DVI-Vision - transmission of DVI signals via CAT or fibre optics

The system consists of a computer module (transmitter) and a user module (receiver) and enables you to operate a computer on a local or remote console.

DVI-Vision uses CAT-x cables or fibre optics to transmit signals up to 10,000 m. The devices use DVI video and are available as variants displaying 1, 2 or 4 video channels. It is also possible to transmit transparent USB 2.0, RS232 and audio signals.

With its network port, the web interface and monitoring functions, the DVI-Vision system offers important features for mission-critical applications.

Transmission

DVI-Vision systems are available as CAT or Fiber variants. These differ by the used transmission cable between the CPU and CON module.

CAT-x cable

The signals are transmitted via copper cables. You can reach up to 140 m transmission length with this cable type.

Transmission bandwith of the DVI-Vision-CAT = 1,25 Gbit/s

Fibre optics

Big distances are bridgeable with fibre optics. The signals can be transmitted by multimode or singlemode fibers up to 10,000 m.

Transmission bandwith of the DVI-Vision-Fiber = 3,125 Gbit/s

Product details

Screen-Freeze Function 

If the console module loses the video signal due to a broken connection or a problem with the computer's graphics card, the Screen-Freeze function "freezes" the last displayed image of the monitor. This state is highlighted by a red semi-transparent frame. The function is automatically cancelled when the display receives an active video signal.

Monitoring

With the Monitoring function, you can auto-output device status messages to Syslog servers or SNMP. The web interface lets you monitor the device manually. The Monitoring function of the DVI-Vision queries the following values:

  • Proactive monitoring of device states
  • Event reporting function (Syslog or SNMP traps)
  • Status power supply unit (on/off)
  • Status temperature threshold device (in/over limit)
  • Status connection cables (ok/nok)
  • Status computer (on/off)

  • Shipped as desktop variant (Twin devices and sets for rack- or tablemounting are seperately available)

System update

  • Over the config panel

Video channels

  • Single-channel
  • Multi-channel 2
  • Multi-channel 4

USB transmission

  • "U" variants: integrated USB 2.0 transmission without an additional transmission cable. This variant offers transfer speed up to 16 Mbit/s.
  • "U2" variants: USB 2.0 transmission with an additional cable. This solution reaches the HiSpeed transfer rate of 480 Mbit/s.

Transmission medium

  • DVI-Vision-CAT variants: transmission via CAT-x cables
  • DVI-Vision-Fiber variants: transmission via multimode or singlemode fiber optics

Communication with KVM-NetworkCenter

DVI-Vision uses the network to communicate with the appliance KVM-NetworkCenter. When employing more than one DL-Vision, you can query and configure the devices by using the KVM-NetworkCenter.

The Installation

Link the computer to the back of the DVI-Vision transmitter. Distinctive cables connect the computer's keyboard, video, mouse, audio, RS232, and USB interfaces to the DVIVision computer module.

Installing the user console is just as easy: simply connect the operating hardware with the corresponding interfaces of the DVI-Vision receiver.

Use the existing cabling structure to link transmitter and receiver.

Embedding extenders in digital matrix systems

To be prepared for growing installations, the integrated matrix support turns the DVI-Vision into a future-proof investment.

This way, it is possible to include extenders at a later point into one of the digital G&D matrix systems within an existing installation. Thus, users benefit from more flexibility through distributed access - and any existing components can still be used as before.
