The Gefen EXT-CAT5-1600HD extends DVI-D and USB 2.0 peripherals up to 200 feet (60m) from a computer at 1920x1200 using two CAT-5e/CAT6 cables. The unit includes a built-in 4-port USB 2.0 hub located on the Receiver unit, providing complete computer access control at the remote location.

How It Works
Connect the host computer's DVI and USB ports to the Sender unit. Connect the remote display and computer peripherals to the Receiver unit. Two CAT-5 cables (for the DVI and for the USB 2.0) extensions connect the Sender and the Receiver units together. Power up the units, and a crisp picture will appear on the display.

Note: The Gefen CAT5-1600HD is HDCP compliant, enabling the viewing of protected content on the remote extended display. The Gefen CAT5-1600HD supports digital DVI-D only, not analog DVI-A. Sources and connecting cables must be DVI-D compatible. USB 1.1 is also supported.
