    Purely digital for pure video
    Because the extender delivers full DVI digital video without compression or conversion, you get pure video displays with no loss of quality. The extender uses CAT7a cable to extend keyboard, mouse, and uncompressed single-link DVI-D video up to 196 feet (59.7 m) at full 1920 x 1200 at 60 Hz or 3840 x 2400 at 17 Hz resolution! It's ideal where you want to reduce environmental concerns, such as heat and noise, and ensure optimal temperature control.

    Go the distance
    You'll get different distances depending on what cable you use and if you make direct connections or patch panel connections.

    Direct cable connections:

    • CAT7a: 196 feet (59.7 m)
    • CAT6: 180 feet (54.8 m)
    • CAT5e: 147 feet (44.8 m)

    Patch Panel Connections:

    • CAT7a: 164 feet (50 m)
    • CAT6: 147 feet (44.8 m)
    • CAT5e: 114 feet (34.7 m)

    USB keyboard and mouse support
    The extender also delivers bi-directional USB data, enabling USB device extension over 196 feet (59.7 m) on the same CAT7a cable. This makes the extender ideal for distributed workstations where you want to reduce environmental concerns such as heat and noise, such as in post-production suites. The extender supports a variety of USB keyboards and mice and other human interface devices (HIDs) such as touchscreens.

    Extended profile DDC EDID
    The Wizard DVI/USB carries extended profile DDC EDID data from your display device to the display adapter to ensure that your system is configured to deliver optimal video performance. The extended profile DDC EDID is particularly important when extending the video to high-performance display devices. This is essential for professional graphics users such as post-production, broadcast, architecture, graphic design, medical imaging, CAD, or any other applications where display performance is critical.

    19" mounting
    You can mount up to 16 local or remote units in the Rackmount Chassis for ServSwitch Wizard Extender (ACU5000A).

    Interface-powered local unit
    The local unit of the Wizard SRX can be interface powered if your attached PC outputs do not exceed 500 mA. Otherwise, use the spare 5-VDC Power Supply (PS649-R3).
