Gefen Now Shipping New 4K Multi-Format 4×1 Scaler/Switcher

Nortek Security & Control (NSC) today announced that it is now shipping the Gefen 4K Ultra HD Multi-Format 4×1 Scaler with Auto-Switching & HDMI/HDBaseT Outputs (EXT-4K300A-MF-41-HBTLS).

The 4×1 Switcher provides automatic source switching with HDBaseT extension, a split HDMI output for dual display scenarios and multiple control interfaces for management of the product when used as a standalone or part of a larger A/V system. Its HDMI and HDBaseT outputs provide connection to a local display located in-room and to a remote display or projector.

The EXT-4K300A-MF-41-HBTLS has four inputs (HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI and VGA) to accommodate most commonly used presentation sources and automatic-switching to allow hands-off source selection by simply connecting a device.

The new switcher, when used with the optional EXT-UHDA-HBTL-RX HDBaseT Receiver, provides two-way RS232 and Source-to-Display IR extension, facilitating RS232 control of A/V sources placed near the sender unit and sending IR or RS232 automation commands to the remote display or another device placed near the receiver unit. Power-Over-HDBaseT technology provides power from the switcher to the receiver, over the same cable that extends the video signal.

Here are the details.
