Gefen awarded 5-star recognition in DisplayMate Best Video Hardware Guide

Leading video testing, evaluation and optimisation company, DisplayMate Technologies, recognised digital video solutions provider Gefen as a premium source for add-on digital video solutions with a prestigious 5-star DisplayMate Best Video Hardware Award.
The award came after an extensive test run in which President and CEO, Dr. Raymond Soneira, relied on a series of Gefen solutions to integrate high definition displays to multiple sources across long distances without networking or intricate wiring.
The entire testing system was built using Gefen’s 6x2 HDMI Switcher, one 2:8 and two 4:1 HDMI Distribution Amplifiers, a HDTV CAT5 Extender with two shielded 75-foot CAT-5 cables, a DVI Detective and half a dozen long HDMI to DVI cables, with the entire configuration connecting six HD sources to six HDTV displays.
“To get identical digital signals to all of the HD displays simultaneously was key to the entire system,” said Soneira. “With the Gefen distribution amplifiers, we were able to send uncompressed, high definition digital signals up to 1080p to all six displays without any problems or compatibility issues, even over long runs of CAT-5 cabling in the lab.”
For a more in-depth comparison, Soneira utilised Gefen’s 6x2 HDMI Switcher, capable of connecting up to six HDMI or DVI sources and outputting two audio/video signals for each source, together with the distribution amplifiers to drive signals simultaneously.
“With the Gefen switcher/distribution amp connections, we were able to check several sources of video on displays side-by-side; it provided a plug-and-play method of easy integration and top notch performance,” he said.
