Amsterdam, Netherlands – Gefen’s new A/V Cinema Scaler Pro I and II provide two plug and play solutions for theatre operators seeking to expand their offerings. By integrating pre-show advertising and connecting satellite television, computer, video camera and gaming systems to the digital cinema projector, operators can rent the theatre for personal parties, important broadcast events and business meetings to build revenue.

Both the A/V Cinema Scaler Pro I and II come in a rack mounted enclosure that supplies several inputs for today’s most popular audio/video formats. Each one offers robust scaling capabilities and format conversion. High definition video is output in the DVI format with accompanying audio that can be delivered as 7.1 DB25 or channeled through the theatre’s surround sound audio system.
