Chapter 2: Overview

2. Overview

Thank you for choosing the ServSwitch Wizard DVI/USB SRX extenders. These compact modules present the quickest way to extend high quality DVI digital video plus USB keyboard and mouse (plus on dual variants, a second digital video channel and two stereo audio channels) with an additional 2 USB peripherals up to 196 feet (60 meters) away from your computer.

Thanks to our long involvement and investment in extender technology we have succeeded in overcoming the numerous problems associated with extending digital video signals. Using our proprietary transmission techniques the ServSwitch Wizard DVI/ USB SRX (and dual) modules can reliably transfer video rates up to 165 Mpixels per second. This is in addition to two USB channels for keyboard and mouse - all via the same single length of Category 5e, 6 or 7a twisted pair cabling.

The ServSwitch Wizard DVI/USB SRX extenders have been designed to be quick to install and totally transparent in operation.

Cable distance rules

Extension distances up to 196 feet (60 m) are supported.

Extensions of 196 feet (60 m) may be achieved with uninterrupted runs of recommended cable (Black Box CAT7a patch cable) at full resolution.

Extensions of 180 feet (55 m) may be achieved with uninterrupted runs of CAT6 bulk/trunk

(not patch) cable at full resolution.

The overall cable run(s) must be reduced by 16 feet

(5 m) for each additional cable coupling.

Black Box does not recommend CAT5e cables for use with this product. However, 147 feet (45 m) may be typically achieved with uninterrupted runs of CAT5e bulk/trunk (not patch) cable at full resolution.

The run specification may be increases by 32 feet (10 m) when using resolutions of 1280 x 1024 or lower.

All patch cables should be as short as possible and should be no longer than 6.6 feet (2 m).

It is recommended that Black Box CAT7a patch cables are used for maximum performance.
