Availability: Usually ships the next business day

Superior Performance — Designed to overcome the limitations of sending digital DVI and HDMI signals over copper wires, DVIGearís fiber optic cables provide unmatched signal fidelity and transparency over a wide range of input resolutions with lengths up to 100 meters (328 ft.).  These cables utilize high-speed electro-optical converters integrated within each connector.  The transmitter module converts the electrical signals from a DVI or HDMI source device to optical pulses that are transported over the fiber optic cable to the receiver.  The receiver module converts the optical pulses back to the original DVI or HDMI signal for display on a monitor or large screen projector.

Rugged Construction — The cable material utilizes an innovative hybrid design that includes 4x glass optical fibers and 6x copper wires.  This approach provides a high degree of ruggedness and flexibility.  The transmitter and receiver modules use locking DVI connectors and are shielded in high-impact, metal alloy enclosures that provide maximum strength and durability.

Advanced Design — These cables are designed for use in mission critical applications where image quality and dependability are paramount.  The video signals are transmitted over four optical fibers, which make them immune to interference from environmental noise sources.  The optical transmission path provides a very low RFI / EMI profile, which allows the cables to be installed in sensitive applications with strict electromagnetic requirements.  In many applications, the cables may draw power from the connected source, eliminating the need for an external power supply.  These features make these cables ideally suited for critical display applications that require long DVI or HDMI cable runs with flawless image quality.
