The Datapath dL8 is a 1U rack mount eight output distribution amplifier for high resolution Dual-Link DVI signals. It has a fully programmable EDID to graphics source, allowing simple control of resolution and frame rate. Through active equalisation and re-clocking hardware it supports source cable lengths up to 20m at full Dual-Link resolutions.

The Datapath dL8 supports up to 32 screen display walls when used in conjunction with up to 8 Datapath x4 stand alone display wall controllers. The Datapath x4 is a stand alone display wall controller, that accepts a standard single or Dual-Link DVI-D input and can flexibly display this across for DVI-I outputs. The x4 is now also available in a new rack mount version, with a larger fan and less noise.
