Gefen Now Shipping New Award-Winning 4K Video Over IP Solution
Building on its commitment to provide systems integrators with flexible, high performance solutions for distributing Ultra High Definition AV, Gefen from Core Brands today announced that it is now shipping its two new award-winning 4K Ultra HD Video Over IP products. The Sender and Receiver KVM units (the EXT-UHDV-KA-LANS-TX and EXT-UHDV-KA-LANS-RX) join the existing Gefen Video Over IP products and add 4K support, a built-in scaler, videowall capability, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), and digital/analog audio break-out.
“These award-winning Video over IP products build on our tradition of providing high performance, scalable, expandable, and secure AV routing and distribution over a standard 1 Gig Local Area Network,” Gefen Product Manager Jason Fitzgerald explained. “Combined with our existing Video over IP 1080p senders and receivers – and quick system set-up and control through the Gefen EXT-CU-LAN Matrix Controller – these new products fully address the needs of commercial, light commercial, and ProAV applications.”
Striking the perfect balance between performance and cost, Gefen’s next generation Video Over IP products can transmit 4K video content up to 3840 x 2160 at 60 Hz and 4:2:0 Chroma subsampling. This new pair utilizes an effective and time-tested compression codec to ensure that the most popular formats for today’s 4K sources are supported, while also retaining the ability of Gefen’s current generation to exist on the most commonly deployed Gigabit network infrastructures. Both products support HDMI input resolutions up to 4K 60Hz 4:2:0 and output resolutions up to 4K 30Hz 4:4:4, HDCP 2.2 and 1.4, and 7.1 channels of HBR (High Bit Rate) lossless and LPCM digital audio up to 330 feet.
