General Specifications
The PureLink DD-250 2x5 Distribution Amplifier is designed to distribute up to 5 DVI
outputs (PC, AVR) at full 1080p HD, to as many as 5 HD display monitors with no
degradation of the original signal quality or distortion of the image.
The DD-250’s compact, durable and low power-consumption design makes it an ideal
solution for connection of the high definition video and audio content in digital display
devices, such as an LCD, Plasma, LED, Projector, etc. In addition, the DD-250 offers
quick and easy plug-and-play installation for commercial or residential systems.

Main Features
High Quality Picture - No Signal Loss / Digital Noise Free
PureLink’s Distribution Amplifiers are built to deliver the highest quality picture, preserving the
native resolutions of the video sources without any signal loss. At the same time, the digital
noise that may affect the picture quality will also be eliminated. Due to the nature of the
digital signals and passage through multiple stages of connection when using distribution
amplifiers, it is important to eliminate the digital noise and boost the signal strength to
preserve and enhance the video signal quality.
Signal Amplification for reliability and long-length signal transmission
PureLink’s 12V power adapter supplies adequate power to amplify the video signals from the
video source. This is necessary as the overall length from the video source to the displays is
longer when using the distribution amplifiers (distance from the video source to the
distribution amplifier + distance from the distribution amplifier to the display). In most cases,
the overall distance that the DVI signal will need to travel is over 10ft. Due to the nature of
DVI signals, amplification is necessary to ensure the video quality and reliability. (Without
amplification, there may be occasional blackouts or blinking effects) With this amplification
feature, your video display can be extended up to 2300ft using our fiber optic DVI extenders
or cables.
Support HDMI v1.3
The DD-250 is fully compatible with HDMI version 1.3
HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) Compliant
PureLink’s DVI distribution amplifiers are fully HDCP compliant. Many video sources such as
Blu-ray DVD players and Satellite/Cable Receivers are HDCP encrypted to protect the
copyrights of those who created it.
For these video sources to be displayed correctly, an
HDCP compliant device (e.g., TV, DVI Switch, Distribution Amplifier, etc.) is required.
Setup / Installation
1. Turn off the whole system before connecting any cables
2. Connect your video source’s output DVI cable to DD-250’s input port
using a standard DVI cable.
3. Connect the DD-250’s output to your display device(s) input port using a standard
DVI cable.
4. Plug the 12V power adapter in to the DD-250
5. You may start turning on your system in the following order : DD-250 -> Display ->Video
6. Input LED #1,2 and Output LED # 1~5 will be lit if everything is properly installed.
The LCD screen will display the following message after power-ON
< DVI >
The LCD screen will display the input video resolution when signal is detected
1080P 2ch
The LCD screen will display the following message when there is no signal detected.
No Signal
How to program EDID (Extended Display Identification Data)
In EDID programming, there are two different ways of saving the EDID information.
1. Save the EDID from an external display device connected onto output #1
2. Use our pre-programmed internal EDID library
External EDID programming:
1. Select the Input number ( make sure the input LED light is lit )
2. Connect your display device to output #1
3. Go to the MENU screen and press ENTER button to save your EDID into the DD-250
OUT1 to IN1
<- When Input# 1 is selected
OUT1 to IN2
When Input# 2 is selected ->
You will see the following error message if the EDID data program failed or there is no EDID
data present. You may also want to check the cable connection or monitor’s power supply if an
error occurs:
EDID Loading!
Load Error
Internal EDID Programming:
1. Press MENU button twice or more to find the appropriate EDID data for your application,
and then press the ENTER button to confirm the change.
OUT1 to IN1
1080i 2ch EDID
The internal EDID list is as follows:
The number represents the number of times the MENU button is pressed
8. 1600x900
2. 800x600
9. 1600x1200
3. 1024x768
10. 1680x1050
4. 1280x1024
11. 1920x1200
5. 1360x768
12. 1080i 2ch(audio)
6. 1366x768
13. 1080p 2ch
7. 1400x1050
14. 1080p Multi
Please note that all DD-250 are normally set to 1920x1080p 2ch audio as a default setting
when released from the factory. If the default setting does not work for your system,
please program either an external EDID or an EDID from our pre-loaded selections .

Check to see if the power LED light is on.
No picture (or signal)
1. In case your video source is HDCP enabled, make sure your
Or Poor picture
video display (HDTV) is HDCP compliant.
2. If you are using a copper based DVI cable, overall length of
the cables (length of the cable from video source to switch and
length of the cable from switch to display) should not exceed
20ft. Exceeding 20ft. with copper based cables will result in no or
poor picture quality. To extend beyond 20ft, please use fiber
optic DVI extension cables such as the Purelink HDX II series
3. Use high quality DVI cables.
4. If you are using computers, try other refresh rate settings.
Most HDTV’s have refresh rate of 48Hz and computer’s video
cards are usually set at higher refresh rate. Try lower refresh
5. Make sure all DVI connectors are tightly secured to all DVI
ports. Loosened screws on the DVI connectors will result in no or
poor picture.
6. Turn off all equipment (video source, switch and HDTV) and
restart all equipment.
Incorrectly sized picture
Please remember that your video source will only transmit one
/resolution or No picture
resolution setting. To connect varying resolution displays
(1920x1200 resolution display and 1024 x 768 resolution
display) the resolution setting of your video source must be set
to the lowest resolution setting (1024 x 768).
