DataPro's DVI Video Extension Cable is used to increase the length
of a DVI-D cable to complete the connection. It is fully wired for
Dual-Link signals, although it will readily extend Single-Link cables
The dual-link bandwith ensures maximum quality while extending the
signal to reach those extra lengths. Keep in mind, however, that the Digital Video Interface
specification does not guarantee DVI signals to work beyond 16 feet (although maximum length depends on the
devices in use). We often get 30-35 feet with our in-house tests, but equipment quality
and environment can dramatically affect the image. If you are extending beyond 16 feet from source to display,
your results may vary.
For optimal image fidelity at longer lengths, you may also use a powered
DVI inline booster to clean and amplify the signal
during the run.
Both connectors are of type Dual-Link DVI-D. This cable will extend a signal that is
being adapted from HDMI or DisplayPort, but it will not extend a signal that
is being adapted to/from VGA.
