Gefen has released two new dual link DVI products: the DVI-DL Switcher and the DVI-2000 HD, both of which work with high definition video transmitted through dual link DVI, which uses all 24 pins of the connector to send video at resolutions up to 3840 x 2400 at 60 Hz.
The DVI-DL Switcher (MSRP $699) allows you to connect two sources to a display equipped with just one input. You select which source to view manually or with a remote control. The switch between sources occurs instantly, offering immediate access to the source.
The DVI-2000 HD (MSRP $1399) uses a sender and receiver system to send dual link DVI video up to 1640 feet (500 meters) over fiber optic cables. The sender unit connects to the source and the receiver unit to the extended display. Sender and receiver are linked by multimode fiber optic cables designed to prevent signal degradation at long distances.
Both the 2x1 DVI-DL Switcher and the DVI-2000 HD are engineered to deliver high definition video that is HDCP (high bandwidth digital content protection) compliant. Both will be available online at www.gefen.com or through Gefen resellers.
