RGB Spectrum's XtendView DVI-over-Fiber Extender

RGB Spectrum’s new XtendView® DVI-over-Fiber extenders are a compact signal extender solution that transmits data up to 1300 feet (400m) over a single strand of fiber optic cable.

The XtendView system consists of transmit (TX) and receive (RX) plug-in endpoints fitted with industry standard SC jacks for easy connection of fiber cables. The endpoints' innovative "all-in-the-headshell" system uses miniaturized electronics that fit entirely within the DVI connector housing, eliminating the need for external boxes and cables and greatly simplifying installation. XtendView TX/RX endpoints are compatible with all RGB Spectrum wall processors, multiviewers, switchers, and AV devices from other manufacturers.

XtendView endpoints feature an integrated data channel that supports real-time EDID pass-through and HDCP. EDID and HDCP data are combined with the video, so only a single fiber is required. XtendView endpoints also support embedded audio in HDMI signals.

For further convenience and installation ease, XtendView TX endpoints may be powered externally or through pin power.

Fiber optic cable is ideal for transmitting DVI signals over moderate to long distances because it is lightweight, secure, and immune to EMF and RFI interference. Different cable types, such as plenum-rated and armored, are widely available for special security requirements. Fiber is the preferred solution for mission-critical applications that require the highest level of security.

XtendView DVI-over-Fiber extenders are a high performance, elegant, and cost effective solution for signal distribution, for both small-scale and large-scale installations.
