Gefen fiber DVI extender

Gefen has announced the availability of its new DVI-1500D DVI extender system, designed to offer a DVI cable extension of over 500 meters without signal loss or delay. Leveraging both sender and receiver units connected to the data source and display location, the solution connects via 4-Link LC-LC multimode fibre cable and can deliver hi-def video at full 1080p or 1920x1200, for up to 500 meters. According to the company, HDCP-compliant video also may be extended through the system using a CAT-5 cable -- up to a distance of 100 meters for DDC transmission.

Gefen touts the DVI extender system as "ideal for digital signage applications" and "capable of transmitting hi-def video with zero signal loss or delay". Should audio delivery also be required, Gefen notes that a 100 meter CAT-5e-based S/PDIF and TOSlink Digital Audio Extender is also available.

The DVI-1500D DVI extender is shipping immediately with a price of $600. Gefen's Digital Audio Extender costs $150 and is also immediately availability.
