DVI Extender via Multimode Fiber Optic Cable

Extend a single link digital DVI display up to 3,280 feet (1,000 meters).

The XTENDEX® ST-FODVI-LC DVI Extender via Multimode Fiber Optic Cable locates a single link digital DVI display up to 3,280 feet (1,000 meters) away from a computer using fiber optic cable.  Each extender consists of a transmitter that connects to a computer and a receiver that connects to a monitor.


  • Signal transmission via four strand multimode LC fiber optic cable – no RF interference.
  • EDID learning for the support of any DVI display device.
  • Supports computer resolutions to 1920×1200.
  • Small form factor – allowing for easy connection and placement.
  • Cables can be installed in conduit prior to extender installation.
  • No software to install.
  • RGB and Clock signals are transmitted separately by multimode optical fiber.

The DVI Optical Extender is the ideal solution for a wide range of applications. Examples include:

  • Remote DVI display monitoring for medical, military, aerospace, industrial and traffic control applications.
