At InfoComm 2016 in Las Vegas, DVIGear will be demonstrating DisplayNet, an award-winning new concept for AV distribution that leverages proven 10GbE Ethernet technology to switch, extend and distribute uncompressed AV signals in real time with resolutions up to 4K (UHD). DisplayNet provides unmatched image quality with zero frame latency, zero compression and zero artifacts.

DisplayNet delivers unprecedented levels of scalability, versatility and reliability and supports a wide range of applications including point-to-point Extension, limitless Matrix Switching, Video Wall Display and MultiViewer.  DisplayNet isn’t just new technology; it’s a new paradigm for AV system integration.  Welcome to the future.

At InfoComm 2016, DVIGear is also exhibiting a complete range of 4K video distribution solutions such as switcher/scalers, long-reach copper cables, CAT-X twisted pair extenders, fiber optic extenders, and fiber optic cables.  These products are all designed and built to overcome the challenges of transporting signals at the high data rates required by 4K video.  The following three new products are featured among those at the show.

DVIGear is introducing new advanced DisplayPort v1.2 Active Optical Cables (AOC) that can extend DisplayPort v1.2 signals with ultra-high resolutions up to 4K /60p (4:4:4) with cable lengths up to 100 meters (328 feet). These cables employ an advanced low-power design that enables them to be powered solely by the DisplayPort source. These cables are very lightweight, highly flexible, Plenum Rated (UL OFNP) and reasonably priced, which makes them the ideal solution for integrators looking to extend DisplayPort signals through conduits or plenum air spaces.  These cables will start shipping in August 2016.
