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 1920×1200 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.
