            We used this to extend a DVI signal from our PLS 300 Analog Way switcher to two Panasonic 7K Projectors. Image was crisp and clear. Super easy to use!

                Comments about Gefen EXT-DVI-1CAT6 DVI Over CAT6 Extender:

                This thing seemed to work great, until we got to the install. Ran a 150' Cat-6A cable, made by Gefen, and explicitly recommended by Gefen tech support for this box. Signal drops out all the time, extremely sensitive to EMI, and basically worthless in a pro install.

                Save yourself some time and headache and buy the Extron DTP DVI 330 instead. It's totally reliable, and only requires a power supply at one end, instead of both, so you can plug the supply in at the input or at the output.

                We rented out a theater that did not have a DVI connection to the front of the room. We purchased this product to run a 100ft Cat 6E cable back to the projector. When we tried it out back in the office with our cheaper projector, there was lots of flashing horizontal lines that we could not get rid of (we tried each pot setting). However, once we hooked it up to the high end projector in the theater the lines went away. Overall this product worked well for us, but YMMV.

                  This is a great small box that can send out great quality DVI via CAT6 cable. I purchased a dozen of them and I used in medical field for view Echo images on big LCD TV for trainning. It didn't lose quality for my distance (100"). Originally I had issue with the signal but the support were so professional and solve the issue.
