How It Works


Connect the host computer's DVI and USB ports to the Sender unit. Connect the remote display and computer peripherals to the Receiver unit. Two CAT-6a (or CAT-5e) cables (for the DVI and for the USB 2.0) extensions connect the Sender and the Receiver units together. Power up the units, and a crisp picture will appear on the display.

Note:  The Gefen CAT51600HD is HDCP compliant, enabling the viewing of protected content on the remote extended display.

The Gefen CAT51600HD supports digital DVI-D only, not analog DVI-A. Sources and connecting cables must be DVI-D compatible. USB 1.1 is also supported.
