INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your purchase of the Firewire 800 Extender. Your complete

Gefen’s reliable, plug-and-play products supplement cross-platform computer
systems, professional audio/video environments and HDTV systems of all sizes

The Gefen Firewire 800 Extender
This solution uses a sender and receiver system to instantly send your data from
your source to your extended Firewire device. It boasts a remarkable transfer
rate of up to 980 Mbps and easily bridges distances up to 1640 feet (500 meters).
This gives you the freedom to operate your computer based equipment and video
cameras as if they were connected locally with no signal degradation or time lag.
How It Works
Simply connect your computer to the Firewire Extender 800 sender unit with the
supplied cable. Connect your extended device to the receiver unit - up to 1640
feet away. One 2-strand LC-LC fiber optic cable, available in several lengths from
Gefen, connect sender (computer) to receiver (Firewire device).
