Overview

THIS PRODUCT HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED AND REPLACED BY THE EXT-DVI-148

Two DVI Inputs, Eight DVI Outputs

Two DVI Inputs, Eight DVI Outputs = Ideal for Presentation Venues

The 2:8 DVI Distribution Amplifier is an innovative solution for anyone with more complex video viewing requirements such as studios and presentation venues. It accommodates various system scenarios. Up to two video sources (either DVI-equipped computer, DVD player or satellite set top box) are connected to the distribution amplifier on one side. On the other side, eight video outputs are available to be used in part or in full. All displays are driven by one of two sources; each source drives eight displays at one time. Sources are switched via the RMT-2 remote control. The 2:8 DVI Distribution Amplifier is also equipped with an auto sensing feature that automatically switches to whatever source is active, should one of the sources drop out.

Fully HDCP Compliant

For home theater applications, the unit is HDCP (high bandwidth digital content protection) compliant, making it compatible with all HDTV content and displays. HDCP is a standard data encryption scheme encoded into the DVI signal to prevent videos from being copied. HDCP was adopted in 2004 by the entertainment industry. If an HDCP-encoded video source is connected to a HDTV display without the proper HDCP decoding mechanism, the picture is relegated to "snow" or a very low (480P) resolution. To avoid this situation the video source, the display and any device in between must be equipped with HDCP "software key" decoding devices.

 

How It Works

You just connect one or two DVI graphics sources to the 2:8 DVI DA's two inputs using the supplied DVI cables. Then you connect up to eight DVI displays to the eight DVI outputs on each unit. Power-cycle all connected equipment and you should see crystal-clear duplication of your source video on all output displays.


Note:  All connected displays that cannot show the same video resolution(s) as the Primary Display connected to Output #1 may fail to show a picture. Secondary displays follow the Primary display by sharing the resolution and capability information (EDID) obtained from the Primary Display.
