The ADDERLink X-DVI PRO is Adder's second generation DVI extender to transmit both full DVI video as well as USB over a single CATx cable.

The ADDERLink X-DVI PRO allows users to distribute control of any computer which uses DVI video and USB. The X-DVIPRO can deliver perfect 1080p digital video at distances over 50 meters and resolutions up to 165 MPixels per second (e.g. 1920x1200 @ 60Hz or 3840 x 2400 @ 17Hz).

In operation, the X-DVIPRO is truly plug and play, delivering full EDID data from computer to screen ensuring your hardware is always setup to deliver optimal display performance.        


Full single link DVI extender

        The ADDERLink X-DVI PRO extender is designed to deliver full single link DVI digital video resolutions up to 165 MPixels per second. 165MPixels per second is the maximum data rate available on single link DVI connections, and is achieved without the need to compress data in any way. Resolutions supported by single link DVI range from 640 x 480 @  60 Hz (25 MPixels/s) through to 3840 x 2400 @ 17Hz (164 MPixels/s).     

USB transparent connection

        Alongside fully un-compressed DVI video, the ADDERLink X-DVI PRO  also delivers bidirectional USB (low speed / full speed) data allowing you to extend any USB device over 50 meters on the same CATx cable.     

This makes the X-DVI PRO perfect for distributed workstations  where you want to reduce environmental concerns such as heat and noise.  A typical example of this would be post production suites.  By centralizing your workstations, you can also extend operational life-span by ensuring optimal temperature control, and minimal physical disturbance.       

Single CATx distribution

        ADDERLink X-DVI PRO requires just one CATx (CAT7a recommended) cable. Other solutions available require two cables to carry DVI and DDC  EDID. The X-DVIPRO delivers this alongside USB data over a single CATx cable. Dependent upon cable type, quality and connections distances may vary. See technical specification for detailed rules.     

DVI-D digital video

        The ADDERLink X-DVI PRO is specifically designed to carry digital video over 50 meters. By maintaining the video in a purely digital domain, no loss of quality through D/A or A/D conversion will be experienced, ensuring the display output  (LCD panel for example) is exactly the same as the signal produced by the display adapter (video card).

Extended profile DDC EDID

        The ADDERLink X-DVI PRO 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 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.

Hardware compatibility

All computers with DVI-D, USB and audio - requirement dependent.

DVI-D Interface – digital only

Important extension distance details

Recommended cables are CAT7 shielded foiled twisted pairs:

Daetwyler 7702 Flexible patch cable 

Daetwyler 7120 Bulk cable

Category 5 (or better) shielded twisted pair cable must be used to connect the local and remote units in order to maintain compliance with radio frequency energy emission regulations and ensure a suitably high level of immunity to electromagnetic disturbances.

Scheme Resolution Cable
WUXGA 1920x1200 CAT7 50 metres
WUXGA 1920x1200 CAT6a 50 metres
UXGA 1600x1200 CAT5e 50 metres
WUXGA 1920x1200 CAT7 40 metres

Note: Distances are achieved using single lengths of trunk/bulk cable. For each break/patch connection, reduce distance by 5m. Preferably patch cables should be of type CAT7a and less than 2m. Patch cables over 2m must be CAT7a. CAT5e is not recommended for use with this system. The maximum extension distance for USB is 50m including connections to and from the X-DVI PRO independent of cable type. If a USB hub is connected to the RX unit, this is seen as 5m of cable length. This needs to be taken into consideration when planning your system.
