INTRODUCTION
The Gefen 1:2 HDMI Distribution Amplifier is the perfect solution for anyone who
needs to send one source of digital high definition video to multiple displays at the
same time. It supports all HDMI equipment, such as DVD players and satellite set
top boxes and all HDMI displays. In operation, the digital video source is connected
to the distribution amplifier’s one input while two HDMI outputs are available to be
used in part or in full. Once the unit is connected and powered, your source can be
distributed up to two digital displays at the same time.
How It Works
Simply connect your HDMI video source to the 1:2 HDMI Distribution Amplifier’s
input using the supplied HDMI cable. Then connect up to two HDMI displays to the
unit’s two HDMI outputs. Once connected and powered, your source can be seen on
all both displays at the same time.
OPERATION NOTES
READ THESE NOTES BEFORE INSTALLING OR
OPERATING THE 1:2 DISTRIBUTION AMPLIFIER FOR HDMI
• Display information from the display connected to HDMI output port 1 is sent
back to the source. Therefore, all other displays connected to the 1:2
Distribution Amplifier For HDMI must be capable of accepting the timings
and resolutions of the display that is connected to HDMI output port 1. It is
recommended that the display with the lowest native resolution be connected
to HDMI output port 1. This is to ensure that a compatible video signal will be
able to be displayed on all connected monitors.
• HDMI/HDCP compliant
• Compatible with all HDMI and DVI* displays

DIP SWITCH GUIDELINES
DIP SWITCH
EDID GUIDE
Extended display identification data (EDID) is a data structure provided by a
display to describe its capabilities to any source that asks for it. The EDID includes
manufacturer name, product type, timings supported by the display, display size,
luminance data, (for digital displays only) pixel mapping data, supported audio
channels and formats. This information is used by the source to cater its output to
resolutions and audio formats that are supported by the display.
Additional EDID modes are available and configured using a combination of dip
switches 1, 2, and 5. Please refer below for the different EDID modes.
To access the Dip Switches, remove all screws from the bottom and sides of the
Gefen unit. Carefully slide the unit apart. The 8 Bank of Dip Switches are located
on the main PCB. Once adjustments are complete, slide the unit back together and
replace all removed screws.
EDID Mode 0 (Switch 1=OFF Switch2=OFF Switch5=ON)
-EDID is copied from the first HDMI port
EDID Mode 1 (Switch 1=ON Switch2=OFF Switch5=ON)
-Same as Mode 0 and adds basic audio support
EDID Mode 2 (Switch 1=OFF Switch2=ON Switch5=ON)
-Same as Mode 0 and adds full audio support
EDID Mode 3 (Switch 1=ON Switch2=ON Switch5=OFF)
-EDID is generated based on the common video and audio features of all of the
connected devices
EDID Mode 4 (Switch 1=OFF Switch2=ON Switch5=OFF)
-Same as Mode 3 and adds basic audio support
EDID Mode 5 (Switch 1=ON Switch2=OFF Switch5=OFF)
-Same as Mode 3 and adds full audio support
EDID Mode 6 (Switch 1=OFF Switch2=OFF Switch5=OFF) DEFAULT
-EDID is generated based on the common video features of all of the connected
devices and the combined audio features of all of the connected devices
