This Gefen 4K versatile display switcher and scaler combines up to 5 display inputs, to simultaneous HDMI and HD-BaseT outputs. The split HDMI and HDBaseT™ outputs feature a scaler, configurable to 3840 x 2160, 30 Hz, 4:4:4. They feed a local and a remote display simultaneously, adding flexibility in larger presentation environments.

Switching between inputs can be Automaticmanually from the front panel button interface,or remotely controlled using Gefen’s implementation of enhanced HD-BaseT technology, RS-232 and IR. 

Gefen’s Advanced EDID manager maintains device and display information for greater reliability, ensuring more time is spent presenting and enjoying content. 

Industry-standard PowerOver-HDBaseT™ (POH) technology provides power from the Switcher to the Receiver, over the same cable that extends the AV signal. The Switcher features an integrated IR Sensor on its front panel as well as an electrical IR input. If the switcher is mounted in a location where its IR sensor is not within line of sight, a Gefen EXT-RMT-EXTIRN IR Extender Module or a third-party controller with electrical IR output can be connected to the IR input on its back panel.
