The Extron DVI 201 A D is a decorator-style transmitter and receiver set that enables DVI or HDMI signals to be carried over distances significantly beyond the capability of standard DVI or HDMI cables. In addition, it can accept and transmit stereo audio and RS-232 or IR signals. Linked together using two economical and integration-friendly shielded CATx or Extron STP201 cables, the DVI 201 A D transmitter and receiver work together to send single link DVI-D or HDMI signals over 200 feet (60 meters) for HDTV and XGA 1024x768.

The DVI 201 A D offers an ideal, cost effective means for extending digital video, multi-channel audio, and control signals from DVI or HDMI-equipped devices. The HDCP-compliant DVI 201 A D enables the long distance transmission of HDTV signals with HDCP for copy protection of digital television broadcasts and high resolution digital video output from DTV tuners, DVRs, and Blu-ray Disc players. The DVI 201 A D is fully compatible with HDMI signals when used with the appropriate adapters from Extron.

Several features facilitate convenient, streamlined system integration. The DVI 201 A D supports transmission of balanced or unbalanced stereo audio signals, when a separate audio cable is installed between the transmitter and the receiver. RS-232 or IR signals from a control system can also be transmitted over the same cabling as the DVI signals, providing remote control of a projector or flat-panel display. An LED indicator provides a quick means of verifying power and signal presence. Additionally, either the transmitter or receiver can be remotely powered over this cabling, so that external power is necessary for only one of the devices.

The DVI 201 A D can be used with shielded CATx cables to extend 1920x1200 and HDTV 1080p/60 signals up to 100 feet (30 meters). However, when used with Extron STP201 Shielded Digital Twisted Pair Cable, these signals can be extended up to 150 feet (45 meters). Extron STP201 cables are specially designed for superior digital signal transmission performance, featuring an S/FTP design with individually foil wrapped conductor pairs and overall braided shield for noise immunity and low crosstalk.

The DVI 201 A D transmitter and receiver are designed for wall-mounting with the included decorator-style wallplates. Both devices are also available separately, and may be matched with the standard desktop DVI 201 transmitter or receiver to suit the installation requirements of a specific application.

Features

Note: The standard DVI 201 transmitters and receivers do not accommodate separate analog stereo audio signals. The DVI 201 A D is not compatible with Extron Skew-Free™ twisted pair cable.
