Gefen Announces Availability of 1:5 HDMI v1.3 Splitter for Simultaneous HDTV

CHATSWORTH, CA - Connectivity solutions provider Gefen today announced the availability of its 1:5 Splitter for HDMI v1.3. This high performance distribution solution accepts one HDMI signal from Blu-ray players, DVD players, set-top boxes, digital video recorders and game systems, and delivers the same audio and video to five HDMI displays and projectors at the same time. Greater signal distributions can be achieved when cascading two or more Splitters together.

With support for the full scope of the HDMI v1.3 format, this Gefen Splitter passes through HDCP-compliant video in resolutions up to 1080p full HD with deep colors. Multi-channel audio is delivered alongside in Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio formats with lip-sync for demanding applications such as games.

Installation is plug and play easy, requiring a source connection to the Splitter's HDMI input using the six-foot HDMI cable that comes in the package. Five flat panel displays and projectors connect directly to the Splitter's five HDMI outputs.

CEC pass-through compliance, simple installation and support for the expanded HDMI v1.3 format make this new Splitter from Gefen a valuable addition to any digital signage, entertainment, staging or corporate installation. Gefen also offers a 1:2 HDMI v1.3 Splitter for smaller home theater and presentation applications.

The 1:5 Splitter for HDMI v1.3 comes with Gefen's standard two-year warranty for a guaranteed performance. Longer warranty plans can be purchased for a minimal fee.
