Gefen Upgrades its DVI Solutions for New Generation of DVI and HDMI Standards, Offers Less ExpensiveDVI-Only Computer Solutions

WOODLAND HILLS, CA — October 19, 2004 — To accommodate the evolution taking place within the technology based on DVI and HDMI standards, and more clearly differentiate products designed for HDTV environments (using DVI and HDMI) versus computer systems (using DVI only), Gefen has released several changes to its DVI and HDMI switchers and splitters.

Essentially, Gefen re-engineered its HDTV Switcher, 4×1 HDTV Switcher and HDTV Splitter products to address connection issues between new DVD players and set-top boxes with DVI or HDMI ports and HDTV displays with HDMI inputs. The resulting new products are the HDMI Switcher, the 4×1 HDMI Switcher and the 1:2 HDMI Splitter, each equipped with more sophisticated electronics to best handle the HDCP
(high bandwidth digital content protection) and HDMI compliances.

The original HDTV switchers and splitters have been repurposed as less expensive DVI solutions for computer systems. These products, the Mini DVI Switcher, the 4×1 DVI Switcher and the Mini DVI Splitter, solve common computer connectivity problems while supporting DVI standards to the highest resolutions. All of Gefen’s reengineered DVI products offer compatibility and interoperability among the computer and display components currently being manufactured.

“It’s a natural progression as DVI is currently used primarily in the computer display industry, while HDMI is rapidly gaining momentum in the consumer-based HDTV arena,” explained Hagai Gefen, president, Gefen Inc.

HDMI is smaller, backwards compatible with digital and analog interfaces and includes digital audio with the video in the same cable. For HDTV systems that use DVI or HDMI ports, Gefen’s HDMI switchers and splitters are all fully HDCP compliant and support both DVI and HDMI standards, resulting in a product line that provides greater flexibility among electronics equipment in home theaters or any HDTV system.

Additional DVI products Gefen offers include the DVI Repeater, 2×2 DVI Switcher, 4×4 DVI Matrix and the 4×1 DVI/ADC Switcher, all accommodating DVI plus USB and analog audio as well as being rackmountable.
