Extron Electronics’ DDX 102 Dual Link DVI Fiber Optic Extender is a transmitter/receiver that delivers DVI signals up to 500 meters over multimode fiber-optic cabling. The device features LC connectors and can be used for point-to-point fiber-optic applications with dual-link DVI requirements.

“The units connect directly to the DVI source and display devices, eliminating the need for additional mounting hardware,” Extron says, adding that the device “uses all digital technology to deliver perfect pixel-for-pixel transmission of video images up to 2560x1600, including HDTV 1080p/60.”

Extron’s vice president of sales and marketing Casey Hall said, “AV system designers and integrators needed a compact, cost-effective solution for extending dual-link DVI signals long distances over fiber-optic cabling. The DDX 102 provides direct device connection, a clamshell design, and a detachable cable that make it ideal for a wide variety of applications.”
