The DVI-Repeater has been developed for environments where it’s necessary to isolate the computer from the display itself. Practical applications include sound rooms or configurations that include a projector display that has to be away from the computer itself. Gefen said that the DVI-Repeater can work with cables 50, 100, or 150 feet in length.
The DVI-Repeater is priced at US$399. Gefen said that it’s currently shipping and can be purchased directly from the
company’s Web site.
Forthcoming products from Gefen include the DVI-Hub, which can extend two DVI signals up to 100 feet from the computer; the DVI-Switch, a cross-platform switch that enables two DVI-equipped computers to access the same monitor; and the DVImate, a cable conversion product that switches the gender of DVI cables to add extension capability.
