Gefen has released its DVI Extra Long Range (ELR) Extender, which allows a single CAT-5 cable to deliver 1920×1200 DVI resolutions up to 330 feet.
Gefen’s DVI Extra Long Range (ELR) Extender.
Gefen’s ELR technology, based on HDBaseT standards, enables integrators to tap existing in-wall cabling to deliver video.
This streamlined extender comes packaged in wall mountable sender and receiver units that can be mounted next to the computer source and at the display side. A single CAT-5 cable connects the sender and receiver, offering instant delivery of DVI with no latency, delays or interruptions, according to the company.
Gefen supplies local and pass-through EDID management options to ensure a constant signal delivery from computer to display, regardless of the distance the signal must travel. Both sender and receiver units are equipped with locking power supplies designed to maintain a steady connection that will not lose power.
