Gefen Delivers Plug and Play HDTV Extenders

Computers, Peripherals, Camcorders and HDTV Components Are All Extended Using Category-5 Cabling

Las Vegas, NV - Computer components and video devices can now be connected to their source for power while being operated remotely with one of Gefen's CAT -5 cable extension systems. Three new models are available: one that extends equipment using USB, one that extends VGA displays with audio, and one that extends component video sources with audio -all popular interfaces used in audio/video and computer systems.


The systems work through sender and receiver units that are connected by a single CAT -5 cable -a method that optimizes long -distance performance up to 330 feet from source to display.

The USB Extender supports remote USB 2.0 peripherals up to 150 feet from the computer, transmitting at a fast 480Mbps for instant delivery.

The VGA Audio Extender supports remote analog monitors with RCA stereo audio up to 330 feet from the computer. Video is output in high definition resolutions up to 1920x1200 or 1080p.

The Component Audio Extender supports remote component video sources with both digital audio in S/PDIF and TOSlink, plus RCA stereo audio up to 330 feet over one CAT -5 cable. Remote video is delivered in HD resolutions up to 1080p, and the system enables equalizations for CAT -5 cable skews.

All three systems are powered by an external supply, and may be purchased through a Gefen reseller, located around the world, and listed online.
