Gefen introduces DisplayPort 1.2 fibre-optic extender at ISE 2017

Gefen EXT-DP-4K600-1SC extender

Gefen has introduced the EXT-DP-4K600-1SC extender at ISE 2017, it enables integrators to place 4K 600 MHz DisplayPort 1.2 sources and displays up to 660 feet apart with full optical isolation.

The EXT-DP-4K600-1SC extends HDCP 2.2, HDCP 1.4, and DPCP compliant DisplayPort 600 MHz 4K audio/video over fibre.

WQUXGA (3840 x 2400), 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160), and 4K Cinema - DCI (4096 x 2160), up to 60 Hz frame rate and 4:4:4 Chroma sub-sampling are supported.

The AV signal can be extended up to 200 metres, or 660 feet, over a single strand of SC-terminated 50/125 µm OM3 or better multi-mode fibre-optic cable.

The EXT-DP-4K600-1SC provides full electrical isolation between the Sender and the Receiver, meeting the stringent safety and EMC requirements for critical applications.

When used with a pair of Gefen EXT-PS52AU-M-1.3-6-AL power supplies (available separately), this extender is compliant with medical safety and EMC standards EN 60601-1 and EN 60601-1-2. The EXT-DP-4K600-1SC can be powered from sources and displays featuring powered USB ports, or by using external power supplies.

For most applications, the Sender and Receiver are plug-and-play and will work without any set-up. In cases where signal optimisation becomes necessary due to special requirements of a source and or a display, both units feature EQ switches.

The EXT-DP-4K600-1SC supports DisplayPort technologies such as multi-streaming (connecting multiple daisy-chained displays to one DisplayPort output) and auxiliary channel (transporting data and controls along with the AV signal).
