Gefen, from Nortek Security & Control (NSC), today announced that it is now shipping its EXT-UHD-LANS-TX, EXT-UHD-LANS-RX, EXT-UHDKA-LANS-TX and EXT-UHDKA-LANS-RX models, all part of the new Gen 2.0 AV Over IP product line. The introduction builds on the Gefen promise to provide systems integrators with scalable, high performance routing and distribution solutions that set new standards for performance and reliability.
"Our new Gen 2.0 AV over IP products address the ever-growing application-specific needs of systems integrators” Gefen Product Manager Jason Fitzgerald said today. “From 4K Ultra HD with HDR support, built-in scalers, and video-wall control, to independent USB, RS-232, audio routing and backward-compatibility with our first generation products, these new solutions offer an expanded array of important new features, performance and functionality. Our mission is to make sure that integrators have the right product for every AV over IP job they deliver and we are tailoring many new product solutions to meet the specific needs of each installation.”
The new EXT-UHDKA-LANS-TX (sender) and EXT-UHDKA-LANS-RX (receiver) solutions enhance AV extension and management for workstation environments where video and USB connectivity is required. In addition to basic KVM functionality, the new KM Emulation feature facilitates real-time simultaneous Keyboard and Mouse control of each source from all connected workstations, eliminating the inherent limitations of earlier systems. “Power-over-Ethernet allows the Sender and Receiver units to be powered through a standard PoE-enabled IP network switch, without the need for external power supplies,” added Fitzgerald. When used in conjunction with the EXT-CU-LAN Matrix Controller, system configuration is automated and very quick. “Its Mass-Firmware-Update (MFU) feature keeps the entire system up-to-date without the need to access and upgrade each unit separately.”
