Extend a DVI source over a single strand of SC fiber optic cable up to 3280 feet (one kilometer)

The GefenPRO DVI FM1500 Optical DVI Extender with Recordable EDID extends a DVI source up to 3280 feet (one kilometer) using single-mode fiber optic cable. Virtual EDID programming provides fast integration and compatibility with the input video source and the display. Resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) at 60 Hz are supported.











How It Works


Connect the Sender Unit to the DVI source. Connect the Receiver Unit to the DVI display. Use a single strand of SC fiber optic cable to connect the Sender Unit to the Receiver Unit. Connect the included 5V DC power supply to the Receiver unit and connect the power adapter to an available electrical outlet. If the source does not supply enough power to the Sender module, connect the other included power supply.

Note:  This product works with DVI format only and does not support interlaced video resolutions such as 1080i. It is not compatible with HDMI format video.
