NEW GEFEN DVI EXTENDERS

By

19 January 2015

Two new DVI extenders join Gefen’s growing selection of extension solutions with handy product features and streamlined installation options.

Extra Long Range DVI Extender

The EXT-DVI-1CAT5-ELR is an extra long range extender over a single cat5 and provides a cost-effective solution for longer-range transport of uncompressed DVI using HDBaseT.

It supports resolutions up to 1920×1200 (WUXGA) and extends DVI up to 150m using a single cat5e cable, which is 50m further than previous models. Its operating mode helps preserve power when the product is not in active use, surface-mountable enclosures allow for easy and secure installation and locking power supply connectors ensure uninterrupted performance.

The extender is capable of HDCP and HPD pass-through, and can also be configured via DIP switches for maximum range or bandwidth, low power consumption (auto sleep mode), and always-on operation.

EXT-DVI-1CAT5-ELR: high performance extension of DVI up to 150m over a single cat5, using HDBaseT technology.

Key Features

  • Extends DVI up to 150 meters over one cat5e cable
  • Supports resolutions up to 1080p (Full HD) and 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)
  • EDID management for rapid integration of source and display
  • Enable/disable switches for HPD pass-through
  • Power-save (Green mode) selector switch
  • 150m/100m range selector switch configures the extender for maximum range (150 meters) or maximum bandwidth
  • Locking power supplies
  • Surface-mountable

DVI Extender with Galvanic Isolator

The EXT-DVI-1CAT6-GI is a DVI extender with galvanic isolator that sends DVI video up to 40m using one cat6 cable, or up to 30m using one cat5e, and supports video resolutions up to 1920×1200 (WUXGA).

Gefen’s galvanic isolation design provides up to 5kV of isolation between the source and downstream equipment, decreasing the risk of electric shock or system damage. This is especially important in sensitive applications such as in medical and healthcare-related installations. This new technology was developed to enable the use of copper cables instead of fibre optic cables in applications where electrical isolation is a must and the signal extension range is short, and fortuitously provides integrators with an alternative to use more economical cabling. Typical applications include medical imaging systems where certain components of the system (such as endoscopy or laparoscopy cameras) come in direct contact with the patient and the operator.

Key Features

  • Compliant with Medical Standards EN60601-1 and EN60601-1-2, 3rd Edition
  • Extends DVI up to 40 meters over cat6A
  • Extends DVI up to 30 meters over cat5e
  • Provides up to 5kV galvanic isolation between the source and the downstream equipment
  • Supports resolutions up to 1080p (Full HD) and 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)
  • HDCP pass-through
  • Switchable Deep Colour support
  • HPD pass-through
  • EDID management switch for rapid integration of source and display
  • EQ adjustment 8-position switch for cable skew compensation
  • Secure grounding terminals on both Sender and Receiver units
  • Locking power supply connectors
  • Surface mountable
EXT-DVI-1CAT6-GI: Ideal for extension and isolation of medical imaging devices.
