Long Description

Since its inception as Gefen Systems in 1995, Gefen has enhanced the computer connectivity and professional audio/video markets by developing computer peripheral extension solutions knows as the ex-tend-it Professional Series. By extending KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) accessories away from the CPU, professionals could work in complete silence, ideal for editing audio/video content. Though originally designed for application in post-production studios where computer noise interfered with production, the extenders were useful in many other industries including presentations, digital signage, broadcast and others. The Gefen ex-tend-it Professional Series grew to encompass switchers, which access multiple sources from a single workstation, splitters, converters and cables as the product line evolved.
In the late 90s, Gefen embraced and promoted the development of digital interfaces that would evolve into HDTV solutions for both professional and consumer industries. Gefen was at the forefront of the digital video and HDTV (high definition television) evolution, providing solutions that split, distribute, extend and convert HDTV signals for maximizing any digital video environment, regardless of scope. To accommodate this time in-between analog and digital worlds, Gefen still provides several conversion solutions that easily integrate traditionally incompatible audio/video formats to lengthen the lifespan of current audio/video systems.
Gefen continues to remain on the leading edge of new technology developments, and is consistently the first-to-market with innovative products that are highly valued in most major industries spanning the globe.
