ISE 2016: Trio of new products from Opticis12 February 2016
Three new products are on show on the Opticis ISE 2016 stand. Among them is the DPAX DisplayPort 1.2 Data Recovery Repeater. It supports UHD resolution (up to 3840 x 2160) at 60Hz uncompressed and unscaled, optimising image quality, and transmits DisplayPort data up to 8m over copper cable. With a total data rate of 21.6Gbps (5.4Gbps pelane).
HDCP is supported, and the device can be operated via USB power or a DC power adaptor. With measurements of only 39.5mm x 50mm x 13mm, it is designed to b e compact enough to be appropriate for almost any installation, Opticis says. Typical applications include control rooms, simulators, medical displays and digital signage.
Also new is the DPFX-200-TR optical DisplayPort extender. Like the DPAX, it is highly compact. The transmitter/receiver set enables the transmission of WQUXGA (3840 x 2160) resolution data at 60Hz up to 100m over two LC multi-mode fibres. Also, like the DPAX it does not use scaling or compression. It is, says Opticis, plug and play and supports multi-stream transport. Target applications are similar to those for the DPAX unit.
Opticis is also showcasing its new active optical DVI cable, the DVFC-100. Again, scaling and compression are not used, and transmission of
WUXGA or 1080p resolution data is possible over 100m.
