DVIGear adds Mini DisplayPort 1.4 cables to HyperLight range

DVIGear expanded its HyperLight Active Optical Cables (AOC) range with products equipped with Mini DisplayPort connections at both ends.

The cables extend DisplayPort 1.4 signals with aggregate data rates up to 32.4 Gbps and are HDCP 1.4 / 2.2 compliant. They support resolutions of up to 8K / 30Hz (4:4:4) for cable lengths of up to 50m and 4K / 60Hz (4:4:4) for cables of up to 100m.

Direct connection to both Mini-DP sources and displays without the need for any intermediary adaptors or dongles is provided. Each cable also includes a set of detachable docking plugs that enable direct connection to full-size DisplayPort devices at either side of the cable. A locking pin is included to prevent inadvertent disconnection of the docking plugs from the cable. 

HyperLight cables are designed for use in mission critical applications. They have an MTBF of greater than 150,000 hours (> 17 years) and an in-field failure rate of less than 0.1%.  The high-speed DisplayPort signals are transmitted over four optical fibres, which make them immune to interference from environmental noise. The optical transmission path provides a very low RFI / EMI profile, which allows the cables to be installed in sensitive applications with strict security requirements. The cables draw power from the connected DisplayPort source, eliminating the need for an external power supply. These features make the cables suited for applications that require ultra-high resolution DisplayPort signals to be extended over long cable runs up to 100 meters. 

Constructed using a hybrid design of 4x POF (Polyfluorinated Optical Fibre) and 6x copper wires, HyperLight cables are plenum rated, rugged, lightweight and flexible, with a minimum bend radius of 2mm. To minimize cable diameter during installation, the full-size DisplayPort docking plugs may be detached, revealing the cable’s cross-sectional area that measures 8mm x 13mm.  These features, plus an optional pulling sleeve, make the cables easy to install even in narrow conduits or in plenum air spaces.
