Gefen HDMI 1.3 splitters

Gefen today unveiled its new 1-to-5 HDMI 1.3 Splitter and 1-to-10 HDMI 1.3 Distribution Amplifier. The Gefen 1-to-5 Splitter for HDMI 1.3 accepts one audio/video input, such as a DVD player or set top box, and transmits the same signal to five displays. The 1-to-10 HDMI 1.3 Distribution Amplifier transmits one HDMI source to 10 displays, and both units accommodate larger distributions when 'daisy chained' with another splitter. Gefen's 1-to-5 splitter and 1-to-10 Distribution Amplifier are both rack mountable, and both are available for pre-order at $500 and $750, respectively.

The expanded HDMI 1.3 format allows for optional color and audio refinements along with an increased bandwidth for higher signal quality from high definition video delivered using HDMI.

The company suggests matching the source and destination displays for optimal and consistent results. The new splitters support all HD resolutions from 480p to 1080p.

"Both solutions enable a clean, simultaneous distribution of one high definition audio/video signal to multiple HDMI displays," Gefen said. "The instant delivery of HDCP-compliant video to several displays is desired in entertainment venues, public spaces, clubs, restaurants and event facilities offering a cutting-edge delivery of HDTV."
