DVIGear has introduced the DVI-7380, a “high-performance, cost-effective”, DisplayPort Optical Extender designed to meet and exceed even the most demanding system requirements. It supports a wide array of signal types, provides long-distance extension over a single fibre cable, and supports ultra-high resolutions up to 8K (UHD) at 30Hz (4:4:4).
The DVI-7380 supports DisplayPort 1.4 HBR3 signals with data rates up to 8.1Gbps/channel (32.4Gbps aggregate), resolutions up to 8K /30p, embedded audio, bi-directional IR, RS-232 and two 10/100 BaseT Ethernet ports, using only a single fiber optic cable. It can extend these signals over cable distances of more than 5.0 miles (> 8,000 meters) using Single-Mode fibre and up to 1000 ft. (~ 300 meters) using Multi-Mode fibre.
The extender set consists of an optical transmitter unit and an optical receiver unit. The transmitter converts the AV signals into light pulses for transmission over a single strand of Multi-Mode or Single-Mode fibre optic cable. The receiver converts the light pulses back to AV signals for the display, as well as other downstream devices.
