Connectivity solutions provider Gefen today announced the availability of several new DisplayPort Extreme cable solutions. Timed to match the rapid adoption of the new interface, which is predicted to outpace traditional interfaces leading up to 2013, Gefen’s DisplayPort Extreme extenders come in conveniently pre-terminated lengths of 75 (23m), 100 (30m), 150 (45m), 210 (64m) and 300 feet (91m).
Without using one of these solutions, users are limited to a 50 foot (15m) distance between computer and display. For many audio/video professionals creating edit bays or working with digital signage displays, this 50 foot distance is too limited.
“Gefen’s new DisplayPort Extreme cables enable high quality audio and video to be extended simply over one cable, with an impeccable remote performance,” said Hagai Gefen, president and CEO, Gefen Inc. “Without the DisplayPort Extreme solutions, computer users are limited to a fraction of the distance available.”
Equipped on both ends with DisplayPort connectivity, these cables offer plug and play operability, using power to propel high resolution video with audio up to 300 feet in distance. Both single or dual link video modes are supported up to 2560×1600 resolutions.
The use of fiber optic components guarantees any resolution can be delivered in a pure digital format without compromising signal integrity. HDCP compliance is supported for those integrating home entertainment video.
