Gefen, a subsidiary of Nortek Inc.’s Technology Solutions Group, first emerged as a player in the computer connectivity arena in 1995 when marketing a line of computer peripheral extenders known as the ex-tend-it Professional Series. The products, which extended KVM (keyboard, video and mouse) peripherals away from the computer, were originally designed to solve the problem of computer noise interfering with studio production. Switchers, which access multiple sources from a single KVM workstation, were also developed together with distribution amplifiers, splitters, converters and cables as the product line naturally evolved.
In the late 1990s, Gefen became an early adopter of the digital interfaces that would soon develop into HDTV (high definition television), providing solutions for both professional and consumer industries. To accommodate the phase between analog and digital worlds, Gefen’s success in the conversion and adaptation of traditionally incompatible video signals added to its reputation as an innovative technology solutions provider.
Gefen continued to remain on the leading edge of new technologies and their applications, and has consistently been the first to market with innovative products that are highly valued in major industries spanning the globe.
Gefen will always offer the finest quality products at the best possible price. Included in that price is a lifetime of free support from a team of outstanding engineers.
