How It Works
The DVI-1500HDS Sender unit sits next to your computer, set-top box or DVD player source. The cable supplied with the DVI-1500HD connects your DVI source to the Sender unit. The DVI-1500HDR Receiver unit sits next to your DVI display - up to 1650 feet (330 feet with HDCP) away. The display plugs into the back of the DVI-1500HDR Receiver unit. One CAT-5 cable and a multi mode LC-LC fiber optic cable (4 strand) connect the DVI-1500HDS and the DVI-1500HDR units to each other.
Note: The DVI-1500HD is HDCP Compliant
