The Extron DVI 104 Fiber Optic Extender is a transmitter and receiver set that provides an effective, economical solution for extending single link DVI-D signals long distances over fiber optic cables. It uses all-digital technology to deliver perfect pixel-for-pixel transmission of computer-video images up to 1920x1200 resolution, including HDTV 1080p/60 and 2K. The DVI 104 extends DVI-D signals over four multimode fiber optic cables at lengths up to 500 meters (1,640 feet).

The transmitter and receiver are housed in extremely compact DVI cable-type clamshell enclosures and connect to the fiber optic cables via industry standard LC-type connectors. The cables can be run through conduits and other tight spaces without the DVI 104 transmitter and receiver attached, simplifying installation. Furthermore, the transmitter and receiver units connect directly to DVI sources and displays, so that no special mounting is necessary.

To ensure a reliable DVI connection, the DVI 104 features EDID Minder®, which automatically manages EDID communication with the input source, so that the source powers up properly and reliably delivers content to the display.

The DVI 104 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, applications utilizing fiber optics are favored in many commercial, rental and staging, and medical environments.


Note: The DVI 104 does not support transmission of DVI signals with HDCP - High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection.
