Gefen offers extension for DVI and audio devices

Extending DVI equipped HD displays up to 150 feet over category-5 cables is easily achieved these days, but extending sound to accompany the HD video can be an issue.
Not anymore. Gefen announced its DVI Audio Extender designed to support the extension of both analog and digital audio formats in addition to HD video.
The compact sender and receiver units come equipped with S/PDIF (digital coax), optical TOSlink and left/right analog RCA audio inputs and outputs that drive multiple audio devices at the same time.
Combined with its DVI input/output, the Gefen DVI Audio Extender supplies a plug and play method of extending HDTV visuals up to 1080p (1920x1200) along with multichannel stereo audio in the same device.
Data is transferred instantaneously, with an average speed of 12.8 Mb/s, allowing the user to immerse him or herself in rich, robust audio and pure digital imagery as if connected locally.
With a suggested retail value of $649 (US), the package includes six-foot DVI and audio RCA cables in addition to two external power supplies (one on each end) and the sender/receiver units.
Gefen’s DVI Audio Extender (EXT-DVI-AUDIO-CAT5) is available worldwide through a Gefen authorised reseller.
