Indianapolis, IN Booth 3725
- (Virtual Press Office
) – Digital connectivity solutions provider Gefen unveils its new GefenTV 4x1 HD Switcher w/Audio Amplifier. This new audio processor provides a central, one-box solution that integrates four hi-def sources using HDMI and outputs audio as 5.1 surround sound with 25 watts per channel amplification. It can also process audio sources using digital (optical, coax) and analog (L/R) audio inputs as 5.1 surround sound for connection to a pre-amp. The GefenTV 4x1 HD Switcher w/Audio Amplifier combines source switching and audio processing in one convenient solution. When one of the four hi-de sources is selected, video is delivered as 1080p full HD with 3DTV pass-through. Multi-channel audio from the HDMI input is delivered either as 5.1 surround sound through standard RCA connectors or directly to speakers using standard binding posts. It works with all HDMI devices including Blu-ray players, Apple TVs, set-top boxes and gaming consoles. If the optical, coax or L/R analog audio input is selected, audio is delivered as either 5.1 surround sound through the RCA connectors or through the binding posts. CD players, MP3 players, laptops and iPods can all be connected through the digital and analog audio ports.
The 4x1 HD Switcher w/Audio Amplifier is perfect for processing signals to an existing amplifier or for connecting directly to surround sound speakers. The mini LCD on the front panel gives status information; front panel buttons offer access to the on-screen display menu, volume and power control. An IR remote and RS-232 port offer additional methods of control including 12v triggers for home automation integration.
