Extron releases Fox II 4K extenders

Extron FOX II 4K Series extenders

Extron Electronics has introduced Fox II 4K Series for extension, switching, and distribution of 4K video, multi channel audio, and bidirectional control signals over fibre optic cabling.

The series includes the Fox II T DP 4K and Fox II T HD 4K fibre optic transmitters for DisplayPort and HDMI, as well as the Fox II R DP 4K with a Type 2 dual mode DisplayPort output to support DisplayPort and HDMI 4K resolution displays. The HDCP-compliant extenders are suitable for point-to-point installations or in combination with a Fox Matrix Switcher.

Fox II 4K Series fibre optic extenders provide signal extension for moderate distances of up to 2 km over multimode fibre optic cable and extreme distances up to 30 km when using singlemode cable. Both transmitters include a buffered loop-through for a local monitor at the source. Also, the Fox II R DP 4K provides audio de embedding and balanced return analogue stereo audio output to support a remote audio source at the receiver. Other features include Key Minder, EDID Minder, audio embedding, audio gain and attenuation adjustment, bidirectional RS 232 and IR control, and real time system monitoring. Optional mounting kits such as the MBU 125 under-desk mounting kit allow signal extension from a source in a lectern to a remote display or central control room.
