Gefen launches 4K UHD fibre extender27 October 2014
Gefen describes its new 4K Ultra HD Extender over One Fiber as an intelligent solution with the proper bandwidth to support 4K video resolutions. It delivers resolutions up to 4K (3840×2160 at 30Hz) with RS-232 and bidirectional IR using one SC-terminated fibre optic cable.
This long-range solution is effective up to 1,000m at 4K resolutions and up to 2,000m at 1080p/60. RS-232 offers an easy method of system automation while bidirectional IR facilitates control from both local and extended locations.
Installation requires a single strand of multi-mode fibre optic cable to connect the source to the receiver. The use of fibre optic cabling provides electromagnetic interference protection for mission-critical applications. The metallic enclosures further insulate against ambient noise. Automatic calibration based on the length of the cable is included to refine the quality of the delivered video.
Virtual EDID management ensures signal continuity during use and facilitates a quick set-up when powering displays on or off or integrating switchers or other solutions in the video chain. This solution includes locking HDMI and power supply connections for an uninterrupted performance. All HDMI features are supported including 3DTV pass-through, 12-bit Deep Color, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.
Surface-mountable enclosures provide maximum installation flexibility. HDCP compliance is included, for consumer content transmitted using the HDMI format.
