Gefen announces long range extender

Gefen says its Extra Long Range Extender for DVI can cut costs incurred by using lengthy cable runs.

Gefen ELR technology based on HDBaseT standards enables a longer distance extension. The company says the ability to use one Cat5 cable can curb costs on lengthy cabling runs in the installation environment and allow integrators to tap existing in-wall cabling to deliver video.

The extender comes packaged in wall mountable sender and receiver units that can be situated next to the computer source and at the display side. A single Cat5 cable connects the sender and receiver.

Gefen supplies local and pass-through EDID management options. Both sender and receiver units are equipped with locking power supplies designed to maintain a steady connection that will not lose power.
