Purely digital for pure video
Because the extender delivers full DVI digital video without compression or conversion, you get pure video displays with no loss of quality. The extender uses CAT7a cable to extend keyboard, mouse, and uncompressed single-link DVI-D video up to 196 feet (59.7 m) at full 1920 x 1200 at 60 Hz or 3840 x 2400 at 17 Hz resolution! It's ideal where you want to reduce environment concerns, such as heat and noise, and ensure optimal temperature control.

Go the distance
You'll get different distances depending on what cable you use and if you make direct connections or patch panel connections.

Direct cable connections: CAT7a: 196 feet (59.7 m)
CAT6: 180 feet (54.8 m)
CAT5e: 147 feet (44.8 m)

Patch Panel Connections
CAT7a: 164 feet (50 m)
CAT6: 147 feet (44.8 m)
CAT5e: 114 feet (34.7 m)

USB keyboard and mouse support
The extender also delivers bidirectional USB data, enabling USB device extension over 196 feet (59.7 m) on the same CAT7a cable. This makes the extender ideal for distributed workstations where you want to reduce environmental concerns such as heat and noise, such as in post-production suites. The extender supports a variety of USB keyboards and mice and other human interface devices (HIDs) such as touchscreens.

Extended profile DDC EDID
The Wizard DVI/USB carries extended profile DDC EDID data from your display device to the display adapter to ensure that your system is configured to deliver optimal video performance. The extended profile DDC EDID is particularly important when extending video to high performance display devices. This is essential for professional graphics users such as post production, broadcast, architecture, graphic design, medical imaging, CAD or any other applications where display performance is critical.
