The Gefen EXT-DVI-142SL is a 1:2 DVI SL Splitter which allows computers with DVI output to be connected to two or more DVI displays at the same time.  This DVI Splitter is a flexible distribution hub that can accommodate multiple displays when two or more 1:2 DVI SL Splitter are connected together to create a greater distribution.

How this Gefen DVI Splitter works:

The 1:2 DVI SL Splitter is connected with a DVI cable from the DVI source to the 1:2 DVI SL Splitter input. There are two DVI outputs. DVI output 1 is the primary connection and is used for the main display. DVI output 2 follows the main display.

Note: Only output #1 of the 1:2 DVI SL Splitter is HDCP pass-through. A connected display that cannot show the same video resolution(s) as the Primary Display connected to Output #1 may fail to show a picture. Secondary displays follow the Primary by sharing the resolution and capability information (EDID) obtained from the Primary Display.

Please use The HDMI Splitter if you require two HDCP compliant outputs.
