Gefen DVI DL CAT-6 Extender
Gefen announced the release of its new extender for professional computer systems using dual-link DVI graphics. The DVI DL CAT-6 Extender offers a plug-and-play method of signal extension that guarantees a lossless video transmission with zero signal dropouts, according to company officials.
Gefen's next-generation extender delivers uncompressed high-resolution video to any remote display up to 200 feet away over two industry-standard Cat-6 cables. Gefen said this is a substantial advantage over previous solutions, which required an add-on booster using more expensive cabling.
Along with high-resolution video, RS-232 is also extended to the remote location, offering a convenient method of long-distance control. Local and pass-through EDID options ensure a constant signal delivery. Video is supported up to 2560x1600 using two Cat-6 cables. Gefen recommends using shielded Cat-6a cables for the best performance.
Installation of the DVI DL CAT6 Extender requires the sender unit to be connected to the computer and the receiver unit to be connected to the remote display. Sender and receiver units are then linked by the two cables.
When sending single-link 1920x1200 resolution video, the DVI DL CAT6 Extender is fully HDCP pass-through compliant, expanding its usefulness in professional, presentation, and digital signage applications.
The DVI DL CAT6 Extender comes enclosed in small units that include locking power supplies to eliminate disconnects.
