The unit includes a built-in 4-port USB 2.0 hub located on the Receiver unit, providing complete computer access control at the remote location.

*CAT-5 or 5e cable can be used to extend up to 150 feet (45 meters)at 1920 x 1200 @60Hz. CAT-5 cable is sufficient for USB link. Shielded cables are optional.

How It Works

Connect the host computer's DVI and USB ports to the Sender unit. Connect the remote display and computer peripherals to the Receiver unit. Two CAT-6a (or CAT-5e) cables (for the DVI and for the USB 2.0) extensions connect the Sender and the Receiver units together. Power up the units, and a crisp picture will appear on the display.

Note:  The Gefen CAT5•1600HD is HDCP compliant, enabling the viewing of protected content on the remote extended display.

The Gefen CAT5•1600HD supports digital DVI-D only, not analog DVI-A. Sources and connecting cables must be DVI-D compatible. USB 1.1 is also supported.
