Two New Switchers From Gefen Offer HDTV Integration With Serial Communications Control

Sep 14, 2006 12:05 PM

Gefen continues to build on the success of its high-definition video switchers, offering a new 8x1 DVI switcher and enhanced 4x1 HDTV switcher for multiple source integration.

Featuring plug-and-play capabilities, both switchers enable users to access multiple high-definition computers and sources using just one input on any high-definition display.

The 8x1 DVI switcher comes in a rack mountable case, providing eight DVI inputs and one DVI output. This enables multiple high-definition audio/video sources, such as HD DVD players and computer systems, to be accessed using the single DVI connector on any HD display.

Users access their preferred source using the IR remote that comes with the unit or through the RS-232 port, allowing for serial communications system integration and control. Each source is capable of sustaining high-definition video in resolutions up to 1080p or 1920x1200 offering a robust visual experience.

The 4x1 HDTV switcher offers enhanced features, such as local switching on the unit plus RS-232 and IR remote control. The compact box comes with four DVI inputs and one DVI output.

The unit supports computer systems, DVD players, and satellite set top boxes equipped with DVI. This allows computers and electronics devices to be integrated seamlessly and viewed interchangeably using the same DVI port on an HDTV display.

Both of these new switchers are currently available to order.
