The 1 x 10 DVI Distribution Amplifier from RTcom USA delivers high-quality pictures preserving the native resolutions of the digital video source without any signal loss. At the same time, the digital noise that may affect the picture quality will be eliminated. Due to the nature of the digital signals and passing through multiple stages of connection when using distribution amplifiers, it is important to eliminate the digital noises and boost the signal strength to preserve / enhance the video signal quality.
The 12V power adapter supplies adequate power to amplify the video signals from the video source. This is necessary as the overall length from the video source to the displays is longer when using the distribution amplifier (distance from the video source to the distribution amplifier plus distance from the distribution amplifier to the display). In most cases, the overall distance that the DVI signal will need to travel is over 10’ (3.1m). Due to the nature of DVI signals, amplification is necessary to warrant the video quality and reliability. Without amplification, there may be occasional blackouts or blinking effects or digital noise. With this amplification feature, your video display can be extended up to 50’ (15.24m) using high-quality DVI copper cables.
The distributor amplifier has EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory) for storing your display EDID data and supports any of the VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) standard with maximum resolutions. You can select factory pre-programmed or the external EDID data. EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) is defined by a standard published by the VESA. It includes manufacturer name, product type, phosphor or filter type, timings supported by the display, display size, luminance data, and pixel mapping data (for digital displays only).
The DVI distribution amplifier is fully HDCP compliant. Many video sources such as DVD players and satellite/cable receivers are HDCP encrypted. For these video sources to be displayed correctly, HDCP compliant devices like TV / projector, set-top box, AV receiver, distribution amplifier, etc. are required.
