The DVI Over CAT5 Transmitter allows a user to distribute a DVI signal over CAT5 cable. When used with a DVI Over CAT5 Receiver Box, this unit provides a great way to transmit and extend a DVI signal over a long distance (100-250metres depending on Receiver used).
The unit transfers the HD image signal via DVI, as well as offering Left/Right and Coaxial audio ports for the transfer of analog/digital audio signals. Through the dedicated DDC port, the device also supports HDCP and CEC.
The DVI over CAT5 Transmitter supports high definition input up to 1080P/UXGA, with output resolution following input resolution. The unit is suitable for anyone who wishes to further extend a DVI signal, and has many practical uses including digital signage, advertising, and home theatre integration.
If the HDCP and DDC status are known for the source and display, then the following scenarios will apply:
-If source and display support HDCP, users just need to use 1 CAT5/6 cable.
-If source and display don't support HDCP, users need to use 2 CAT5/6 cables.
-If display supports HDCP but source doesn't, users just need to use 1 CAT5/6 cable.
-If source supports HDCP but display doesn't, there's no result.
