Extron extends HDMI up to 300m

Extron has introduced the HFX 100 HDMI fibre optic extender, a transmitter and receiver set for transmission up to 300m.

It extends HDCP-compliant HDMI signals over a multimode cable and uses all-digital technology to deliver pixel-for-pixel transmission of images up to 1920x1200, including HDTV 1080p/60.

The HFX 100 is suitable for applications that require long distance transmission of HDMI video and embedded multi-channel digital audio signals.

It supports HDMI specification features including data rates up to 6.25 Gbps, 12-bit Deep Color, HD lossless audio formats, and CEC.

Flexible HDMI cables are attached to the transmitter and receiver, allowing direct connection with source and destination devices. The transmitter and receiver units are housed in a 1U, one-eighth rack width enclosure.
