The Gefen DisplayPorttm Super Booster Cable

The DisplayPort Super Booster Cable runs between your DisplayPort video source and your HD display in order to regenerate a DisplayPort signal over long distances without signal loss.

The DisplayPort Super Booster Cables are a copper cable based DisplayPort signal extension solution with an integrated Gefen DisplayPort Super Booster --available in lengths of 50, 75, and 100 feet. The DisplayPort Super Booster

cables offer the highest resolution possible at any desired length with support for all resolutions up to and including 3840x2400. Embedded multichannel digital audio is also supported by this cable and allows for the highest possible quality A/V experience.

How It Works

This plug and play installation takes mere seconds. Simply connect the smaller DisplayPort male cable end to your DisplayPort source and the larger DisplayPort Super Booster female end to the display’s cable or a small mating cable. A vibrant, beautiful HD picture emerges on the display. That’s all there is to it.

OPERATION NOTES

READ THESE NOTES BEFORE INSTALLING OR OPERATING THE DISPLAYPORT SUPER BOOSTER CABLE

In normal scenarios, the source supplies enough current to power the cable. If the necessary power is not present, the included 5V DC power supply may be used. Please see page 5 for more information.

The DisplayPort Super Booster Cable must be connected as instructed on page 5. The metal booster head (with female connector) should be located on the display side. The DisplayPort cable that connects the display to the unit should not exceed 15 feet to avoid signal degradation.

The DisplayPort Super Booster Cable is HDCP Compliant and also supports 128-bitDisplayPort Content Protection (DPCP).

CONNECTING THE DISPLAYPORT SUPER BOOSTER CABLE

How to Connect the DisplayPort Super Booster Cable

1.Connect the DisplayPort Super Booster Cable’s male end to the DisplayPort source. The male end has no lights or adjustment controls on it and is considerably smaller than the larger female end.

2.Connect the HD display to the large female end of the DisplayPort Super Booster Cable using a short user-suppliedDisplayPort cable. The female end of the DisplayPort Super Booster has the LED Power Indicator plainly visible on one side of the female DisplayPort connector.

3.Should it be necessary (see NOTE below), plug the power supply into the female end of the DisplayPort Super Booster Cable.

4.The Power Indicator LED will glow GREEN when a good link is established back to the DisplayPort source and RED when the connection to the source is interrupted or not present.

NOTE: In normal scenarios, the AV source device powers the cable. If sufficient power is not present, the Power Indicator LED will be OFF. In this situation the included 5V DC power supply can be connected to the Super Booster end of the cable (please see diagram below) to provide power.
