Gefen HDMI Tools

Recently Gefen introduced two new devices: HDMI 1.3 1:5 Splitter and 1:10 Distribution Amp. The 1:5 HDMI 1.3 Splitter is a distribution hub that sends the same HDMI signals to up to five HDTV digital displays. The 1:10 HDMI Distribution Amplifier allows to send HD signal to up 10 displays. Those two devices can be a perfect solution for bars, pubs, coffees and other places where one signal should be distributed to the many displays.

The splitter and distribution amp are HDCP-compliant and rack mountable. Both products are available for pre-order on Gefen’s Web site at $499.00 and $749.00 respectively.
