System Requirements for Setup
Congratulations on your purchase of the Stretch DVI
Optical DVI (Digital Visual Interface) Extension Module. This manual contains
information that will assist you in installing and operating the product.
Hardware requirements
You have to have a DVI graphic controller or card having a DVI
port in your PC, SUN or Mac systems. It should support the
maximum graphic resolution feature of displays to be connected.
No special requirements for memory size, CPU speed and
chipsets, if you’ve already properly installed your DVI graphic
controllers or cards.
Product Description
The M1-201DA-TR optical DVI module transmits four (4) optical data, Red,
Green, Blue and clock and can be extended up to 1500 meters (4920ft) over
two LC multi or single-mode fiber at WUXGA (1920x1200) at 60Hz vertical
refresh rate. The EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) in a display can
be read and restored by just plugging once transmitter to the display. This

M1-201DA-TR Optical DVI Extension Module: One (1) pair
DC power adapter: Two (2) units
User’s Manual
Option Product: Duplex LC Patch Cord (Single or Multi-mode fiber).
The transmitter (Tx) module of M1-201DA-TR is designed for power
protection circuit from conflict of power supply between the external
DC power adapter and your graphic card through the DVI pin. It offers
an option of whether to use an AC/DC power adapter depending on
power supply capability of the graphic card through the +5V pin, you
are using.
However, the receiver (Rx) module should be supplied by an AC/DC
power adapter.
Note 1: In general, most of laptops or desktop PCs with PCI Express
graphic card require using an AC/DC power adapter for the transmitter
Note 2: If you use laptop or Desktop PC with PCI Express graphic card,
we recommend using 5V power adapter for the transmitter.

Step 5
Important: Please use the installation procedure below. Improper or no
operation may result if the start-up sequence is not correctly followed.
Connect LC optical fibers between the transmitter and the receiver as shown in
figure 4.
Step 1
Carefully unpack the contents of the shipping group.
Step 2
Plug the 5V power adapter to the power jack of the transmitter. Ensure the
blue LED ON after blinking two times.

Note: Both of single-mode and multi-mode fiber are applicable to M1-201DA-TR
up to 500meters. In the case of longer than 500meters, you have to use singlemode fibers.
Step 6
Plug the transmitter to the DVI receptacle of the DVI source such as PC.
Figure 2 – Connection of power adapter to the transmitter
Note: You don’t need to connect the power adapter to the transmitter if the
graphic source provides enough power to operate the transmitter. Please,
refer to AC/DC Power Adapter Technical Advisory on page 1-2.

Note: Be recommended NOT to use any intermediate cable or adapter between
them to avoid undesirable performance degradation.
Step 3
Please, check if the maximum resolution of the display is UXGA (1600x1200).
Otherwise, follow the instructions for Self-EDID Programming Procedure on
page 1-5.
Step 7
Plug the receiver to the DVI receptacle of the display.
Step 4
Plug the 5V power adapter to the power jack of the receiver. Ensure the blue

Self-EDID Programming Procedure
The graphic source equipment generally requires communication of display information
(EDID). Display information (EDID) contains resolution and timing information for your
The display displays only black screen.
M1-201DA-TR supports Self-EDID programming. Self-EDID programming means that
the EDID from the display is stored in the transmitter. You should use Self-EDID
programming feature if the resolution of the display is not UXGA(1600x1200). Follow
these steps to record the EDID of the display into the transmitter unit.
- Ensure that all plugs and jacks used by external power supplies (both
Opticis and others) are firmly connected. Ensure the blue LED ON.
- Ensure that the DVI ports are firmly plugged in to the PC and display.
- Ensure that the transmitter and receiver modules plugged correctly to the
PC and display, respectively.
Note1 : If you know that EDID is not required by the source, Self-EDID
programming is not necessary.
- Check if the PC and display are powered on and properly booted.
Note2 : The default EDID in factory ship-out is programmed in the VESA standard
of UXGA (1600x1200) 60Hz.
- Reset the system by de-plugging and re-plugging the transmitter DVI port or
receiver DVI port, or by de-plugging and re-plugging the power cord plugs of
transmitter and receiver modules.
Step 1
- Re-boot up the system while connecting the optical DVI extension module.
Power on the display.
Screen is distorted or displays noises.
Step 2
Insert the included 5V DC power adapter into the transmitter.
Step 3
Push the EDID PRGM. button of the transmitter with a narrow pin. After fourth
time blinking of Self-EDID LED, it will be turned off.
- Check if the graphic resolution is properly set. Go to the display properties of
Windows and tap the settings.
- Ensure that the resolution sets less than WUXGA (1920x1200) at 60Hz
refresh ratio.
- Reset the system. Disconnect and reconnect the optical DVI cables or 5V
power adapters.

Step 4
Connect the transmitter to the display while turned on, not to the PC. The
LED on the transmitter will begin to blink rapidly. Blinking indicates reading the
EDID. LED will be turned OFF after blinking for about 18~20 sec. The monitor
EDID has been recorded.
No special maintenance is required for the optical DVI module and power
adapters. Ensure that the DVI modules and power adapters are stored or
used in a benign environment free from liquid or dirt contamination.
There are no user serviceable parts. Refer all service and repair issues to
Technical Support and Service
Disconnect the transmitter from the display. Then, LED ON again.
