    Transmit high-definition DVI video, stereo audio, and pollable RS-232 data over CATx copper with our Multi DVI-D Extenders.

    The model featured here is the video/audio/addressable duplex RS-232 receiver, which you pair with the compatible AC1103A transmitter for a complete Multi DVI-D CATx Extender system.

    The flexible, daisychainable Multi DVI-D CATx Extenders support all VESA modes to 1600 x 1200, as well as full HDTV formats up to 1080p.

    Because they support addressable duplex serial communications, they enable you to independently control each connected display device in a distribution network.

    They're particularly ideal for controlling digital signage remotely—turn each display on or off, check and update display settings (brightness, contrast, etc.), and even receive data from interactive devices such as touch screens.

    As standard, the Multi DVI-D Extenders transmit up to 600 feet (183 m) over CAT5, CAT5e, or CAT6 cable.

    But you can also convert the transmitters and receivers to extend over fiber simply by adding optional plug-and-play fiber modules (AC1105A–AC1106A). Depending on the version ordered, the optical fiber module sets transmit signals up to 500 meters (1604.4 ft.) over duplex multimode fiber or as far as 10 kilometers (6.2 mi.) over a single strand of single-mode fiber.

    You can even set up a mixed-media, multipoint daisychained receiver application. Signals from a single source, for instance, can be distributed to an unlimited number of displays around a campus using a single chain that includes fiber from one building to the next and UTP cable runs within each building.

    Plus, the transmitters' local video port can be used for local monitoring or for cascading to any transmitter for additional outputs. To distribute signals to cascaded transmitters, simply add video splitters.

    Because the Multi DVI-D CATx Extenders use digital formatting, you get optimum signal repetition with ideal source replication over any supported distance. Plus they use a proprietary encoding algorithm for a higher degree of signal security in both copper and fiber applications.

    NOTE: To extend DVI-D video only (without stereo audio and pollable serial control data support) over CATx or fiber, see our DVI-D only transmitter and receiver models (AC1100A and AC1102A).

    This product works with:
  • Multi DVI-D CATx Extender Transmitter (DVI-D/Stereo Audio/Addressable Duplex RS-232) (AC1103A)
  • Rackmount Kit for (3) Multi DVI-D Extenders (AC1011)
  • To convert a transmitter/receiver for extending over fiber instead of CATx, also order a fiber module set:
  • Multi DVI-D Multimode Duplex Fiber Module Set, Transmitter/Receiver Pair, LC (AC1105A)
  • Multi DVI-D Single-Mode Simplex Fiber Module Set, Transmitter/Receiver Pair, LC (AC1106A)
