KVM peripheral maker
on Tuesday announced the ex-tend-it ADC Extender, a cable-only solution suitable for moving ADC-based displays up to 32 feet away from their computers. Apple Display Connector, or ADC, is the all-in-one interface that Apple’s own displays (and certain Formac models) use to connect to Power Mac G4s.
Unlike certain other peripherals from Gefen and other manufacturers, the ADC Extender eschews metal hardware boxes and relies on an active circuit cable to transmit power, display data and USB signals to the Apple Cinema Display. It requires no additional power supply or hardware to operate.
Each individual ADC Extender measures 16 feet, and up to two can be used simultaneously, for up to 32 feet of distance.
The ADC Extender is available through Gefen’s Web site or through its line of dealers. The peripheral carries a suggested retail price of US$249.
