IBC 2011: Gefen Products Preview

2011 IBC Show Preview
Stand 7.B30

The new GefenPRO 3GSDI to 3GSDI Scaler, 3GSDI Fiber Optics Extender and 16x 3GSDI Rack Tray all make their first appearance at IBC. They offer a plug-and-play methodology with support for high-definition resolutions up to 1080p full HD.

GefenPRO 3GSDI to 3GSDI Scaler

This new scaler will automatically adjust incoming video to the maximum resolution supported on the connected display using all SDI formats including SD, HD and 3G SDI. This is important when multiple displays do not support the same native resolution in a system. If two displays are connected with 3GSDI capability, and a third is connected with HDSDI  capability, the GefenPRO 3GSDI to 3GSDI Scaler will allow the HDSDI display to show video in its native resolution, while the other displays show 1080p full HD in the 3GSDI format. This scaler can also be manually scaled to all SDI formats up to 1080p full HD.

GefenPRO 3GSDI Fiber Optic Extender Short Range

This short-range extender offers another option for integrators that need to extend 3G SDI up to 100 meters (330 feet). It uses uses small, dongle-type sender and receiver units to extend a source using 3GSDI to its display over one single-mode fiber optic cable terminated in ST connectors.


GefenPRO 16X 3GSDI Rack Tray

This companion product to the GefenPRO 16×16 3GSDI Matrix works in concert with Gefen’s 3GSDI fiber optic extenders to centralize all audio/video equipment. It is a flexible accessory that can hold up to 16 3GSDI fiber optic extender sender units in a single rack space, giving installers an easy way to access all audio/video equipment in the rack. The modular tray can be scaled to fit any combination of Gefen’s fiber optics extenders, up to a total of 16, using removable mounting brackets. Composed of die-cast metal, this rack tray offers an open top design for easy access to insert or remove individual sender units. Cable brackets on the rear of the tray streamline cables out the back in an orderly fashion. Dual power supplies strengthen performance.
