MuxLab announces new extender sends uncompressed 4K up to 100m
MuxLab has announced the availability of its next generation HDMI 2.0 Fibre Extender Kit that comes in a small footprint with rugged, dongle-style enclosures. These can be connected discreetly to the source and extended display.
A duplex OM3 multi-mode fibre optic cable connects local and remote locations up to 100m in distance. Video is transmitted instantly as 4K at 60Hz with a total data throughput of 18Gbps to accommodate the current HDMI specification.
The transmitter offers the option of receiving power from its USB port or from the source’s HDMI connection to further streamline the installation.
Supporting supports HDMI 2.0, CEC, EDID and HDCP 2.2, MuxLab’s HDMI 2.0 Fibre Extender Kit is designed for a variety of applications, including installations in classrooms, corporate facilities, digital signage projects, inter-building systems and medical facilities, among others.
“When you’re sending uncompressed 4K AV in any installation, fibre is ideal because it meets all the necessary requirements for uncompressed delivery. Fibre also offers better noise immunity and is future proofed in the sense that the infrastructure can be relied on for the long-term,” says MuxLab director of product management Joe Teixeira.
The kit is currently shipping and available through MuxLab’s selection of distributors worldwide.
