra HD (3860 x 2160 to 60 Hz, 4:4:4), while High Dynamic Range (HDR-10 and Dolby Vision) capability is also built in. HDCP 2.2 and the legacy HDCP 1.4 are both supported. The scaler also supports 1080p full HD, WUXGA (1920 x 1200 to 60 Hz), 3DTV (1080p), and 12-bit Deep Color (1080p).

It is suitable for use in bars, restaurants, clubs, venues, and corporate offices.
