Apple Display Extender
today announced two new extension solutions for Apple's new 20- and 23-inch HD Cinema Displays. The new extension cables bundle three cables together and offer three connectors at each end: DVI, FireWire and USB. The 10- and 15-foot cable-only solutions require no hardware or external power to operate. Gefen's combo cable requires a simple connection to the computer on one end, and to the extended display and peripherals on the other end. Gefen also provides a variety of extender kits that support longer distances--up to hundreds of meters in length. The 10-foot ($100) and 15-foot ($130) extension cables are currently available through Gefen's website.
