IOGEAR Expands A/V Product Family to Transform Home Entertainment and Simplify Digital Signage Implementation [08-25-2008]

HDMI Switches and DVI / HDMI Extender Kits enhance the use of multimedia devices

Irvine, CA – August 25, 2008 – IOGEAR today announced four A/V connectivity solutions for the home and office that simplify consumers’ and professionals’ ability to enjoy a variety of modern multimedia devices. Users can now add multiple HDMI inputs to an HDTV and broadcast media an additional 200 feet away from its source. Ideal for professionals in need of simple digital signage solutions, IOGEAR’s two CAT5e/6 MiniExtender Kits, in either HDMI or DVI-D format, allow users to expand the distance between media source equipment and display units. The HDMI CAT5e/6 MiniExtender (GVE300 $279.95) provides an additional 100 feet between a 1080p display unit and media source or an extra 200 feet for 1080i display units. The product sends video and audio in HD quality with a local transmitting unit and remote receiving unit linked with two standard solid Category 5 twisted Ethernet cables. No additional power adapter is required. The DVI CAT5e/6 MiniExtender (GVE200 $69.95) extends a DVI PC source 100 feet away from a single link DVI-D display with resolution of 1920 x 1080 at 60Hz. IOGEAR’s extender kits allow individuals to store valuable equipment in a safe spot and stream to an alternate monitor helping to avoid complications that can arise in a difficult location, such as a construction site. With the ever-growing assortment of A/V entertainment products, such as gaming consoles, DVD players, PCs and cable / satellite boxes, users need an easy way to connect multiple home entertainment products to their TV. The 3-Port HDMI Automatic Switch (GHDMIAS3 $89.95) boasts IOGEAR’s patented HDAS technology, which automatically switches to the active device. The 4-Port HDMI Switch with Remote (GHDMIS4 $89.95) is a user-friendly, affordable product that connects up to four HDMI-enabled devices to an HDTV. The switching port is controlled by the included remote or front-panel push buttons, letting users quickly jump to the desired device. “At IOGEAR, we strive to simplify consumers’ work and home lives in an increasingly digital age by creating tools to reduce clutter and enhance the capabilities of existing products,” said Miranda Su, executive vice president of IOGEAR. “Our switches and extenders allow individuals to use their A/V products more efficiently by eliminating common hassles associated with programming home entertainment devices and broadcasting digital signage.” These products are immediately available at and through major catalog and online resellers, as well as select retail outlets.
