Gefen Incorporates Fast Switching Technology Into All HDMI 1.3 Products  Print E-mail

It seems like switching between two signals should be instantaneous, but that's not always the case.  In fact, depending on your setup, you might have as much as a ten second wait for your new signal to show up.

Gefen has announced that all of its HDMI 1.3 products now incorporate Fast Switching Technology (FST) which eliminates the wait and makes the changeover nearly instantaneous.  As CEO Hagai Gefen explains, "This new FST was initiated based on our customers’ feedback to speed the switching time between HDMI input sources, and make the overall system more user friendly."

"Though cutting down ten seconds may not seem like a long time," he adds, "it was presenting challenges to installers when switching from component-based connections to HDMI, and now we have the perfect solution."
