Gefen EXT-DVI-FM2500 overview

  • 1Description

The Gefen EXT-DVI-FM2500 Dual Link DVI FO Module Extender with Virtual EDID extends dual-link DVI up to 3,300’ (1,005.84m) to a display supporting resolutions up to 3840 x 2400 (WQXGA), using a two-strand 50/125μm laser-optimized multimode (OM3) LC-terminated fiber optic cable (sold separately). Optical signal transmission provides galvanic isolation and immunity to electromagnetic interference compared to similar copper-based extension modules.

The Virtual EDID feature programs the display EDID into the Sender module to ensure fast integration and compatibility between the source and the display.

The attractive and compact Sender and Receiver modules fit neatly behind the equipment for a clean installation, making it a great way to extend dual-link DVI.

Note: The fiber optics cable is susceptible to dust, which can contribute to loss of pixels.
The Sender module does not need to be powered externally unless the source does not supply enough power through the DVI connector.

Supports resolutions up to 3840 x 2400 (dual-link DVI)
Virtual EDID allows EDID copying from the display to the source
Fiber optic transmission eliminates electromagnetic interference (EMI)
Sturdy metal die-cast enclosures are perfect for professional and industrial applications
Compact Sender and Receiver modules provide a clean, easy installation
Supports DDWG standard for DVI monitors.
Suitable for use with Gefen CAB-2LC-xxx OM1 Fiber Optic Link Cables for distances from 30 to 330' (9.14 to 100.58m)
FCC and CE compliant for EMI/RFI emission

    Gefen EXT-DVI-FM2500 reviews

    EXT-DVI-FM2500 Dual Link DVI FO Module Extender with Virtual EDID is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, no issues so far. In production for about a week now, no real issues. We're running without EDID so there wasn't any need to program these, I can't speak to that functionality, but as a straight fibre extender they work well.
