OPERATION NOTES
READ THESE NOTES BEFORE INSTALLING
OR OPERATING THE CAT5•5000HD SYSTEM
* The CAT5•5000HD units are housed in a metal box for better RF shielding.
* In order to extend the full 50 meters you need a high quality CAT5e cable.
* CAT6 cable is suitable for high resolutions at 50 meters.
* If using a ADC-DVI Adapter, the "5V to cable" jumper by the input connector on the
sender unit needs to be enabled.
INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the new ex•tend•it CAT5•5000HD series by Gefen, Inc.
The ex•tend•it CAT5•5000HD by Gefen allows users the benefits of extending dual DVI
displays and USB beyond the desktop. In a growing number of applications, broadcast
stations and production facilities need to locate a computer remotely from the keyboard,
mouse, and video monitor. A CPU may need to be shared between several users, for example, or moved to another room because of annoying fan noise.
The CAT5•5000HD series can be used to extend computers with noisy fans, printers, hard
drives, scanners, cameras, keyboards, mouse, and any other USB. With the potential to
cover the distance of 150 feet, industry standard Category 5 (CAT-5) cables are used for
the extension of all the devices.

HOW IT WORKS
CONTENTS
The CAT5•5000HD system consists of:
--- (1) CAT5•5000HDS sender unit
--- (1) CAT5•5000HDR receiver unit
--- (2) 5 VDC power supplies
--- (2) DVI to HDMI cable M-M (6FT)
--- (1) USB cable (06FT)
--- (1) User Manual
HOW IT WORKS
The CAT5•5000HD sender unit sits next to your computer. The cables supplied with the
CAT5•5000HD connects your DVI source(s) and USB to the send unit. The CAT5•5000HD
receiver unit sits next to your DVI displays - up to 150 feet away. The displays and USB
plug into the back of the CAT5•5000HD receiver unit. Four CAT-5 cables connect the
CAT5•5000HD-S and the CAT5•5000HD-R units to each other.

SERVICE SWITCH USAGE GUIDE
Gefen CAT5 DVI Extenders (sender and receiver) both contain a pair of service
switches located on the board inside the case. These service switches are used
to select from a set of configurations that will equalize the signal to best match the
conditions in your setup. For the CAT5 5000HD, there is one bank per monitor in both
the sender and receiver.

Adjustment Guidelines:
1)
Higher EQ level is used to equalize poor/low quality CAT-5e cables
2)
Stronger Line Driver is used to boost signals through longer cables
3)
It is an optimal balance of Line Driver and EQ that will result in the best possible
picture.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of CAT-5e cable should I be using?
Solid core CAT-5e cable rated at 350 Mhz, terminated in 568a or 568b is the minimum
requirement. CAT-6 cables are also a viable cable to use. Higher resolutions and
transmission lengths greater then 80 feet might require low skew cables for optimum
performance.
Why does the CAT5 sender unit have a HDMI connector on the input?
A HDMI connector was used on the input to optimize space on the board by using the
smaller connector. HDMI is electrically equivalent to DVI-D.
I’m getting no video on the screens, what can I check?
First thing to check is make sure that the video CAT5 is linked to the other video CAT5
port and the same with the DDC ports. Test to make sure the units are working with short
CAT-5e cables 15-20 feet. Units shipped starting 12-2005 have the service switches inside
the unit enabled. Please refer to the Service Switch Usage Guide on page 9.
I’m getting no video on the screens using ADC to DVI adapters, what is wrong?
ADC to DVI adapters remove the necessary 5V line that the extenders require on the input
to operate. To enable the 5V you will need to open up the sender unit. Next to each DVI/
HDMI input connector will be a jumper that needs to be shorted to enable 5V to the input.
This should only be enabled when using a ADC to DVI Adapter otherwise damage to your
video card may result.
How can I fix the flickering picture?
Flickering or a Blinking image is the result of a loss of sync between the display and the
source. Try lowering the resolution to see if that helps, if it does, the CAT-5 cables you are
using are unable to handle the bandwidth of the higher resolution and thus you are losing
sync. Try a shielded CAT-5e cable on the Video to reduce interference. You can also try
adjusting the service switches. Usually this is caused from either too much or too little of a
boost. Please refer to the service switch guide on page 9 for the different combinations.
Can I run the CAT-5 cable through a patch bay?
No, the signal will not transmit reliably

TERMINOLOGY
CAT-5
Category 5 cable, commonly known as Cat 5, is an unshielded twisted pair type cable
designed for high signal integrity. The actual standard defines specific electrical properties
of the wire, but it is most commonly known as being rated for its Ethernet capability of 100
Mbit/s. Its specific standard designation is EIA/TIA-568. Cat 5 cable typically has three
twists per inch of each twisted pair of 24 gauge copper wires within the cable.
CAT-5e
Similar to Cat 5 cable, but is enhanced to support speeds of up to 1000 megabits per
second
DDC
Short form for Display Data Channel. It is a VESA standard for communication between
a monitor and a video adapter. Using DDC, a monitor can inform the video card about its
properties, such as maximum resolution and color depth. The video card can then use
this information to ensure that the user is presented with valid options for configuring
the display
DDWG
Digital Display Working Group DDWG are the creators of the DVI specification.
DVI
Digital Visual Interface. Connection standard developed by Intel for connecting computers
to digital monitors such as flat panels and DLP projectors. A consumer electronics version,
not necessarily compatible with the PC version, is used as a connection standard for
HDTV tuners and displays. Transmits an uncompressed digital signal to the display. The
latter version uses HDCP copy protection to prevent unauthorized copying
USB
Universal Serial Bus. An external peripheral interface standard for communication between
a computer and external peripherals over a cable using bi-serial transmission.
VESA
Video Electronic Standards Association, a consortium of manufacturers formed to
establish and maintain industry wide standards for video cards and monitors. VESA was
instrumental in the introduction of the Super VGA and Extended VGA video graphics
standards with a refresh rate of 70 Hz, minimizing flicker and helping to reduce user
eyestrain and fatigue.
PS/2
A port type developed by IBM for the purpose of connecting a keyboard or mouse to a
PC. The PS/2 port has a mini DIN plug containing 6 pins. PS/2 ports are used so that
the serial port can be used by another device. The PS/2 port is often called the mouse
port.
RS-232
Recommended Standard 232. This is the de facto standard for communication through
PC serial ports. It can refer to cables and ports that support the RS232 standard.
