Extron Electronics has announced the availability of its new DVI 201xi Tx Twisted Pair Extender. The product enables DVI or HDMI signals to be carried over distances significantly greater than with standard DVI cables. It works together with an Extron DVI 201 or DVI 201 A D Twisted Pair receiver and two Cat5 cables to send single link DVI or HDMI signals over 60m.

The unit offers several features including EDID minder, which automatically manages EDID communication between the input source and display as well automatic input equalisation all in a half-1U rack chassis. The device also supports IR or RS-232 from third party control systems can also be transmitted over the same cabling as the DVI signals.
