GEFEN 4K VIDEO-OVER-IP KVM SENDER/RECEIVER UNITS
Gefen has introduced two 4K ultra HD video over IP products to the Australian AV market. Key features of the new sender and receiver units include a built-in scaler, digital/analogue audio breakout, videowall capability, PoE for simplified installation, cable run of up to 100m, built-in gigabit switch on receiver for daisy chain functionality, both sender and receiver units can be used a KVM extenders in a one-to-one or as nodes in a virtual matrix environment, and the ability to surface, shelf, or rack mount with the additional rack tray (EXT-RACK-1U-GRY) that’s sold separately.
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 100m.
Additionally, both the sender and receiver units support the simultaneous connection of a VGA and HDMI device. The sender acts as a switcher, allowing the user to select either the analogue VGA input or digital HDMI input as a source for the video over IP network. A local VGA output is also available to monitor the selected signal. On the receiver, the VGA and HDMI outputs are both active and essentially function as a video splitter, providing analogue and digital outputs for nearly any display present. The VGA input and output support VESA resolutions up to 1920×1200 at 60Hz (WUXGA). This product also provides RS-232 and two-way IR routing between the sender and the receiver units, allowing the transfer of IR commands and RS-232 communications among all sources and the displays.
Signal routing managed internally in the device, improving network security and allows configuration without IT administrative access. Additional senders and receivers can be easily added at any time without replacing existing hardware, cabling or configuration.
The sender and receiver units are compatible with the existing video over IP 1080p senders and receivers with a quick system set-up and control through the Gefen EXT-CU-LAN matrix controller.
