Gefens New 2:8 HDTV Distribution Amplifier Sends One HD Source to Eight HD Displays

WOODLAND HILLS, CA [March 29, 2004] Connectivity solutions provider Gefen
announced the release of a new high definition distribution amplifier that
sends one high definition television (HDTV) video source to eight HDTV
displays using DVI (digital visual interface) connectors.

The ex-tend-it 2:8 HDTV Distribution Amplifier splits the HDTV signal eight
ways enabling simultaneous, multi-display viewing. It is HDCP (high
definition content protection) compliant, ensuring that all high-resolution
data is accurately reproduced for optimum output. Because it provides two
DVI inputs, the 2:8 HDTV Splitter can also switch between two video sources.
Each source, when selected, will distribute up to eight video signals.

The 2:8 HDTV Splitter was designed for professional and commercial
environments that require multiple displays showing the same high definition
video information. It is compatible with high definition video sources such
as computers, DVD players and satellite set top boxes, and high definition
displays and projectors that utilize DVI connectors. When used with one of
Gefen’s HDTV extension solutions, each display can be extended up to
hundreds of feet from the source.

Available online at or through a Gefen reseller, the 2:8 HDTV
Distribution Amplifier has a suggested retail price of $1299. For more
