Gefen Unveils Two New 4K UltraHD Matrix Solutions for HDMI w/HDCP 2.2

PETALUMA, CALIFORNIA, October 15, 2015 – Gefen, the industry-leading provider of audio/video signal distribution solutions for commercial and residential applications, today unveiled two next-generation 4K UltraHD Matrix Solutions for HDMI w/HDCP 2.2. These two rack-mountable matrix switchers support resolutions up to 4K Ultra HD at 60 Hz 4:2:0 and 4K Cinema (DCI - 4096 x 2160) at 30 Hz.  Each is ideal for situations where audio/video needs to be distributed to multiple screens in multiple rooms, from luxury homes to sports bars, classrooms and digital signage solutions for retail and beyond.

“These new matrix solutions are ideal for both commercial and residential applications,” said Gefen’s Tony Dowzall, “delivering 4K solutions that incorporate HDCP 2.2 for seamless single-system integrations.” For residential installations—of  particular interest to the CEDIA market—both the EXT-UHD-88 and GEF-UHD-89-HBT2 will route content from multiple HDMI sources, such as Blu-Ray players, satellite/cable boxes, gaming devices and other HMDI peripherals to multiple rooms/locations within the home. Now available, the Gefen 4K Ultra HD 8x8 Matrix for HDMI (EXT-UHD-88) routes eight 4K sources to any combination of up to eight 4K displays.

Shipping in Q4, the 4K Ultra HD 8x9 Matrix (GEF-UHD-89-HBT2) features 8 HDBaseT™ 2.0 outputs with Power over HDBaseT (POH) plus a local HDMI Output. It delivers full 8 x 2-way IR matrix functionality and RS-232 support.

Both new matrix products are fully supported by the Gefen Syner-G™ software suite, which features an advanced interface, ensuring effortless set-up of these network-enabled devices.

These and other Gefen solutions will be highlighted in the Core Brands CEDIA presentation at booth #4128.
