OVERVIEW

The CrystalView Exact extends Ultra HD DisplayPort 1.2a video along with USB 3.1, 2.0, and 1.1 up to 330 feet (100 meters) over a single Cat6a/7 cable. Two-channel audio embedded in DisplayPort, Ethernet pass-through, and bidirectional RS232 are also transported.

This point-to-point extension system consists of two parts with a transmitter extender unit located near a host computer and a remote receiver extender unit near a display and USB peripherals. All signals are aggregated and transmitted between the transmitter and receiver units over a single CAT6a/7 cable. A minimum grade of Category 6a cable is required.

Image quality is remarkable with DisplayPort 1.2a delivering visually lossless 4K60 video resolution with YCbCr 4:4:4 and color support up to 10 bits per channel. The receiver unit includes four USB ports, each supplying 1.2A (6W) of power. Directly connect USB devices simultaneously at full bandwidth or attach self-powered USB hubs to expand the USB port count up to 30. The Ethernet pass-through channel allows remote connection of network-enabled devices. The RS232 channel can be utilized for RS232 enabled devices or for command and control applications.

Installation of the CrystalView Exact extension system is simple with plug-and-play setup, and it's compatible with all major computer operating systems. Software drivers are not required.

The CrystalView Exact is an industrial-grade product built with aluminum enclosures and locking power connectors. Common applications include industrial control/HMI, video production, ProAV, medical imaging, conference rooms, and interactive digital signage.
