Dual-Link DVI fiber extender


Part No: 9151 0007 (TX200), 9151 0008 (RX100) 

Highlight features

  • Extend Dual-Link DVI signals over fiber
  • Built-in Advanced EDID Management
  • Local monitor Output on transmitter
  • USB control
  • TMDS Reclocking


Designed for rental and professional use, the Lightware DVIDL-OPT-TX200 and DVIDL-OPT-RX100 extender pair can transmit Dual-Link DVI signals over two multimode fiber cables for up to 2500 meters distance. Neutrik OpticalCON DUO connectors ensure reliable operation which are also compatible with industry standard LC Duplex
fiber cables.

Dual-Link signal transmission supports '120 Hz' 3D signals.In this application the 3D picture is transmitted
through a Dual-Link DVI interface.

DVI Single-Link transmission is available as well with only one optical fibre. In Single-Link operation the transmitter and the receiver are fully compatible with Single-Link Lightware optical products.

Galvanic isolation between source and display helps to avoid ground loops and hum effects. No delay occurs in the signal during optical conversion, the video image is transported without any frame latency. This feature is crucial in 3D applications and systems where audio is processed separately.

Cross compatibility between Lightware optical products is ensured thanks to our attentive design. IThe DVIDL-OPT-TX200 and DVIDL-OPT-RX100 can work together easily in a standalone application, however with our hybrid modular matrix concept, it is possible to connect these extender boxes directly to the matrix router using an MX-DVIDL-OPT series input or output board.

Advanced EDID Management with USB control: using this unique feature there is no need to negotiate EDID information between the source and remote display. The DVIDL-OPT-TX200 transmitter stores up to 99 different EDID versions in it’s non volatile memory and keeps the selected one continuously fixed on it’s Dual-Link input available for the source computer. According to the user’s setting any special pixel resolution can be created and emulated via Lightware’s Advanced EDID Creatorsoftware.
