Gefen extends DisplayPort with Booster

Gefen has bolstered its DisplayPort range with a booster that sends signals beyond the specified 15m distance, up to 45m.

DisplayPort Booster can be used to extend a personal computer to a better workspace or mount a professional display on the wall that’s far from the computer source using copper cable.

DisplayPort Booster, which measures approximately 2x2 inches, sits between the long copper cable and the display, boosting the signal to its final destination at resolutions up to 1920x1200. 

For higher resolutions up to 2560x1600, the DisplayPort Booster can double the specified distance of DisplayPort up to 30m. 

In most cases, the Booster will not require power to operate, drawing its power from the source and when it cannot is uses its own 5v power supply. 

HDCP compliance and EDID information are also transmitted and DisplayPort Booster is compatible with all previous DisplayPort versions.
