This DVI broadcaster extends your DVI-D and audio signal over Cat5/5e/6 and 4-wire phone cable. If you are using short range receiver (ADE-8001) to receive the DVI-D signal, the extended distance is up to 15m with 1024x768 resolution; and if using long range receiver (ADE-8002), the extended DVI-D distance can reach the distance up to 70m with 1024x768 resolution. You can use the audio receiver to extend audio over 4-wire phone cable to provide a multimedia broadcasting. Take the advantage of Cat5/5e/6 cable, LevelOne DVI broadcaster series can simplify the installation, extend the AV signal, and centralize the multimedia server. Many nice features have been designed into these units, the single-port transmitter (ADE-8201) is the smallest one in the world and can connect to DVI port without using another DVI cable. For single port receiver (ADE-8002), you can fix the unit very easily through its magnetic pad and metal plate. The multi-port unit (ADE-8202/8204/8208) is the first multi-port DVI extender over Cat5/5e/6, it allows you to extend DVI signals with reasonable cost and easy installation. LevelOne DVI broadcaster series is the perfect solution for malls, plazas, stations and supermarkets to display high resolution and crystallized images.

Plug power adaptor to ADE-8002, the orange LED above RJ-45 should be ON to indicate the power on status. The other LED should turn off, since B. C. there is no input of video signal from “LINK IN” port. The “Auto” led in the front panel will turn ON as the EQ/FOCUS control switch to the left end and the EQ/FOCUS will stay on AUTO, this will not function until the receiver received video signal from “LINK IN” port. Connect DVI monitor’s DVI cable to the receiver. Connect ADE-8002 to DVI Monitor by DVI Cable (5) Selection of Cat5/5e/6 cable: You may use most of current Cat5/5e/6 cables, and since the quality varies, we do encounter some cables not perform well, even it is expensive. Therefore, please test your current cables before you install the devices on the site. For some environment need to prevent potential interference, the FTP type cable is recommended. The connector must be made by 568B-568B type. The EIA/TIA definition of 568B in the pin assignment is (1)orange white, (2)orange, (3)green white, (4)blue, (5)blue white, (6)green, (7)brown white, and (8)brown. (6) Connect Cat5/5e/6 cable: Plug two ends of cable to Transmitter and Receiver’s RJ-45 port, the monitor connected to the Receiver should display now and the green LED above ADE-8002’s RJ-45 port should be ON to reflect the DVI signal activation. For ADE-8002, you can manually adjust the EQ/FOCUS to have the best display quality. The displayed DVI resolution will also relate to the distance been extended, it will be better to test prior actual installation and should not exceed the suggested frequency and corresponding distance. Connection of Single-Port DVI-D Extender (7) Extends Audio Signal: There is no audio function on ADE-8201, so you need to use a pair of ADE-8011 to extend the audio and the cable using is 4-wire phone cable and two ends of the cable should be made by straight RJ-11 connector. ADE-8011 ADE-8201 ADE-8011 Extended Connection of DVI-D with Audio 2. Install Multi-Port Transmitter: (1) The 2/4/8-port model will all act the same except they have different amount of outputs. (2) First Time Set-up: Please turn off the DVI output device (PC or DVD Player) and monitors. (3) Connect local DVI monitor and speaker to the “DVI/AUDIO OUT” of the transmitter and plug one end of DVI/Audio cable to “DVI/Audio IN” port of transmitter and the other end of the cable to the output device’s DVI and speaker ports. (4) Connect power adaptor. (5) Turn on your DVI output device and monitor to confirm the function of display. The “Local Monitor” LED of the transmitter should turn orange to reflect the connection of a local DVI monitor and the “ACTIVE” LED should turn blue to indicate an activated DVI-D signal. (6) The transmitter has built in an EDID simulator, when you connect local DVI monitor, the transmitter will automatically record the EDID from DVI monitor. When the local DVI monitor is not connected, the transmitter will simulate the EDID communication like a regular monitor and activate the DVI signal of PC.
