Gefen to Demonstrate Two Scalers at IBC
will showcase two of its upcoming switchers at IBC2007. The Gefen Home Theater Scaler Plus and the Gefen HDMI Scaler both enable the up/down scaling of high-definition video signals in all resolutions from 480i to 1080p while supporting the embedded audio in the HDMI signal.
The Home Theater Scaler Plus comes with two HDMI inputs, one component input with digital audio, and one composite/S-Video input with analog audio. The system performs seamless source switching among all four inputs, controlled by an IR remote. Component and composite/S-Video inputs are converted to HDMI with audio embedded in the signal. A unique feature is the independent audio output in both analog mini-stereo and digital Toslink formats. High-definition resolutions can be tweaked for noise reduction, audio lip-synching and color correction.
Gefen’s HDMI Scaler, conversely, offers a simple system that can synchronize and scale high-definition resolutions from an HDMI source to an HDMI display, which is useful when integrating equipment with different native resolutions or achieving a true 1080p output. The HMDI Scaler offers the same features for image quality and refinement including color corrections, deinterlacing, noise reduction and audio lip-synching as the Home Theater Scaler Plus.
Gefen will be in Stand 7.131.
