NAB2007: Gefen Connects With Wireless UWB HDMI
came to NAB2007 this week to talk up its new method of extending the capabilities of coax cable for high-def video and multichannel digital audio delivered via HDMI connectors (Booth SL2305).
The firm's new plug-and-play HDMI-over-coax cable scheme allows any A/V source with HDMI connectors to be extended up to 300 feet from the display or projector using a single coax cable, according to Gefen.
Also, the company is demonstrating its Wireless for HDMI extension that delivers HD content using ultra wideband wireless technology for such configurations as in-room connections of HD video sources to HD monitors.
Both schemes tap into Tzero Technologies'
UWB technology and JPEG2000 video processing from Analog Devices
. Gefen extenders can process HD up to 1080p. The extension systems operate via small transmitter and receiver units.
