Extend dual-link DVI
The DVI HD uses 4 strand fiber optic cables to extend Dual Link DVI display up to 6,560 feet away from your source. Dual link DVI describes the use of all 24 pins of the DVI (Digital Visual Interface) connector to achieve super high resolutions. Featuring Virtual DDC, the DVI HD can run without the use of a CAT5 cable.
How It Works
The DVI HD Sender unit sits next to your computer. Cables supplied with the DVI HD system connect the DVI source to the DVI HD Sender unit. The DVI HD Receiver unit sits next to your Dual Link DVI display and plugs into the DVI display's dual-link DVI port. An optional CAT-5 cable and multi-mode 4 strand LC fiber optic cable (4-strand) connects the sender and the receiver units to each other.
Note: Single-mode fiber extensions can travel as far as 2km (6560 feet) using virtual EDID.
Multi-mode fiber extensions can travel as far as 500m (1640 feet)using virtual EDID.
For Direct DDC (DDC2B) mode, an additional CAT5 cable extension of up to 330 feet (100 m) is required. (The CAT5 cable is used for direct DDC2B, Hotplug and DC power.) This limits overall extension to 330 feet.
DVI resolutions can be up to 1920x1200 (single-link) and 2560x1600 (dual-link).
