Gefen’s new GefenTV Mini 1:8 Splitter for HDMI v1.3 has been designed with a smaller foot print enclosure to streamline installations for easy wiring placement.
“The Mini 1:8 Splitter for HDMI v1.3 marks a departure from the standard rack or desktop design,” Gefen Inc. president and CEO, Hagai Gefen, said. “This model is designed to be mounted on any 2×3, 2×4 stud on a back wall. Its small size and secure power allows customers to create clean installs without spending a lot of money.”
The device delivers high-definition video and multichannel audio from one Blu-ray player, set-top box, PS3, or XBox game console, or any single device using HDMI connectivity to eight displays and/or projectors at the same time.
Support for HDMI v1.3, including lip sync, deep color, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS Master Audio, make it suited for many applications including digital signage, rental, and staging, or any audio-video system using HDMI v1.3 with 1080p full HD resolution.
The Mini 1:8 Splitter allows users to select either two-channel or multi-channel 7.1 audio. A switch for internal or external EDID ensures any selectable signal transmission is delivered to all eight displays at all times.
It also comes with a locking power supply and one HDMI locking cable, whose locking capability adds robustness to the installation.
