Gefen has debuted two new matrix products that fully support the latest HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 standards. The EXT-UHD600A-44 and EXT-UHD600A-88 include multiple new features for commercial integrators such as analogue and digital audio breakouts that de-multiplex the audio stream from each HDMI output, allowing the isolated audio content to be connected to external amplifiers and music distribution systems. Thanks to independent scalers on each output, the EXT-UHD600A-44 has the ability to downscale a 4K signal to HD on two of its outputs, while the remaining two outputs can upscale a HD signal to 4K. Both new matrix products include a Professional API feature that provides previously unattainable data to open the door for exciting interactions between control/monitoring systems and Gefen products.
Gefen also introduced the EXT-DP-4K600-1SC extender that enables integrators to place 4K 600 MHz DisplayPort 1.2 sources and displays up to 660 feet apart with full optical isolation. The EXT-DP-4K600-1SC extends HDCP 2.2, HDCP 1.4, and DPCP compliant DisplayPort 600 MHz 4K audio/video over fibre. WQUXGA (3840 x 2400), 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160), and 4K Cinema – DCI (4096 x 2160), up to 60 Hz frame rate and 4:4:4 Chroma sub-sampling are supported. The AV signal can be extended up to 200 meters, or 660 feet, over a single strand of SC-terminated 50/125 µm OM3 or better multi-mode fibre-optic cable.
