Professionals working with high resolution video graphics up to 2560x1600 have a way to extend their display from the computer using two CAT-7 cables. Gefen’s new DisplayPort Extender over CAT-7 sends audio/video up to 100 feet (30m) in distance from computer to display.
Those working with resolutions up to 1920x1200 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. It costs US$799; for more info go to www.gefen.com .
