New CAT5-5000 HD from Gefen released
Connectivity solutions provider Gefen has announced the release of its CAT5-5000 HD, a KVM extender capable of spanning distances up to 150 feet.
The CAT5-5000 HD utilises a new chip technology capable of sending DVI digital video plus USB and optional digital audio signals over CAT-5 cables, offering an alternative to some of the costs associated with DVI copper and fibre optics cabling.
The extender works through a sender unit connected to the computer and a receiver unit connected to the extended peripherals; CAT-5 cables link the sender to the receiver.
The slim, rackmountable units come equipped with two DVI connectors that support the extension of two digital displays. USB is provided for a keyboard/mouse connection, but could be used for any USB device. Optional digital audio support is offered for SPDIF or optical signal extension over CAT-5 cable, high resolutions up to 1920x1200 are supported and a five-volt power supply feeds the system.
The CAT5-5000 HD is often used to isolate computer fan noise in sound sensitive postproduction facilities, and enables computer equipment to be centralised in safe, temperature-controlled environments.
