DVI Gear Turns 25 at InfoComm 2024; Launches DisplayNet DN-300

DVIGear 25

Founded in 1999 by rAVe founder Gary Kayye, DVIGear is celebrating its 25th anniversary at InfoComm 2024. At the show, DVIGear will launch a host of new products, which will be on display in booth C8121.

DVIGear says it is launching two new DisplayNet models at InfoComm: the DN-300H and DN-300T. Both models are compatible with the  DN-300 and utilize the latest SDVoE technology, which provides “flawless” HDMI video distribution with limitless scalability, zero-frame latency and zero image artifacts, according to the company.

The company says DisplayNet’s DN-300H SDVoE Transmitter/Receiver supports USB HID device extension and routing with instant switching. Unlike other conventional KVM solutions, DVIGear says the unit provides innovative software-defined KVM functionality and multi-screen KVM support, plus features including hotkey routing and system control.

DVIGear says the DN-300T SDVoE Transceiver provides the same robust feature set as the original DN-300 model with the addition of a full duplex transceiver mode that can simultaneously send and receive AV-over-IP data. The company says this mode greatly enhances the versatility of the unit and allows for some AV-over-IP systems to be implemented with half the number of DisplayNet endpoints, thus enabling significant cost savings.

DVIGear says it will also launch two new 4K /60p (4:4:4) professional-grade optical extenders at InfoComm. The DVI-7318 4K HDMI Fiber Optic Extender supports HDMI 2.0 source signals. It provides fully uncompressed optical extension using a single strand of Multi-Mode optical fiber at distances of up to 300 meters (984 ft.). This compact unit is enclosed in a rugged die-cast metal case with wire tie fixation points for easy mounting. The unit can store the EDID from any connected display or operate in an EDID passthrough mode for applications that require HDCP support.

The company says the DVI-7346 12G-SDI Fiber Optic Extender is an ultra-compact, high-performance fiber optic extender that supports SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, and 12G-SDI signal extension over a single strand of Single-Mode optical fiber at distances up to 6.2 miles (~10 km). These units utilize low-profile metal cases with rugged locking optical and BNC SDI connectors. The locking ST fiber connectors are supplied with twist-locking metal covers to prevent dust buildup inside the fiber optic connectors. The optical fiber transmission is immune to environmental signal noise and has a low RFI/EMI profile for sensitive applications.

With “value-driven” price points, DVIGear says these features make both units the perfect solution for 4K /60p signal extension over long cable distances in even the most demanding broadcast, production and live events environments.
