WOODLAND HILLS, CA — Sophisticated source switching with multiple display support and plug and play capabilities makes Gefen’s new 4×4 HDMI Matrix a valuable asset to any comprehensive audio/video system.
Designed to offer an easy method of connecting four high definition sources to four high definition displays, Gefen’s 4×4 HDMI Matrix allows any source to be viewed on any display, with all eight devices operating simultaneously.
The rack mountable unit comes in a black enclosure, it’s backside lined with four HDMI inputs, four HDMI outputs and an RS-232 interface. Matrix switching is controlled by IR remote or RS-232 serial communications systems.
Most recently, Lion Audio Video Consultants, in conjunction with Datacolor, used the Gefen 4×4 HDMI Switcher in their education and certification sessions at the 2006 CEDIA Expo in Denver, Colorado.
The two-day class, “Hands-On Calibration Training,” included essential theories behind the creation of the calibrated image. Hands-on training included a variety of display technologies, and also allowed attendees to obtain ISF (www.imagingscience.com) Certification.
The Gefen 4×4 HDMI Matrix enabled effortless switching between multiple sources, allowing on-screen comparisons, vibrant high definition imagery and robust digital audio delivery.
“The class room was 1280 square feet and we definitely needed an HDMI switching device to accomplish our audio/visual goals,” said Gregg Loewen, president, Lion AV Consultants. “Gefen’s new 4×4 Matrix was absolutely ideal for our needs and performed like a pro, right out of the box.”
Moving forward, Lion AV Consultants will be taking Gefen’s 4×4 HDMI Matrix on the road, where they’ll be teaching ISF classes at various locations throughout the country including EH Expos, InfoComm and CES.
The Gefen 4×4 HDMI Matrix provides a simple and ideal solution for studios, entertainment venues, theaters, conference centers, educational facilities and any environment that sends multiple HDMI sources to multiple HDMI displays or projectors.
