Gefen continues to expand its HDMI ToolBox gadget line with a trio of splitters, capable of getting your 4K content to multiple displays. Available in 1:2, 1:4, and 1:8 configurations, these splitters take your signal and send it to two, four, or eight displays, respectively. A locking power supply input prevents accidental power loss. HDMI connections are made via standard, full size HDMI connectors.
The splitters are built into attractive metal enclosures that are available in white or black. The enclosures also have wall mounting tabs, making it easy to locate them near or behind a display, or inside a rack. Each also includes Gefen’s Fast Switching Technology (FST), which vastly improves the HDCP authentication process. FST eliminates any video loss when powering on/off displays in the same distributed system. HDCP and 3DTV pass-through are fully supported. Digital audio formats including Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS-HD Master Audio are passed through along with video.
It’s worth noting that the splitters are also backwards compatible, so they fit nicely into a current 1080p system, making these ideal wherever a splitter is needed, especially if future-proofing is important to you.
Gefen’s 4K HDMI splitters are available for pre-order now at the following MSRPs:
GTB-HD4K2K-148 (White or Black): $499
