GEFEN HDMI over IP with RS-232 and Bi-Directional IR
The HD over IP w/ RS-232 and 2-way IR extends HDMI, RS-232, and bi-directional IR over a Gigabit Local Area Network. Resolutions up to 1080p Full HD and 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA), HDCP, Deep Color, 7.1 channel High Bit Rate digital audio, and Lip-Sync pass-through are supported. The Sender and Receiver units can be automatically or manually configured to unique IP addresses to allow the connection of multiple Senders and Receivers to the same network. Multiple Receiver units can simultaneously connect to any Sender unit within the network including the Gefen KVM over LAN products with HDMI, DVI, or VGA video, to create a virtual crosspoint matrix of just over 65,000 Sender and Receiver units total, depending on the network bandwidth and number of ports on the network switch (see Notes 1 and 2).
IR control can be extended from Sender to Receiver and from Receiver to Sender, allowing the control of source units and displays remotely. The IR input ports on Sender and Receiver units can accommodate both the Gefen powered IR extender EXT-RMT-EXTIRN and electrical IR from automation control devices. RS-232 serial control can also be extended between each Sender and Receiver unit. The built-in web server interface makes control, set-up, and configuration simple and intuitive. When using multiple Senders and Receivers as a «Virtual Matrix», you can connect to any of the Senders within the network by accessing the web interface of each Receiver unit via a web browser on a mobile device or computer, or by using the Gefen KVM/Video over IP Keyboard Switching Controller software (available for download at www.gefen.com). The Gefen HD over IP extender is the perfect solution for large scale remote HD content access and digital signage applications.
