Always on the cutting edge of technology, AVProConnect launches a new set of fiber optic extenders allowing installers to extend HDMI 2.0(x) 4K60 (4:4:4) up to 2 km via single mode fiber optic cable and 300 meters over multi-mode fiber.
Sioux Falls, S.D. (December 5, 2017) – AVProConnect is proud to announce the release of their latest extender set allowing installers to extend an HDMI signal up to 2 kilometers over single mode fiber optic cable, the AC-EXO-444. As AVProConnect’s flagship fiber optic extender, this product solves problems for both commercial and residential A/V integrators when distributing high value 4K 18Gbps content from Source to Sink.
Distance is only one benefit of this extender. On top of extending signals two kilometers over single mode fiber and 300 meters using multi-mode fiber, this product features advanced EDID management, built-in down scaling, on board troubleshooting test pattern, full ARC (Audio Return Channel) management, and IR and RS-232 management. With an influx of 4K sources (Apple TV 4K, X-Box One S, Roku Ultra, Sony PS4 Pro, etc.) and increased demand for HDR (High Dynamic Range) and WCG (Wide Color Gamut) content distribution, fiber optic cable runs are becoming common place in the industry.
Jeff Murray of AVPro Global stated, “This new HDMI extender solves many problems integrators are challenged with every day – extending 4K60 4:4:4 without extreme compression of the signal to the point of creating artifacts. Run OM3/4 Multi-mode or Single-mode (which is able to be terminated in the field with an L.C. style connector) up to 2 kilometers and get crystal clear-artifact free content reproduction with 4K HDR and WCG between a source and a display that are 2000 meters apart (that’s almost 22 football fields long)! When you consider it also comes with bi-directional IR and RS-232, ARC, full EDID management tools and test patterns built-in to every set, we see this product as a no brainer for fiber optic installations.”
