DP1.2-Vision - transmission of DisplayPort 1.2 signals via CAT or fibre optics

The system consists of a computer module (transmitter) and a user module (receiver) and enables you to operate a computer on a local or remote console.

DP1.2-Vision uses CAT-x cables or fibre optics to transmit signals up to 10,000 m. The devices use DisplayPort 1.2 video and are available as single and multi channel variant (in preparation). It is also possible to transmit transparent USB 2.0, RS232 and audio signals.

With its network port, the web interface and monitoring functions, the DP1.2-Vision system offers important features for mission-critical applications.


DP1.2-Vision systems are available as CAT or Fiber variants. These differ by the used transmission cable between the sender and receiver module.

CAT-x cable

The signals are transmitted via copper cables. You can reach up to 140 m transmission length with this cable type.
These variants have a transmission bandwith up to 1Gbit/s.

Fiber optics

Big distances are bridgeable with fibre optics. The signals can be transmitted by multimode or singlemode fibers up to 10,000 m. These variants have a transmission bandwith up to 3,125Gbit/s

Product details



With the Monitoring function, you can auto-output device status messages to Syslog servers or via SNMP. The web interface lets you monitor the device manually. The Monitoring function of the DP1.2-Vision queries the following values:

  • Proactive monitoring of device states
  • Event reporting function (Syslog or SNMP traps)
  • Status power supply unit (on/off)
  • Status temperature threshold device (in/over limit)
  • Status connection cables (ok/nok)
  • Status computer (on/off)
  • Status image signal graphics card computer (available/not available)
  • Status network
  • Fan monitoring
  • Status SFP modules (in fiber variants)
  • Status interfaces (CPU and CON modules)
  • Freeze status (all channels)
  • Type of display (local and remote)

Screen-Freeze Function

If the console module loses the video signal due to a broken connection or a problem with the computer's graphics card, the Screen-Freeze function "freezes" the last displayed image of the monitor. This state is highlighted by a red semi-transparent frame. The function is automatically cancelled when the display receives an active video signal again.

The Installation

Link the computer to the back of the DP1.2-Vision transmitter. Distinctive cables connect the computer's keyboard, video, mouse, audio, RS232, and USB interfaces to the DP1.2-Vision computer module.

Installing the user console is just as easy: simply connect the operating hardware with the corresponding interfaces of the DP1.2-Vision receiver.

Use the existing cabling structure to link transmitter and receiver.

Embedding extenders in digital matrix systems

To be prepared for growing installations, the integrated matrix support turns the DP1.2-Vision into a future-proof investment.

This way, it is possible to include extenders into digital G&D matrix systems. Thus, users benefit from more flexibility through distributed access.
