HDMI over single fibre

AUTHOR: Inavate

Obonok technologies has announced its new range of HDMI-over-fibre transmitters and receivers. Known as the Blu-Wire fibre series, the four available Tx / Rx pais enable integrators to use both fibre and UTP backbones to distribute HDMI v1.3, HDCP plus IR or USB over a single multimode fibre and / or UTP.

The company claims that this is a unique feature. By daisy-chaining up to eight fibre receivers, the extension distance over multimode fibre is approximately six kilometres.

You can also stem two UTP receivers of each fibre receiver, and each receiver also has two HDMI outputs, reducing parts counts in an installation.
