Chatsworth, California – Just in time for the arrival of stunning new 4K displays, Gefen is releasing three new Ultra HD Splitters for HDMI with the ability to send 4K video resolutions to multiple 4K displays at the same time.
Three Gefen ToolBox Ultra HD Splitters for HDMI 4k/2k provide a one input to two outputs (1:2), one input to four outputs (1:4) and one input to eight outputs (1:8) distribution system. Resolutions up to 4k are delivered to all connected 4K displays. Each splitter comes in a wall-mountable enclosure in a black or white finish for a convenient installation near the source or behind the connected displays.
All three Ultra HD splitters utilize Gefen’s Fast Switching Technology (FST), which vastly improves the HDCP authentication process. FST eliminates any video loss when powering on/off displays in the same distributed system. HDCP and 3DTV pass-through are fully supported. Digital audio formats including Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS-HD Master Audio are passed through along with video.
“Because these new 4k splitters also support 1080p full HD resolutions, they are ideal for any existing or newly designed A/V system,” said Hagai Gefen, president, Gefen. “These splitters maintain the Ultra HD video quality that’s perfectly suited for retail, exhibitions, and bar/restaurant type installations.”
All three Ultra HD splitters connect using standard, high speed HDMI cabling. Locking power supplies ensure a snug connection of power, and uninterrupted performance.
