Gefen Unites TV and PC Video Sources, Outputting Scalable HDTV Resolutions for an Integrated Home Entertainment System

WOODLAND HILLS, CA — Connectivity solutions provider Gefen today announced the latest addition to its growing line of cost-effective scalers for the home or business. The Gefen HD Mate Scaler offers much-needed functionality when combining different standard and high definition video sources and outputting each to the single connector on any DVI display.

Essentially it performs three separate tasks: it integrates different video formats and converts them to DVI; it scales video up and down in all HD resolutions; and it enables access to three sources using one display so you don’t have to unplug sources. Everything is connected all the time.

The plug and play unit comes equipped with one DVI and two component video inputs, supplemented by digital TOSlink audio and RCA audio inputs. It supplies a single DVI output, with audio output in digital or analog formats, depending on the audio/video source selected.

Video is delivered in a pure digital format, with HD video scaling offered in resolutions ranging from 480i to 1080p for the most vivid imagery possible.

The unit works with all DVI sources and displays, including cross-platform computer systems such as Apple’s line of HD DVI displays, making it a key solution for any integrated digital video system.

The HD Mate Scaler’s source switching capability is controlled through the unit’s IR remote, giving you access to any one of the three sources within seconds.
