Gefen expands Gen 2.0 AV over IP product line
Gefen is shipping EXT-UHD-LANS-TX, EXT-UHD-LANS-RX, EXT-UHDKA-LANS-TX and EXT-UHDKA-LANS-RX models from its Gen 2.0 AV over IP product line.
The EXT-UHDKA-LANS-TX (sender) and EXT-UHDKA-LANS-RX (receiver) products include basic KVM functionality and a KM Emulation feature that provides real-time simultaneous keyboard and mouse control of each source from all connected workstations.
Gefen’s receivers feature a built-in scaler. A videowall controller accommodates screen configurations up to 16x16. The EXT-UHDKA-LANS-RX’s integrated USB hub with two USB 2.0 and two USB 1.1 ports accommodates touch panels, keyboard and mouse and a variety of supported devices. This feature, along with analogue audio inputs and outputs, make the products suitable for use in collaborative and interactive installations. A built in 2-port Gigabit switch on each Receiver allows the daisy-chaining of additional receivers or other IP-enabled devices. In applications, such as digital signage, where content is often replicated on multiple displays throughout the installation, the ability to cascade the receivers removes the requirement for each cable to be run directly to the main network switch.
EXT-UHD-LANS-TX (sender) and EXT-UHD-LANS-RX (receiver) support HDMI and control (RS-232 and IR) and are suited to installations that only require HDMI and control connectivity.
The products are capable of 4K 60 Hz 4:2:0 maximum input resolution, and maximum output resolution of 4K 30 Hz 4:4:4. When used with Gefen DVI-to-HDMI cables, they support the use of single-link DVI sources and displays up to 1080p full HD and 1920x1200 (WUXGA). Each cable run from a sender to a receiver or from a sender or receiver to the network switch and can be up to 100 meters. The sender and receiver can be used as extenders in a one-to-one system, or as nodes in a virtual matrix environment, supporting up to 39,900 Senders and a combination of just over 65,000 senders and receivers.
