Features
DESCRIPTION
• Transmits single link DVI-D/HDMI and RS-232 signals over two CAT 5-type cables
— Standard UTP/STP cables provide an economical, easily installed cable solution.
The Extron DVI 201 is a transmitter and receiver set that enables DVI - Digital Visual Interface
or HDMI - High Definition Multimedia Interface signals to be carried over distances significantly
greater than the specified 5 meter (15 foot) limitation for standard DVI cables. Linked together
using two economical and integration friendly CAT 5, CAT 5e, CAT 6, or CAT 7 cables, the
DVI 201 transmitter and receiver work together to send single link DVI-D or HDMI signals over
200 feet (60 meters) for HDTV and XGA (1024x768).
• Inputs: DVI-D connector, captive screw connector - DVI 201 Tx
• Outputs: DVI-D connector, captive screw connector - DVI 201 Rx, local DVI-D
output - DVI 201 Tx
• Sends 720p, 1080i, and XGA (1024x768) signals over 200 feet (60 meters),
1080p/60 and 1920x1200 signals over 100 feet (30 meters) — Utilization of STP
- Shielded Twisted Pair cabling provides added protection from outside interference and
increases overall signal transmission distances.
• Local monitor output — The DVI 201 Tx transmitter features a DVI-D output for
connection to a local monitor.
• Supports DDC and HDCP copy protection transmission — The DVI 201 fully
supports long distance transmission of DDC and HDCP signals.
• DDC routing to local or remote display — At the DVI 201 Tx, the DDC or HDCP signal
is directed to either the local display or the remote display, depending on which is more
critical in receiving the signal.
• Remote powering of transmitter or receiver — Only one power supply is necessary
to power both devices.
• Bi-directional RS-232/IR pass-through — Bi-directional RS-232 control or IR signals
can be transmitted alongside the DVI or HDMI signals, so that the remote display can be
controlled without the need for additional cabling.
• Fully supports HDMI signals when used with optional Extron HDMI-DVI adapters
— Supports CEC Consumer Electronics Control signal transmission.
The DVI 201 supports the long distance transmission of HDTV signals with HDCP High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection for copy protection of digital television broadcasts
and high resolution digital video output from DTV tuners and DVRs, HD DVD, and Blu-ray Disc
players. With the appropriate adapters from Extron, the DVI 201 is fully compatible with HDMI,
a digital video, audio, and control standard for consumer A/V products.
Several features facilitate convenient, streamlined system integration. The DVI 201 transmitter
includes a DVI loop-through to support monitoring on a local display device. RS-232 or IR
signals from a third-party control system can also be transmitted over the same cabling as
the DVI signals, for remote control of a projector or flat-panel display. Furthermore, either the
transmitter or receiver can be remotely powered over this cabling, so that external power is
necessary for only one of the devices.
The DVI 201 transmitter and receiver are housed in 1" high, quarter rack width metal enclosures.
Both devices are also available separately, and may be matched with the DVI 201 A D Decora®
transmitter or receiver to suit the requirements of a specific application.
• Compatible with DVI 201 A D Decora® transmitter and receiver — Enables mixing
and matching of desktop and wallplate transmitters and receivers to meet application
requirements.
• 1" (2.5 cm) high, quarter rack width metal enclosures — With low profile
enclosures, both devices can be discreetly installed, such as behind a plasma or LCD
flat-panel display.
• External universal power supply included, part # 70-055-01 — Provides worldwide
power compatibility.
