This product has been replaced by the EXT-AVCONFS
The rack-mountable TV Multi Format Switcher allows you to view a wide variety of analog and digital SD and HD video sources with audio at resolutions up to 1080p -- all on one HDMI-compliant display. Anything from computers, set-top boxes, satellite boxes, security cameras, Blu-ray and DVD players to the next generation of hi-def gaming consoles (including the Xbox 360 and PS3) can share a single HDMI-compliant display. Superior A/V signal quality is insured by the 3D comb filter and 3D noise reduction circuitry. The audio delay feature and de-interlacing feature for 480i sources improves Standard-Definition console gaming.
The TV Multi Format Switcher supports 2 Component, 2 Composite, 2 S-Video, and 1 VGA source -- each with L/R analog audio in up to 2 channels. 3 HDMI sources are also supported with embedded digital audio at up to 7.1 channels. (The number of audio channels present in the HDMI output signal will depend on what kind of audio is input). Any A/V source can be selected for viewing at any time using the included IR remote or the front-panel selector buttons.
How It WorksA/V sources connect to the TV Multi Format Switcher on its inputs. An HDMI-compliant display is connected to the HDMI output. The 5V DC power supply is connected to the TV Multi Format Switcher. The currently selected video source will appear on the output display in vibrant color.
Note: Only A/V source switching (not scaling) is performed with this product. For additional scaling functions, any of our versatile scalers can be easily added at the HDMI output of this unit, such as our Gefen Audio/Video Scaler Pro (EXT-GSCALER-PRON, shown at left).
