New Digital Video Extenders from Gefen Offer Options for Short- And Long-Range Extension

NAB Booth SL 3824

Las Vegas, NV – (Virtual Press Office) -- Professionals requiring high resolution video extension in the workspace now have some new options, thanks to Gefen. The digital connectivity solutions provider will present several new extenders supporting today's most popular interfaces.

The DVI ELR (Extra Long Range) Lite extender is more cost-effective for slightly shorter-range extensions. It delivers DVI up to 230 feet (70m) using one CAT-5 cable. It also extends power over the same cable using Gefen POL (Power Over Line) technology, which releases the receiver from requiring a power supply.

The DisplayPort KVM Extender over CAT-7 extender delivers dual link DVI video with two USB 2.0 peripherals up to 100 feet (30m) using three CAT-7 cables. It supports resolutions up to 2560x1600 and is ideal for studios and editing bays.

The DisplayPort EDID Detective Plus is a handy little tool that prevents signal loss when extending DisplayPort video. Displays use EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) to communicate key information to the video source. If lost during transit, video may appear degraded or fail completely. The DisplayPort EDID Detective Plus preserves video quality by maintaining the correct EDID transmissions to the source.

The HDMI Booster w/EDID extends HDMI up to 165 feet (50m) using standard copper cabling. It supports resolutions up to 4k and comes with a built-in EDID Detective. Displays use EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) to communicate key information to the video source. If lost or delayed, faulty EDID can result in image degradation or a complete loss of video. To solve this problem, the Booster ensures the correct EDID information is provided to the source, even when extended away from the display.
