The Reliable and Simple Solution for Extending HDMI 1.3 -- up to 330m / 1000 feet
The Gefen HDMI 1.3 Over Fiber with IR system extends huge amounts of video information over a single small strand of inexpensive fiber optic cable that can easily be hidden in a wall or above a ceiling. This simple solution offers all the benefits of multiple strand solutions, including HDCP handshaking. Great distances normally not achievable with fiber optic cable can be easily obtained.
1080p Full HD deep color is displayed at the destination with no signal delays and no EMI (electromagnetic interference) disturbances such as cut-outs and pixilation, phenomena that can happen often with copper cables, especially at long distances. The Gefen HDMI v1.3 Over Fiber with IR Extender is designed to deliver HDMI v1.3 features such as deep color with enhanced multichannel digital audio, bringing a full theater experience wherever it is needed. The IR back channel is carried on the CAT5 cable, providing convenient, local control of video source devices.
How It Works
Install the Sender near your High Definition source and the Receiver at the Display side. Connect HDMI cables from the Sender to your source and from Display to Receiver. Run a single strand of SC fiber optic cable from Sender to Receiver for AV signals, then run a single CAT5 cable from Sender to Receiver for the IR back channel. Plug in the power supplies on the Sender and Receiver, and crisp vibrant HDMI 1.3 video will appear on the Display. The included IR remote control allows selection of video sources from the vicinity of any Display. IR commands from the remote control to video source equipment are sent across the IR back channel via the CAT5 cable which connects the Sender and Receiver at their RJ45 jacks. HDMI 1.3 Features:
- 340 MHz (up to 16 bit YUV 444 supported @ 1080p)
- Deep Color Supported (XV Color Supported)
