KVM peripheral maker
plans to use next month’s
Macworld Conference & Expo
in San Francisco, Calif. to debut two new items in its ex-tend-it line: the ADC Splitter and DVI Splitter. Both peripherals are designed to enable Mac users to use multiple displays with a single computer. The Web site hasn’t been updated with the information on the new gadgets, but a Gefen spokesperson told MacCentral it would be by the end of next week.

The ADC Splitter is a US$299 stackable distribution hub that can drive two digital screens at once, sending the same graphics to each screen. It works with both Apple Display Connector (ADC) equipped screens and screens that support Digital Visual Interface (DVI). It includes a six-foot cable that connects to the computer, and Gefen offers different ADC extension options as well, with distances supported of up to 330 feet.
The DVI Splitter enables a Mac or PC to split a digital video signal up to eight times. The $249 interface is designed with an expansion bus in mind to enable users to support a large number of screens, up to hundreds. This comes in handy in travel, education, information technology, entertainment and retail markets, said the developer.
Both devices are scheduled to begin shipping in January.
