Adder X-DVIPRO-MS2 Features
High-definition Full DVI Video
The ADDERLink X-DVI PRO-MS extender is designed to deliver two single link DVI digital video resolutions up to 165 MPixels per second. 165MPixels per second is the maximum data rate available on single link DVI connections, and is achieved without the need to compress data in any way. Resolutions supported by single link DVI range from 640 x 480 @ 60 Hz (25 MPixels/s) through to 3840 x 2400 @ 17Hz (164 MPixels/s).
Transparent USB 2.0 Hub (4-Port)
Delivers bidirectional USB 2.0 (low speed/full speed) data allowing you to extend any USB device up to 50 meters (164ft) over the same CATx cables. This makes the X-DVI PRO MS2 perfect for distributed workstations where you want to reduce environmental concerns such as heat and noise. A typical example of this would be post production suites. By centralising your workstations, you can also extend operational life-span by ensuring optimal temperature control, and minimal physical disturbance.
HDMI 1.3a Operation
By using VSCD11 HDMI to DVI converter cables, the ADDERLink X-DVI PRO-MS can support HDMI Video and Audio up to the 165MHz clock rate (1920 x1080 @60Hz 24bit color). 8 channels of HDMI audio is supported with sample sizes of 16, 20 or 24 bit at 32KHz, 44.1kHz, 48kHz, 88.2kHz, 96kHz, 176.4kHz, or 192kHz (simultaneously with the jack audio). It does not support HDCP or CEC control.
Bidirectional CD-quality audio extension
Two audio extention ports (stereo channel 16 bit audio ports sampled at 44.1KHz -CD quality) are available to transfer audio from local to remote for a line out / headphone use case. 8 channels of digital HDMI audio are also supported simultaneously with the analog jack audio.
Up to 150ft (50m) over Cat6a / Cat7 cable
ADDERLink X-DVI PRO-MS requires one CATx (CAT7a recommended) cable per video head. The X-DVI PRO-MS delivers video alongside USB data and audio over two CATx cable. Dependent upon cable type, quality and connections distances may vary. See Technical specification for detailed rules. The extended profile DDC EDID data from the display is captured to ensure that your system is configured to deliver optimal video performance.
Intelligent Cable Modelling
The X-DVI PRO-MS has been designed to be used in many different environments across many different types and makes of cable. To ensure the quality of your DVI signal is always optimal, Adder have modelled a broad range of cables and integrated these models into the X-DVI PRO-MS. As a result, the user has greater flexibility over the CATx connections, allowing you to make use of existing CATx infrastructure.
Plug and Play
AdderLink X-DVI PRO MS extenders are delivered in a zero config state so you can plug them in and start working with them straight away. There's no need for drivers or software to be installed.
Fully platform independent
The ADDER X-DVIPRO-MS2 supports fully transparent USB connections and is able to support all common hardware platforms including PC, Sun and MAC and their associated peripherals.
High density rack mount option
Both transmitter and receiver units can be used stand-alone or up to 8 units to can be mounted into a 2U 19" chassis (X-RMK-CHASSIS).
Built to last
Adder Technology have a well-earned reputation for creating products that perform well and stay the course. The X-DVI PRO MS extender units are no exception and feature tough metallic enclosures to ensure they can easily withstand everyday treatment. The internal components and external connectors too are selected for their reliability in addition to their performance characteristics.
