The Gefen EXT-2DVI-DLKVM-CAT6 2x Dual Link DVIKVM Extender over CAT-6a is a cost-effective solution that allows the extension of keyboard, video and mouse to a remote workstation up to 200 feet (60 meters away). The EXT-2DVI-DLKVM-CAT6 is particularly useful because it is able to extend dual link resolutions beyond the limitations of standard DVI cables. Dual-link resolutions up to 3840 x 2400 are supported using two CAT-6a cables for each display. Single-link resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 can be achieved using one CAT-5e or CAT-6a cable per display. HDCP is supported in both single link and dual link modes. USB 2.0 data rates up to 480 Mbps are supported in addition to backward-compatibility with USB 1.1. The Receiver unit allows the connections of up to four USB devices, providing access to printers, scanners, cameras, external storage media, digital signage, and automated control systems.

How It Works:

Place the EXT-2DVI-DLKVM-CAT6 2x Dual link DVIKVM Extender over CAT-6a Sender unit next to the DVI sources. Use the included DVI cables to connect the DVI sources to the Sender unit. Use the supplied USB cable to connect the USB host (source) device to the USB port on the Sender unit. Connect the Receiver unit to two dual-link DVI displays using DVI cables. Connect up to four USB devices to the Receiver unit. Use five CAT-6a cables, each up to 200 feet (60 meters), to connect the Sender to the Receiver unit. Connect the included locking power supplies to the Sender and Receiver units and plug both power cords into available electrical outlets.
