The Extron DDX 102 Fiber Optic Extender is an extremely compact transmitter and receiver set that provides an effective, economical solution for extending dual link DVI-D signals long distances over fiber optic cabling. It uses all-digital technology to deliver perfect pixel-for-pixel transmission of DVI computer-video images up to 2560x1600, including HDTV 1080p/60 and 2K. The transmitter and receiver work together to send dual link DVI signals up to 500 meters (1,640 feet) over two multimode cables. Designed for AV systems, the DDX 102 includes integrator-friendly features such as EDID Minder® and direct device connection.

The DDX 102 transmitter and receiver are housed in compact DVI cable-type clamshell enclosures. The units connect to the fiber optic cables via industry standard LC-type connectors. To simplify installation, the cables can be run through conduits and other tight spaces before the transmitter and receiver are attached. The extender set connects directly to DVI source and display devices so no special mounting is necessary.

To ensure a reliable DVI connection, EDID Minder automatically manages EDID by maintaining continuous EDID communication with the source. EDID Minder ensures that the source powers up properly and reliably outputs content for display. Pre-stored EDID is communicated to the source. Alternatively, the transmitter can be set to capture and store EDID information when connected to a display.

The DDX 102 is ideal for a wide range of applications requiring long distance transmission of high resolution content. Because transmission of content is inherently secure and immune to outside interference, fiber applications are favored in government, military, rental and staging, and medical environments.


Note: The DDX 102 does not support transmission of DVI signals with HDCP content.
