Gefen unveils 1x5 HDMI splitter for simultaneous HDTV
Gefen has announced the availability of its 1x5 splitter for HDMI v1.3. This new distribution solution accepts one HDMI signal from Blu-ray players, DVD players, set-top boxes, or digital video recorders, and delivers the same audio and video to five HDMI displays and projectors at the same time.
Greater signal distributions can be achieved when cascading two or more splitters together. With support for the full scope of the HDMI v1.3 format, this splitter passes through HDCP-compliant video in resolutions up to 1080p full HD. Multichannel audio is delivered alongside in Dolby TrueHD and DTS master audio formats with lip sync.
Installation is plug-and-play easy, requiring a source connection to the splitter’s HDMI input using the 6ft HDMI cable that comes in the package. Five flat-panel displays and projectors connect directly to the splitter’s five HDMI outputs.
