DVI-D Dual Link Extension Cable Male/Female, Gold Plated - 6 Feet It doesn’t matter whether you’re stringing Christmas lights or connecting a home appliance, there’s little in life that’s more frustrating than being on a ladder or stuck behind a cabinet and needing just “one more” extension cord. We do know one thing that’s more frustrating, though: hooking up equipment which needs a specialized cable, and discovering that the specialized cable you have is just a bit too short. The extra frustration stems from the fact that you usually can’t just reach into a drawer or run into the garage for an extension cable, the way you can for another AC power cord. For that reason, even if you don’t need our Cmple DVI-D dual link extension cable right this minute - you still need one. DVI-D cables (the funny-looking ones used to connect your computer or high-definition television to your computer’s flat screen monitor) are becoming required accessories for the modern home or office. And trust us, the day will come when the DVI cable you’ve got just isn’t quite long enough, especially when you decide to connect your HDTV to your computer across the room so you can watch a movie. Here’s an important tip, though: DVI-D cables and DVI dual link cables aren’t the same. Dual link cables are much more versatile because they’re able to handle video at higher resolutions and more bandwidth, but they also have more pins than regular DVI-D cables. Most modern TVs, computers and monitors will accommodate dual link DVI, but be sure you’re getting the right cable. Having said that, this Cmple product is the “right cable” when you need a DVI-D dual link extension. It’s engineered for the ultimate in signal delivery, completely compliant with the latest DVI standards, triple shielded and built with ferrite cores to prevent signal loss and interference.
