At ISE, Opticis introduced the DPFX-400-TR DisplayPort 1.2 multi-media fibre-optic extender. It can transmit DisplayPort 1.2 signals up to 1500m over a single duplex LC single-mode fibre in 4K (4096×2160) resolution at 60Hz (RGB & YCbCr : 4:4:4). Following the DisplayPort 1.2 standard, it offers a total data rate of 21.6Gbps (5.4Gbps per lane). The DPFX-400-TR supports the MST (Multi-stream Transport) feature as well as transmitting the auxiliary/I²C channel over fibre.
It also provides both DisplayPort and HDMI outputs on its receiver with dual-mode DP (DP++), with either output selectable via a switch. In addition, the DPFX-400-TR provides RS-232 and analogue stereo audio transmission over fibre, which Opticis says makes it a perfect multi-media fibre-optic extender with support for DisplayPort 1.2.
