WOODLAND HILLS, CA – June 21, 2005 – The latest trend in HDTV switchers allowed the connection of multiple video sources to one display for easy access to one of several sources. Now you can just as easily integrate multiple televisions and displays to a single source.
Gefen’s new 1×4 DVI Monitor Switcher works in reverse from its traditional switchers, supporting the connection of up to four displays to one high definition video source.
It is designed to switch the video between several monitors for applications commonly used in broadcast, post-production, entertainment, retail, security and educational industries.
Users select which monitor will display the video with an IR remote control. Switching is performed with no down time and high resolutions up to 1080p and 1920×1200 are supported.
Gefen’s 1×4 DVI Monitor Switcher is also HDCP (high bandwidth digital content protection) compliant and will pass through high definition video intact.
“We devised this model to augment our growing line of HDTV switchers,” said Hagai Gefen, president and CEO. “It seemed the logical next step to support those audio/video systems that need to assign video to specific rooms in the home or office, or in more commercial environments such as post-production.”
Gefen’s 1×4 DVI Monitor Switcher (MSRP $399) comes equipped with one DVI input, four DVI outputs and one 5v power supply. It is available to order online at www.gefen.com or through an authorized Gefen reseller.
