Gefen To Launch A/V Cinema Scaler Pro I And II

Gefen's new A/V Cinema Scaler Pro I and II are providing two plug and play solutions for theatre operators seeking to expand their offerings.
By integrating pre-show advertising content and connecting satellite television, computer, video camera and gaming systems to the digital cinema projector, operators can rent the theatre for personal parties, important broadcast events and business meetings to build revenue.
Both the Gefen A/V Cinema Scaler Pro I and II come in a rack mounted enclosure that supplies several inputs for today's most popular audio/video formats. Each one offers robust scaling capabilities and format conversion. High definition video is output in the DVI format with accompanying audio that can be delivered directly as 7.1 DB25 or channeled through the theatre's surround sound audio system.
The A/V Cinema Scaler Pro I with Analog DB25 Audio allows the connection of up to five audio/video sources, providing two component video inputs, one VGA input, two DVI inputs and one HDMI input. Audio is input in the HDMI format with digital S/PDIF, TOSlink and analog L/R inputs accompanying all video inputs.
Audio can also be input and output as analog AES DB25 at up to 7.1 channels. The selected video input is converted, if necessary, before being output as high definition digital video in the DVI format, supporting resolutions to 1080p to 2048 (2K). The on-screen and front panel display options guide users through the scaling features while the IR remote allows for easy control. An RS-232 port allows for additional control system connection. The Scaler supports HDCP compliance on the HDMI input.
The A/V Cinema Scaler Pro II with Analog and Digital DB25 Audio also allows the connection of five different audio/video sources, outputting each selected source in the DVI format with 7.1 channels of analog DB25 audio. The main exception is that this unit supports an additional digital audio input in DB25. With active analog and digital DB25 balanced audio outputs at up to 7.1 channels, the Pro II model offers a more enhanced audio option for theatres working with DB25.
Gefen will at Stand 7.B31 at IBC 2009.
