Gefen Offers Coax Cable and Cable-free Methods of HDMI Extension
Jun 14, 2007 12:00 PM
Connectivity solutions provider Gefen announced the availability of two new professional quality video scalers. The HD-SDI to HDMI and HDMI to HD-SDI scalers offer high-end scaling abilities that broadcast professionals will appreciate when integrating and testing audio/video systems.
Both employ Gennum's VXP GF9351 image processor that provides value-added features, notably genlock control, and proprietary 10-bit motion adaptive video de-interlacing capabilities to ensure perfectly timed video performance.
The HD-SDI to HDMI scaler allows consumer displays to be used for gauging video performance and testing, converting a HD-SDI source to HDMI format and scaling video in multiple HD resolutions to 1080p. It outputs digital audio embedded in the HDMI signals and mirrored in S/PDIF format.
The HDMI to HD-SDI scaler connects consumer video sources, such as games, satellite television systems, and HD DVD players, to the HD-SDI format, scaling the video in both dual- and single-link modes for standard- and high-definition resolutions.
Both scalers are installed with Gefen's trademark plug-and-play ease, requiring simple connections to perform. A simple menu guides users through advanced scaling selections including noise reduction, detail enhancements, frame rate conversions, test patterns, color corrections, and custom timing outputs.
