Single Fiber HDMI1.3 and bidirectional RS-232 extenders over multimode fiber optical cable

Lightware HDMI-OPT-TX100 and HDMI-OPT-RX100, HDMI-OPT-TX100R and HDMI-OPT-RX100R,
HDMI-OPT-TX200R and HDMI-OPT-RX200R are HDMI1.3 over fiber optical cable extenders which transmit the video signal with embedded audio to up to 2600 meters using only one multimode 50/125 fiber optical cable. Both units feature Lightware’s well known Advanced EDID Management with a memory of 100 EDIDs, 50 of which are user programmable. Using the Factory, Custom or Transparent EDID emulation the user can fix and lock EDID data on the transmitter’s input connector.

Dual output is available on both units through a built-in distribution amplifier. HDMI OPT TX200R has a local monitor HDMI output to enable easy monitoring of the outgoing signal and HDMI OPT RX200R has two identical HDMI outputs.* In addition, both units include Lightware’s Pixel Accurate Reclocking technology to eliminate jitter and skew generated by low quality sources and multiple daisy-chained devices.

Single Fiber Technology makes these units fully HDMI1.3 and HDCP1.1 compliant without need of a second fiber cable or copper connection. To simplify cabling, the bi-directional communication – which is necessary for HDCP handshaking – is performed on the same fiber core that transmits the video signal. Additionally, these units also feature bi-directional RS-232 pass-through and remote device control over the same fiber.*

Galvanic isolation between source and display helps to avoid ground loops and hum effects. No delay occurs in the signal during optical conversion, the video image is transported without any frame latency. This feature is crucial in 3D applications and systems where audio is processed separately.

Cross compatibility between every device in Lightware’s fiber optical product portfolio is ensured thanks to our attentive design. In a standalone application HDMI-OPT-TX200R and HDMI-OPT-RX200R can work together simply, but with Lightware’s hybrid modular matrix concept, it is even possible to connect these extender boxes directly to the matrix router using an MX-HDMI-OPT series input or output optical boards. This integrated solution simplifies installation and helps reducing system costs as well.
