Overview
The Kramer C-AFDM/AFDM Optical All-Fiber DVI Cable is a digital highquality graphics interface between a DVI-D source (for example, a host processor
video source) and a DVI-D acceptor (for example, a display panel). The CAFDM/AFDM consists of a transmitter and a receiver, connected by all fiber
optic distribution cables with male DVI-D connectors at each end. The CAFDM/AFDM transmits both the graphic signal and display information
(DDC/HDCP) over optic fiber, thus overcoming the limit of using copper cables
for DDC.
In addition, the C-AFDM/AFDM:
Features a bandwidth of 1.65Gbps for each channel
Supports all VESA resolutions up to WUXGA (1,920x1,200), at 60Hz
refresh rate with 1 pixel/clock mode
Has 8 fiber strands: four for DDC/HDCP interconnection and four for red,
green, blue and clock transmission
Extends up to 500 meters
Does not emit any electromagnetic interference or emission on the cable,
making it suitable for any medical or other EMI sensitive environment
Electrically isolates the source from the acceptor
Can use either DC power from the graphic card or AC/DC power from an
external +5V adapter
Requires no software installation

Overview
Figure 1: Optical All-Fiber DVI Cable
3.1 System Requirements for Setup (Hardware)
You must have a DVI graphic source or card that:
Has a DVI port (for example, in your PC, SUN or Mac system) supporting
a DVI-D signal
Supports the maximum graphic resolution of the display that you want to
connect
There are no special requirements regarding:
The memory size, CPU speed and chipsets, if the DVI graphic controller
or card is properly installed
Software, if the DVI graphic controller or card is properly installed in
your Operating System
Note: The transmitter module of the Kramer Optical All-Fiber DVI Cable is
designed to use +5V internal power supplied through a DVI pin (#14) from
the graphic card. While the transmitter module may receive power from pin
14, it also has the option of being powered via an external 5V power adapter.
The receiver, however, requires an external +5V AC/DC power adapter.

Using Your Optical All-Fiber DVI Cable
This section describes how to:
Install the Optical All-Fiber DVI Cable (see section 4.1)
Avoid pitfalls when using it (see section 4.2)
4.1 Installing Your Optical All-Fiber DVI Cable
To connect the Optical All-Fiber DVI Cable, do the following:
1. Carefully remove your Optical All-Fiber DVI Cable from its packaging.
2. Connect an AC/DC power adapter to the receiver module (see Figure 2)
Figure 2: Optical All-Fiber DVI Cable – Receiver Module
3. Plug the Transmitter module of the Optical All-Fiber DVI Cable directly into
the DVI receptacle of the computer.
The Optical All-Fiber DVI Cable uses only the power +5V supplied through a
DVI pin (#14) from the graphic card.
Figure 3: Optical All-Fiber DVI Cable – Transmitter Module
4. Plug the Receiver module of the Optical All-Fiber DVI Cable into the DVI
display receptacle.
5. Turn ON the power on both the computer and the display device.
You can replace any DVI cable or an Optical All-Fiber DVI Cable with
another Optical All-Fiber DVI Cable by following the above procedures while
the computer and display device are powered up.

KRAMER: SIMPLE CREATIVE TECHNOLOGY
Using Your Optical All-Fiber DVI Cable
If the system does not work properly after the Optical All-Fiber DVI Cable is
installed, check that your computer system is capable of supplying more than
200mA.
6. If necessary, or if you prefer to do so, you can use the second AC/DC adapter,
supplied with the cable, to power the transmitter.
4.2 Avoiding Pitfalls using the Optical All-Fiber DVI Cable
In the event that any of these problems occur, we recommend the following:
If the display device shows only a black screen:
Be sure that the DVI ports are firmly plugged into the computer and the
display device
Make sure that the Transmitter and Receiver modules are correctly
plugged into the PC and display device, respectively
Check if the PC and display are powered ON and properly booted
Reset the system by unplugging and then replugging the Transmitter DVI
port or Receiver DVI port
Reboot the system while connecting the optical DVI cable system
If the screen is distorted or displays noises:
Check if the graphics resolution is properly set
Go to the Display Properties of Windows and tap the settings
Be sure that the resolution is set for UXGA (1,600 x 1,200), WUXGA or less at
60Hz refresh ratio
Reset the system
Disconnect and reconnect the optical DVI cables
4.2.1
Maintenance
These cables contain sensitive fiber optic materials that can be damaged
through rough handling.
To properly sustain the system:
Use caution during the installation and use of these cables to ensure that
you do not damage them
Do not install the cable in any environment where it is possible they could
be stepped on, run over, pinched or crushed.
Be sure that the cables are stored and used away from liquid or dirt
