Gefen Extends 1080p Displays Up to 300 Feet

The newest component video extender from Gefen enables DVD players, DBS STBs, or any video devices equipped with RGB connectors to be extended up to the length of an American football field, 300 feet, from the source display using a single CAT-5 cable. The extender is now applicable to the emerging 1080p format, as well.

System hardware includes tiny sender and receiver units that are small enough to be hidden behind displays of all sizes. The tiny units are painted black to blend with system aesthetics and run on a single power supply, the company said in a statement.

The sender and receiver components are equipped with VGA (video graphics array) and CAT-5 ports. A six-foot long VGA to RGB cable is included for component connections.
