Gefen rolls out HDMI 2.0a compliant matrix products
Gefen from Core Brands recently unveiled its two latest matrix products, the EXT-UHD600A-44 and EXT-UHU600A-88 for the AV market. These matrices are designed to support HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 standards, according to a press release.
The products are designed to support all 4K timings and Chroma subsampling formats. They also come with analog and digital audio breakouts to de-embed the audio stream from each HDMI output. This allows isolated audio content to be connected to amplifiers and music distribution systems.
The EXT-UHD600A-44 also comes with Gefen's Logn Range Power feature to eliminate the need for an external power supply. This model can also downscale a 4K signal to HD with its independent scalers.
"There has been and always will be a need for external products that perform the duties of switching, splitting, and extension in the AV distribution business," Jason Fitzgerald, product manager, Gefen said. "Gefen has always maintained a strong heritage in supplying these types of products while integrating the latest trends in connectivity technology. The introduction of these two new matrix products truly complete our 600 MHz line-up by enabling commercial integrators to fully utilize HDMI 2.0a."
