Introduction
About this Manual
This manual contains information about the DVI DL 201 Tx/Rx
signal transmitter and receiver, with information on how to
mount, install, and operate these units.
In this manual, unless otherwise specified, the terms
"DVI DL 201" or "DVI DL 201 Tx/Rx" refer to both the
transmitter (DVI DL 201 Tx) and the receiver (DVI DL 201 Rx).
The term "transmitter" refers to the DVI DL 201 Tx, and
"receiver" refers to the DVI DL 201 Rx.
About the DVI DL 201 Tx/Rx
The DVI DL 201 Tx and DVI DL 201 Rx are dual link DVI
transmitter/receiver units. They can be purchased as a pair or
as individual units.
Each purchased pair and each individual unit is shipped with a
single external desktop 12 VDC power supply. A single power
supply, connected to the transmitter, is able to power both
devices.
Using three CAT 5/5e/6/7 twisted pair cables, DVI-D signals
can be extended up to 100' (30 m) at resolutions up to 2560 x
1600 @ 60 Hz. This is significantly further than the 15' (5 m)
specified for standard dual link DVI cables.
N
The DVI DL 201 Tx/Rx works with unshielded twisted
pair (UTP) cable or shielded twisted pair (STP) cable.
However, STP cables are required to ensure FCC Class A
and CE compliance.
DVI DL 201 Tx/Rx Features
Transmits dual link DVI-D signals over three CAT 5/5e/6/7
cables — Standard twisted pair cables provide an economical,
easily installed cable solution.
Long distance transmission — Signals are transmitted up to
100' (30 m), which is significantly further than the 15' (5 m)
specified for standard dual link DVI cables.
Local monitor output — The transmitter has a DVI-D output for
connection to a local monitor.
DDC routing to local or remote display — A two pole switch
allows the user to determine whether DDC signals are routed to
the local or the remote display device.
1-2
DVI DL 201 Tx/Rx • Introduction
EDID Minder — The EDID Minder maintains continuous EDID
(Extended Display Identification Data) communication with
the attached source. This ensures that the DVI source powers
up correctly and maintains a proper video output, even if the
display is off.
Control communications pass-through — The DVI DL 201
passes through RS-232 (two way) or IR (one way) control
signals, to a remote display.
Compact design — The transmitter is 1U high, a half rack wide
and 3" deep, for easy rack mounting near the source device.
The receiver is 1" high, a quarter rack wide and 3" deep,
allowing multiple mounting options near the display device.
Remote powering of receiver — A single power supply,
connected to the transmitter, is able to power both the
transmitter and receiver.

UL guidelines for rack mounting
The following Underwriters Laboratories (UL) guidelines are
relevant to the safe installation of the DVI DL 201 Tx/Rx in a
rack:
2-2
1.
Elevated operating ambient temperature — If the unit
is installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the
operating ambient temperature of the rack environment
may be greater than room ambient temperature. Therefore,
install the equipment in an environment compatible with
the maximum ambient temperature (Tma: +122 °F, +50 °C)
specified by Extron.
2.
Reduced air flow — Install the equipment in the rack
so that the equipment gets adequate air flow for safe
operation.
3.
Mechanical loading — Mount the equipment in the rack
so that uneven mechanical loading does not create a
hazardous condition.
4.
Circuit overloading — Connect the equipment to
the supply circuit and consider the effect that circuit
overloading might have on overcurrent protection and
supply wiring. Give appropriate consideration to the
equipment nameplate ratings when addressing this
concern.
5.
Reliable earthing (grounding) — Maintain reliable
grounding of rack-mounted equipment. Pay particular
attention to supply connections other than direct
connections to the branch circuit (such as the use of power
strips).

DDC switches
When the DVI-D source device boots up, it uses the Display
Data Channel (DDC), a two-way communication protocol, to
obtain Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) from the
display device. This allows the source to output a resolution
that matches the capabilities of the display.
A bank of three switches allows the user to determine how the
source device will obtain the EDID. The EDID can be obtained
directly from the display device, or from the internal memory
within. The three switches are:
Default EDID — When the Default EDID switch
is on (factory default; see figure at right), an EDID
showing a typical Dual Link DVI display resolution
of 2560x1600 @ 60 Hz is passed to the source device.
The EDID Minder switch must also be on for the
Default EDID switch to function.

Using the EDID Minder to read and store EDID
from a display
During boot up, the DVI-D source device uses Display Data
Channel (DDC) to obtain Extended Display Identification Data
(EDID) from the display device. This allows the output signal to
match the resolution and refresh rate of the display device.
The DVI DL 201 Tx/Rx uses Extron's EDID Minder, which
allows the user to store and use EDID from any display device.
To use this feature, follow these steps:
Disconnect all devices and cables from the transmitter and
receiver.
2.
Connect the desired display to the transmitter's Local
Monitor output. For best results, the cable for this
connection should be 15' (4.5 m) or shorter.

Troubleshooting
If the DVI DL 201 Tx/Rx does not provide a high quality output
signal, check the following possibilities before contacting
your Extron representative (see the back cover for contact
information). Be sure to read all the suggestions as many of the
issues have several possible solutions.
No output signal — Check that the front panel LEDs for both
the transmitter and receiver are on (lit amber). If they are not,
check the power supply connections to the units.
If a single power supply is being used to power both units, it
must be connected to the transmitter.
N
Do not try to power both units with a single power
supply connected to the receiver as that will not provide
adequate power to the transmitter.
There are some circumstances, particularly with longer
Unsheilded Twisted Pair (UTP) cable runs, where the receiver
may not get adequate power. Under these circumstances, it may
be necessary to use two separate power supplies, one for the
transmitter and one for the receiver.
3-6
DVI DL 201 Tx/Rx • Configuration and Operation
Insure all three twisted pair cables are firmly seated in the
correct receptacles.
No output signal or poor quality signal — Check the integrity
of the UTP or STP cables between the transmitter and the
receiver.
N
The transmitter and receiver pair works with unshielded
twisted pair (UTP) or shielded twisted pair (STP) cables.
To ensure FCC Class A and CE compliance, and for
optimum performance, STP cables are recommended.
•
Ensure that the twisted pair cables are terminated correctly
and to the same standard at both ends (see "Terminating
shielded cable" on page 2-14).
•
Ensure that each RJ-45 connector is firmly seated in its
receptacle and that each transmitter port is connected to
the correct receiver port (see pages 2-14 and 2-15).
•
Ensure that the length of the twisted pair cable does
not exceed the guidelines for single link or dual link
connections (see page 2-16).
Image loss or jitter — DVI signals run at very high frequency
and are especially susceptible to bad video connections, too
many adapters, or cables that are too long. To avoid loss of an
image or introduction of image jitter:
•
The DVI cable on the input to the transmitter or the output
from the receiver should not exceed 10' (3 m).
•
Use only cable designed for DVI signals.
•
Limit or avoid the use of adapters, patch panels, or
couplers with the input DVI cables, the output DVI cables,
and/or the twisted pair cables. Additional links in the
chain reduce signal integrity and overall cable length
performance.
•
Always turn on the display before the DVI video source in
order for the source to retrieve the DDC from the display.
No video signal or incorrect resolution or refresh rate — If the
source device is not able to obtain EDID information when it is
being powered on, it may not be able to send a video signal or
the signal may have the wrong resolution or refresh rate.
•
Ensure that the DDC DIP switches are set correctly for the
EDID source (see pages 3-2 to 3-5).
•
The source device must be powered on after the display
device providing the EDID source has been powered on.
Incorrect color or tint — Ensure that the twisted pair cables are
terminated correctly and to the same standard on both ends of
the cable (see page 2-14 and 2-15).
DVI DL 201 Tx/Rx • Configuration and Operation
3-7
Configuration and Operation, cont’d
Display device displays a flashing black or blue screen, snow,
or other distortion — A device that is not High-Bandwidth
Digital Content Protection (HDCP) compliant may be receiving
HDCP-encrypted signals.
The DVI DL 201 Tx/Rx is compatible with HDCP signals only
when the EDID Minder is disabled. HDCP signals can be
passed through to only one display (remote or local) and only
that display shows the signal correctly.
Signal on local monitor but not on remote display — Check
that both output devices (local and remote) can handle
resolutions equal to or greater than the EDID source.
