The CATX Displayport Computer Access Modules are highly compact devices that allow you to extend your DisplayPort equipped computer over CATX cable up to 300 meters.
The CAM connects to the DisplayPort video connector plus USB and Audio ports on your computer and then connects via CAT 5, 5e or 6 cabling to the AdderView CATx KVM switches and/or Adder extender receivers (either AdderLink X100 or X200), each of which can be located up to 300 meters from the module. Your video display, keyboard, mice and speakers are then all linked to the remote device.
Resolutions and Cable Lengths
The maximum resolutions achievable are:
1920 x 1200 x 60Hz at 200m
1280 x 1024 x 60Hz at 300m.
The CATX DisplayPort CAM uses the USB port to derive its power from the host computer, dispensing with the need for a separate power supply and thus simplifying installation. Therefore the USB cable must always be connected to a USB port on the computer that is capable of providing up to 500mA. Power is not taken from the DisplayPort connector
Mini DisplayPort version available
Some computers, servers and graphics cards (Apple Mac Pro and ATI Radion graphics cards) come with mini DisplayPort connectors as these are smaller than the standard connector. A version of the CAM is available with Mini DisplayPort connectors.
EDID Display Information
The module will check during power up the EDID information available from the KVM switch or extender that is connected to the monitor and passes this back to the computer.
The CAM supports low speed (1Mb/s) HID USB devices only.
2 Channel CD Quality audio is supported via a 3.5mm jack plug. Audio is not available through the display port connector.
