Gefen announce new CAT-5 cable technology

A revolutionary new method of high definition video extension from Gefen transmits audio and video data up to 150-feet over CAT-5 cable.
Never before could CAT-5 cables carry the large amounts of data required for HD clarity and precision. But new chip technologies combined with skilful engineering has created a method of packaging data that can be transmitted successfully using industry-standard CAT-5E cables.
Multiple resolutions up to 1080i and multi-channel digital audio are effective at distances up to 150-feet, making the HDTV Extender over CAT-5 cable an economical alternative to fibre optics or copper cables for medium length installations. It is highly advantageous when upgrading audio/video systems from analogue to digital because cabling does not have to be replaced.
The HDTV Extender is available in two models that work with HD's two most popular interfaces: DVI (digital visual interface) and HDMI (high definition multimedia interface). DVI, often the preferred format for professional a/v applications, transmits high resolution, uncompressed digital video data from source to display. HDMI, geared towards the consumer market, transmits high resolution, uncompressed digital video and multichannel digital audio from source to display. When used with computer-based systems, DDC control signals are sent in addition to HDTV video on their own dedicated CAT-5 cable.
