Extron introduces its new DDX 102 Dual Link DVI Fiber Optic Extender. The DDX 102 is a tiny (only 1.5″ x 2.8″ x 0.6″) transmitter and receiver set for long haul delivery of DVI signals over fiber optic cabling. Extron says it uses all-digital technology to deliver pixel-for-pixel transmission of video images up to 2560×1600 resolutions, including HDTV 1080p/60. The extender delivers dual link DVI-D signals up to 500 meters (1,640 feet) over two multimode cables or single link DVI signals over one fiber optic cable.
The DDX 102 transmitter and receiver feature industry standard LC-type connectors, and can be used for point-to-point fiber optic applications with dual link DVI requirements. The units connect directly to the DVI source and display devices, eliminating the need for additional mounting hardware. EDID Minder automatically manages EDID by maintaining continuous communication with the source, ensuring that it powers up properly and reliably outputs content for display. The transmitter also provides an EDID capture mode to store display EDID.
