The Gefen EXT-DVI-2CAT6DL is a DVI Dual Link over 2CAT6 Extenders. It extends Dual Link DVI and RS-232 over two CAT-6 cables.

The DVI Dual Link over 2CAT6 extends any DVI dual link source, to a display up to 200 feet (60 meters) away at resolutions to 2560x1600 using two CAT-6 cables. Extending dual link resolutions over standard DVI cables have a limitation of 15 feet. Exceeding this distance requires additional repeaters and/or boosters. The DVI Dual Link over 2CAT6 Extender provides an easy to install solution, using CAT-6 cables.

How It Works
Place the DVI Dual Link over 2CAT6 Extender Sender Unit next to the computer source. Use the included DVI cable to connect the computer to the Sender Unit. Connect the Receiver Unit to the display with a DVI dual link cable. Use two CAT-6 cables, up to 200 feet (60 meters), to connect the Sender Unit to the Receiver Unit. Connect the included locking power supplies to the Sender Unit and Receiver Unit, and then connect both power cables to available electrical outlets.

Note: This product supports HDCP pass-through only when using single link resolutions.
