This compact module allows you to place your high resolution video display and peripherals at a greater distance from your system. This module is totally transparent in operation, leaving you free to use your computer as though you're still sitting next to it. It provides two operational modes so that you can choose your priority: to support a higher resolution display or to cover a greater distance. A simple switch setting on the local module determines the required mode. When the high rate mode is enabled, the DVI/USB Extender system will continually monitor the data link to ensure that image quality is being maintained. If the data link is not sufficient, the local module will automatically fall back to the long reach mode.
