Getting Started
The Cat5/5e/6 DVI-D + Audio Extender system consists of a Transmitter and a Receiver. The system
can extend DVI-D and audio signals over Cat5/5e/6 cable and 4-wire phone cable. By taking
advantage of low-cost Cat5/5e/6 FTP cable, the Cat5 DVI-D Extender can simplify installation, extend
AV signal and save cost.
The Cat5 DVI-D Extender system is perfect for digital signage and public information display
applications where crystal-clear, high-resolution digital video needs to be shown without distance
limitations.

Installation and Operation
DVI-C5-LC-R Installation
a. Device Connection: Plug power adapter to DVI-C5-LC-R, the orange LED above RJ45 should
turn ON to indicate the power on status. The other LED should turn off, since there is no
input of video signal from “ SYSTEM LINK” port.
b. The “STATUS” LED in the front panel will turn ON as the EQ/FOCUS control switch to the left
end and the EQ/FOCUZ will stay on AUTO. This will not function until the Receiver gets video
signal from “SYSTEM LINK” port.
c. Connect DVI monitor’s DVI cable to the Receiver.
Selection of Cable
a. Most makes and versions of Cat 5/5e/6 cables will work with DVI-C5-LC-R Receiver.
However, since the quality and characteristics of Cat 5/5e/6 cables varies it has been found
that some perform better than others. The major factor influencing the transmitting
distance is the skew property of the cables. Skew represents the difference in propagation
delay between the fastest and slowest set of wire pairs. A lower skew will mean a longer
video transmitting distance.

b. Skew Property: A Cat 5/5e/6 cable with a skew lower than 15ns/100m should enable a
cascading length of < 80m (275 ft) at 800x600, <50m at 1024x768, and < 40m at
1280x1024.
c. Termination: The RJ45 terminations to the Cat 5/5e/6 cable must be made to the EIA 568B
specifications.

d. Connect the Cable: Plug one end of the cable to DVI-C5-LC-R Receiver’s RJ45 “SYSTEM LINK”
port. The Receivers connected monitor should display now and the green LED above
DVI-C5-LC-R’s RJ45 port should turn ON to reflect the DVI signal activation. For DVI-C5-LC-R,
you can manually adjust the EQ/FOCUS to have the best DVI display. The display DVI
resolution will also relate to the distance been extended. It will be better to test prior to
actual installation and should not exceed the suggested frequency and corresponding
distance.

Multi-Port DVI-C5-2/4/8 Splitter / Extender Installation
a. First Time Setup: Turn off the DVI output device (PC or DVD Player) and monitors.
b. Connection: Connect local DVI monitor and speaker to the “VIDEO/AUDIO OUT” of the
transmitter and take one DVI integrated cable DVI-C5-180AT), plug DVI end to
“VIDEO/AUDIO IN” port of transmitter and the other end of the cable to PC’s DVI-D video
and speaker ports.
c. Connect power adapter.
d. Turn ON your DVI output device and monitor to confirm the function of display. The “LINK”
LED of the transmitter should turn Orange to indicate the connection of a local DVI monitor
and the “ACTIVE” LED should turn Blue to indicate an activated DVI-D signal.
e. The transmitter has built in an EDID simulator, when you connect local DVI monitor, the
transmitter will automatically record the EDID from DVI monitor. When you not connecting
DVI monitor locally, the transmitter will simulate the EDID communication like a regular
monitor and activate the DVI signal of PC.

Local Connection of Multi-Port Transmitter
Monitor and Speaker Connection through RJ45 and RJ11 Ports
a. Refer to previous section for Receiver to install and prepare the cable to be connected.
b. RJ45 VIDEO with DVI-C5-LC-R: If the video connection is HDMI type, then you will need to
use appropriate DVI-HDMI adapter to connect. The supported DVI-D resolution and distance
is similar to regular DVI cable. It supports 800x600@100m, 1024x768@70m,
1280x1024@60m, 1920x1200@35m.
c. RJ11 AUDIO: The RJ11 ports in the back of the Transmitter support Stereo Audio for each
connector. Prepare one 4-wire phone cable or use 4 wires out of the Cat 5/5e/6 cable to
make the RJ11 connector. The pin definition of RJ45 is one to one and the supported length
is greater than 50 meters (longer than the supported length of DVI-D)

General Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Solution

Off-Center Screen Image, Odd
Colors or No Picture
No Image


Try adjusting the brightness, sharpness, contrast, and color
balance controls of your monitor.
Try adjusting the centering and positioning controls of your
monitor to position the picture on the screen.
Ensure that the monitor cable is securely fastened to the DVI
and Monitor port.
Installation of Multiple Transmitters
a. Multiple Transceivers: By using additional DVI-C5-R Transceivers, it is possible to extend the
system almost indefinitely to remote DVI-D displays.
b. From “VIDEO / AUDIO OUT”: Use one set of standard DVI/Audio cable. Connect one end
from “VIDEO / AUDIO OUT” of first layers Transmitter and the other end to “DVI / AUDIO IN”
port of the second layer’s Transmitter (as shown below).
