Two HDMI DAs from Gefen Deliver HDTV over CAT-5 Cable

CHATSWORTH, CA — Connectivity solutions provider Gefen today announced the arrival of two new distribution solutions for digital high definition sources and displays using the HDMI format. Available in distributions to four and eight displays, both rack mountable units also enable the extension of HDMI audio and video beyond its specified limits over industry-standard CAT-5 cable.

The 1:4 and 1:8 HDMI CAT-5 Distribution Amplifiers include a sender unit that performs a seamless split of one HDMI input with delivery to multiple displays. Users have the option of ordering small, individual receivers for remote displays that must be placed a distance from the source.

Signals can travel up to 300-feet (100m) at resolutions to 1080i, and up to 150-feet (50m) at resolutions to 1080p. Multi-channel audio is delivered alongside the video using two CAT-5 cables that connect the HDMI source (sender) to the display (receiver). Both sender and receiver units are powered to ensure a high quality HDTV signal complete with HDCP compliance at both short and long range distances. If users opt to connect their HDMI displays directly to the sender, no additional power is needed.

Gefen’s 1:4 (MSRP $1999) and 1:8 (MSRP $2999) HDMI CAT-5 Distribution Amplifiers come with HDMI connection cables, including a six-foot cable that connects the HDMI source to the sender, and multiple one-foot cables that link the sender to the HDMI displays connected locally. Both units are currently available for pre-order at gefen.com or through an authorized Gefen reseller, listed here: http://www.gefen.com/dealers/worldmap.jsp
