Gefen, the AV signal management unit of Core Brands has introduced its new EXT-UHD600 line of 4K 600MHz products, featuring three splitters, a 4×1 switcher and a 4×4 matrix. This HDCP 2.2-compliant product family takes the HDMI 2.0 platform to its highest level by enabling AV distribution at full specification of 4K 60 Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sub-sampling along with HDR (High Dynamic Range) support.
“This new line of 4K 600MHz products extends our ability to provide integrators with AV distribution solutions for any sized job. We’re excited to offer our dealers more capable and versatile product options than ever before,” says Core Brands’ Gefen product manager Jason Fitzgerald.
HDR delivers greater image contrast, vastly improving color depth between light and dark areas of a video image. 4K Ultra HD and 4K Cinema (up to 4,096×2,160), LPCM7.1, and HBR digital audio are also supported.
The new EXT-UHD600 series splitters support multiple layers of cascading in large video distribution and signage applications.
“These splitters are ideal for large AV distribution systems that require daisy-chaining multiple units to drive hundreds of displays without loss of picture quality.”
The switcher and the matrix feature flexible control options including the front-panel, IR, RS-232, Telnet/UDP, and Gefen’s intuitive web server interface. The Gefen Syner-G software simplifies configuration and allows advanced EDID management for the splitters, switcher, and matrix products. Additionally, all units accommodate Gefen locking HDMI cables for secure connections.
