The GefenPRO GEF-DVI-848DL-PB is an 8x8 DVI Dual Link Matrix with Push Button Controls provides a professional-grade solution to route up to eight DVI sources to any eight DVI displays. Dual Link resolutions up to 3840x2400 are supported. The front panel display shows the current routing status and the front panel push buttons are used to manage local source routing. Four methods are available for controlling the GefenPRO 8x8 DVI Dual Link Matrix: front panel push buttons, IR remote, RS-232 interface, or using IP control with the built-in Web interface.

How It Works
Connect up to eight DVI source devices to the GefenPRO 8x8 DVI Dual Link Matrix with Push Button Controls using the supplied DVI cables. Connect up to eight monitors to the DVI outputs. Plug in the power cord and apply power to the Matrix. The DVI sources will be routed according to the current routing selection.

Note: The GefenPRO 8x8 DVI Dual Link Matrix with Push Button Controls only supports digital DVI (DVI-D).
