Two new 4K Ultra HD Video over IP products are being introduced to the European market by Gefen at ISE 2017. The new sender and receiver KVM units (EXT-UHDV-KA-LANS-TX and EXT-UHDV-KA-LANS-RX) join the existing family of Gefen’s Video over IP products and add 4K support, built-in scaler, videowall controller, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), and digital/analogue audio break-out.
“These new Video over IP solutions build on our tradition of providing high performance, scalable, expandable, and secure AV routing and distribution over a standard 1 Gig Local Area Network,” said Gefen product manager Jason Fitzgerald. “Compatibility with our existing Video over IP 1080p senders and receivers – and quick system set-up and control through the Gefen EXT-CU-LAN Matrix Controller – allow these new products to fully address the needs of commercial, light commercial, and pro-AV applications.”
The new Gefen models feature HDMI and VGA inputs and outputs, and can support DVI when using Gefen HDMI-to-DVI cables. They 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. The sender also features a VGA output for local monitoring of the input.
The VGA input and output support VESA resolutions up to 1920×1200 at 60Hz (WUXGA). RS-232 and 2-way IR routing between the sender and receiver units is possible, allowing the transfer of IR commands and RS-232 communications among all sources and displays.
