A new distribution amplifier from Gefen takes a single Apple flat-panel display signal (ADC) and splits it into two, allowing the creation of a dual-display workstation in which the same video information is distributed to both displays.
A slim metal box (5-inch square), the ex-tend-it ADC Splitter weighs two pounds. An ADC input is on one side; two ADC outputs are on the reverse side. When the two are used together, they create a 1x4 distribution, where one signal drives four displays. The ADC Splitter ($299) offers a 1920x1200 resolution on both displays.
Another new product from Gefen, the ADC Extender ($249) combines an active circuit with a built-in DVI and USB Repeater to extend any Apple flat-panel display plus one USB peripheral up to 16 feet from the computer using just one cable. It can also be cascaded to accomodate greater distances.
