Gefen Releases Four New Ways to Extend DVI over Fiber

Several new fiber optic-based extenders offer improved performance and longer distances.

CHATSWORTH, CA - Digital connectivity solutions provider Gefen today announced the shipping of four new extenders for DVI using fiber optic cables. Three employ small, modular sender and receiver units that streamline installations with a lightweight and efficient solution. Another uses the traditional rack mount sender and receiver unit for KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) extension. Fiber optic cable is ideal for applications in which electromagnetic interference (EMI) is an issue or when multiple extenders are used in tight spaces.

High resolution video is supported up to 1920x1200. Virtual EDID programming ensures a constant sync of the video source to the display. This DVI module is interchangeable with HDMI, with HDCP-compliance.

Two small sender and receiver modules offer a simple, straightforward method of connecting DVI directly at the source and display. High resolution (1920x1200) video is extended using a single-mode fiber optic cable up to 3280 feet (100m) or using a multi-mode fiber optic cable up to 1640 feet (500m). The die-cast modules provide a more robust solution than existing products supporting the same distance.
