Part of the Global Connect Family of Products
Denver, CO and Jacksonville, OR, USA – (September 11, 2019) – (CEDIA Expo Booth 1223) Global Caché, the leading independent manufacturer of IP, WiFi, and HTTP enabling connectivity products for the control and automation market, announced today they are shipping Global Connect models GC3/NE/HM and GC4/NS/HM. Both models feature a networked connected HDMI 3:1 switch which enables the digital control of three HDMI inputs to one output. The GC4 model includes PoE (Power over Ethernet) connectivity.
Global Caché’s products connect any IR, serial, and contact closure device to a WiFi and/or IP network so it can be controlled, automated, and maintained by network-based software. The company offers other connectivity products and capabilities, including a networked HDMI switch, sensor input, IR learning, HTTP communication, and the award-winning Control Tower IR database, available for free in the cloud (www.globalcache.com/controltower).
“We‘re excited about the Global Connect HDMI switch, which comes as a Global Connect module within a Global Connect I/O unit or as a standalone solution with or without PoE,” said Rusty Keller, Global Caché’s Director of Marketing. “Taking multiple sources, such as Xbox, Roku, cable boxes, etc., and sending those sources on one HDMI cable to your TV or conference room display is pretty handy, especially when you can control the switch via networked software. HDMI 2.0 is 4K compatible, is hassle free with software control, and saves on wear and tear to your gear because you don‘t have to manually plug and unplug your equipment.”
