Gefen Demonstrates Three New Ways to Extend DVI Throughout the Studio
(Virtual Press Office
) -- Booth #819, San Francisco CA - Digital connectivity solutions provider Gefen provides three solutions that extend single or dual link DVI throughout the studio. All products use a sender and receiver system with built-in
EDID management to guarantee long distance signal integrity, and are designed for post-production studios working with high resolution computer systems.
The 2x Dual Link DVI Extender over CAT-6 extends two dual link DVI displays up to 196 feet (60m) from their source using four CAT-6 cables. Video resolutions up to 4k (3840x2400) are supported for flawless
video at the extended location. Equalizing adjustments on the receiver unit eliminate potential skews when using CAT-6 cables, and locking power supplies stabilize performance.
The DVI FM-1000 extends one DVI display up to 3280 feet (1km) from its source using a single fiber optic cable. It uses modular-type sender and receiver units that install in seconds. High resolutions up to 1920x1200 are delivered using one fiber optic cable terminated in SC, replacing a previous model that used two cables to reach the same distance. Fiber optic cabling supplies a high bandwidth method of signal extension that also eliminates EMI (electromagnetic interference).
The DVI-3600 extends one DVI display along with USB 2.0 peripherals, RS-232 and analog audio up to 6600 feet (2000m) using a single mode fiber optic cable. USB peripherals can be operated in either local or remote locations using a front panel switch on the sender unit. High resolutions up to 1920x1200 are supported.
“All of these new extenders for DVI offer some options for studios with a need to distribute high resolution video to different locations for remote work stations or monitoring,” explained Hagai Gefen, president and CEO, Gefen. “Audio pros can now reach both long and shorter distances with either CAT-6 or fiber optic cabling and still maintain 100% signal integrity.”
