With the increasing usage of DVI-type signals in AV installations, there is a need for a low-cost and easy-to-use DVI signal detector. A DVI signal is transmitted at bit rates exceeding 1.2Gb/s. A special cable is required to transmit these signals long distances and to minimize losses; in many cases the signal can be transmitted only 10-15 ft (3 - 5m). Since many runs are longer than this, special line drivers and equalizers can be used to extend the signal transmission distance 90 to 150ft (30 to 50m).

With so many pieces of equipment involved, how do you troubleshoot a problem if there is no display at the end? Or what if you've laid the cable and there is no display to verify the installation is sound? The answer is the DVI Sniffer.

The DVI Sniffer from ALTINEX is a pocket-sized device that allows installers to measure the quality of a DVI signal at each connection point in the run. With simple operation and an easy-to-read display, the DVI Sniffer will become an installerís best friend. A six-level LED bar displays the strength of the DVI signal: level one indicates the DVI signal is very weak and cannot be recovered; level six indicates a full strength DVI signal. Just plug the cable or device into the DVI Sniffer and it will show you if the signal quality is good, marginal, or poor. With the DVI Sniffer there is no guessing game; it will show you if the signal is sufficient to run your projector or plasma display. The days of swapping out cables and equipment are over thanks to the DVI Sniffer.

The DVI Sniffer has an auto shut-off feature to preserve battery life and cannot be turned on accidentally in your tool box. It operates on 2 AA batteries which will last for over 2 years under normal use.
