The 1142 series DVI-D cable is
a shielded, dual-link, DVI-D to DVI-D digital
video monitor cable. Unlike single-link DVI cables,
dual-link DVI features a full set of pins for increased
bandwidth, allowing you to view higher resolutions
at longer distances without loss or noise interference.
Most digital displays (LCDs and Plasmas), nearly all computer video cards,
and many (pre-HDMI) DVD players are compatible with
the all-digital standard of DVI. The DataPro
DVI-D dual-link cable will provide the highest fidelity
picture from your digital source, and if you
are using High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP)
hardware, our DVI cables will negotiate the HDCP protocol
for copy-protected media.
This cable has male DVI-D connectors on each end. They are dual-link
DVI connectors, which means the full bank of pins is wired. If you are looking
for something that is analog-compatible, we also
stock DVI-I cables.
Unlike many DVI-D cables, every DataPro DVI cable is shielded against radio frequency
interference (RFI), thanks to braided wire shielding and copper connector shells.
Shielding prevents electromagnetic signals from interfering with the data transmitted
over the DVI cable. RFI can occur for many reasons, including other electronic devices,
wireless and cellular phones, commercial broadcasting antennas, and power cables.
DVI signals subject to interference can display inaccurate pixels, have "sparkling" effects,
or simply not appear at all.
