DWIN Announces DVI Cable Extender

Uncompressed HD Signals Are Transmitted up to 100 feet

INDIANAPOLIS - September 7, 2004 - DWIN Electronics, Inc. has developed a new DVI cable extender capable of delivering uncompressed high definition video signals up to 100 feet. The new accessory works with DWIN's TransVision™ 3+ high definition video projectors and DWIN's new HD -Series plasmas.


Suggested retail price for the DWIN DVI Cable Extender is $245. When combined with the required DWIN -proprietary DVI cables, the system is competitive with fiber optic -based cable for similar lengths.

The DVI Cable Extender is designed primarily to respond to the needs of custom installers to enable multi -room high definition video systems beyond the reach of conventional DVI cables. Installation is flexible and easy: power is supplied by the DVI cable itself and requires no external power supply.

With DWIN's proprietary 3/4 -inch circular DVI connectors, DVI cables can be easily pulled through standard one -inch conduit. Cable distances of up to 100 -feet are possible using two DWIN 50 -foot DVI -R cables.

The DVI Cable Extender was developed to support DWIN's new DuoVision™ dual -display high definition processor. DuoVision enables two separate high definition video displays to share video gear from one central location in the home. Integrating two DWIN native -rate processor/scalers, the DuoVision controller simplifies installation of multi -room high definition systems and helps consumers avoid the added expense of separate HD video source devices.

Founded in 1985, DWIN Electronics, Inc. specializes in the design and manufacturing of high performance consumer and professional video projectors, digital video processors and displays.
