According to the company, eight Blu-ray players, gaming systems, or set-top boxes using the HDMI format can be switched to any eight displays with the 8x8 CrossPoint Matrix for HDMI v1.3. The matrix delivers resolutions up to 1080p full HD almost instantly when selected. Plug-and-play operation and support for the expanded HDMI v1.3 format, including deep color, as well as Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio, make it a useful addition to any environment using consumer equipment.

"This matrix requires no networking and gives direct access to any eight hi-def sources from one or more hi-def displays," said Hagai Gefen, president and CEO, in a statement. "It is a true matrix allowing any source to be viewed on one or all eight displays."

Users can assign any source to any display, according to the company, relaying HD video with HDCP compliance and multichannel audio with no signal delays.

The Gefen 8x8 CrossPoint Matrix for HDMI v1.3 offers local front panel control, IR remote access, and RS-232 compatibility. It also comes with an external power supply, eight HDMI cables, and rack ears for mounting.
