Gefen has introduced its new DisplayPort Extender over Cat-7, for sending audio/video up to 100 feet (30m) in distance from computer to display. According to the company, those working with resolutions up to 1920x1200 can use the same extender with only one Cat-7 cable.
Wall mountable sender and receiver units deliver audio and video from the DisplayPort source over the Cat-7 cabling to the display. Power is required at the sender unit only; the receiver unit receives its power using the Cat-7 cable.
Additional features include 16 different EQ adjustments using a rotating switch on the receiver unit. The receiver’s HPD Auto Calibration switch allows a full calibration of the connected display with no training needed in video technology. A locking power supply on the sender unit improves system stability.
The Gefen DisplayPort Extender over Cat-7 is currently shipping and includes sender unit receiver unit, six-foot local DisplayPort cable and locking power supply.
