Gefen’s 4x4 Component Audio Matrix is a rack mountable matrix that enables a plug-and-play connection between four component video sources and four component video displays. It supports all set-top boxes, digital video recorders, disc players, and video devices equipped with component video connectors.
Because the component format does not transmit audio, Gefen has equipped this switcher with RCA left/right connectors so audio is delivered with video. It delivers high definition resolution up to 1080p. System setup requires a connection of four component video and audio cables to the inputs and four component displays to the outputs. Users assign each source to a display using the IR remote that comes with the system, the front-panel buttons, or the RS232 connection with smart control.
To distribute component video and audio up to 1,000 feet, a Component Audio Extender is available.
