CHATSWORTH, CA — Anyone who’s ever tried to connect a Blu-ray player, set-top box and PlayStation 3 to the single HDMI input on a high definition display will appreciate Gefen’s new 3×1 HDMI v1.3 Switcher. This black, rack-mountable solution comes equipped with three HDMI inputs and one HDMI output, allowing users to switch between all three sources using the switcher’s IR remote. CEC source switching is fully enabled, while 1080p full HD resolutions are delivered instantly for each source, when selected.
Users have immediate, non-stop access to all three sources using the same high definition HDMI display or projector equipped to handle the next generation HDMI v1.3 format. This enables additional features like Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master audio with audio lip sync for the most engaging hi-def viewing experience available today.
Even better, the Gefen 3×1 HDMI v1.3 Switcher (MSRP $299) is simple to install and operate. Users connect up to three HDMI sources to the Switcher’s inputs, and their HDMI display or projector to the Switcher’s output. Three quality HDMI cables are included to connect the sources to the Switcher. An external power supply drives switching performance, which may be controlled by the Gefen IR remote or local, front-panel button.
