Anaheim, California (April 8, 2009) - Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the new DVI 201xi Tx Twisted Pair Extender. The DVI 201xi Tx enables DVI or HDMI signals to be carried over distances significantly greater than with standard DVI cables. It works together with an Extron DVI 201 or DVI 201 A D Twisted Pair Receiver and two CAT 5-type cables to send single link DVI or HDMI signals over 200 feet (60 meters) for HDTV and XGA (1024x768). The DVI 201xi Tx offers several features to optimize system integration for DVI signal transmission, including EDID Minder® which automatically manages EDID communication between the input source and the display, automatic input equalization which allows for the use of long DVI input cables by compensating for signal loss, and a rack-mountable 1U, half rack width metal enclosure.

"The DVI 201xi Tx joins our line of DVI Twisted Pair Extenders, offering integrators a cost-effective way for extending DVI signals long distances," says Lee Dodson, Vice President of Marketing for Extron. "More significantly, with EDID Minder® and automatic input equalization, this product is specifically designed to help improve reliability and performance in installations incorporating DVI signal transmissions."

The DVI 201xi Tx includes several additional features to facilitate convenient, streamlined system integration. A DVI loop-through supports monitoring on a local display. RS-232 or IR signals from a third-party control system can also be transmitted over the same cabling as the DVI signals, providing remote control of a projector or flat-panel display. Furthermore, a DVI 201 or DVI 201 A D receiver attached to the DVI 201xi Tx can be remotely powered over this cabling, so that external power is necessary only at the transmitter location.
