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, 3 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.
DVI-Vision systems are available as CAT or Fiber variants. These differ by the used transmission cable between the CPU and CON module.
The signals are transmitted via copper cables. You can reach up to 140 m transmission length with this cable type.
Transmission bandwidth of the DVI-Vision-CAT = 1,25 Gbit/s
Big distances are bridgeable with fibre optics. The signals can be transmitted by multimode or singlemode fibers up to 10,000 m.
Transmission bandwidth of the DVI-Vision-Fiber = 3,125 Gbit/s
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.
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)
- Status image signal graphics card computer (available/not available)
- Status network
- Fan monitoring
- Status SFP modules (in -Fiber variants)
- Status interfaces (CPU and CON modules)
- Freeze status (all channels)
- Type of display (local and remote)
Easier access with SNMP tool Zabbix
For customers who are not yet using extensive SNMP tools, G&D offer a simple way to use the functions included in the devices. Templates for the open source tool Zabbix are provided here. The program lets users monitor SNMP-capable devices in a network and, among other things, issues warning notifications about critical device states, which have been received via SNMP trap.

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