The Reliable and Simple Solution for Extending HDMI 1.3 -- up to 330m / 1000 feet
This product has been replaced by the Gefen
The Gefen HDMI 1.3 Over Fiber with IR system extends Full 1080p HD Deep Color with multichannel digital audio over a single small strand of fiber optic cable that can easily be hidden in a wall or above a ceiling. Great distances of extension can be obtained thanks to the use of fiber optic cable.
1080p Full HD Deep Color is displayed at the destination with no signal delays and no EMI (electromagnetic interference) disturbances such as cut-outs and pixilation, phenomena that can happen often with copper cables, especially at long distances. Multichannel digital audio with Dolby TrueHD & DTS Master Audio helps to deliver a full HD audio/video home theater experience wherever it is needed. The IR back channel is carried on the CAT5 cable, providing convenient, local control of video source devices.
How It WorksInstall the Sender near your High Definition source and the Receiver at the Display side. Connect HDMI cables from the Sender to your source and from Display to Receiver. Run a single strand of SC fiber optic cable from Sender to Receiver for AV signals, then run a single CAT5 cable from Sender to Receiver for the IR back channel. Plug in the power supplies on the Sender and Receiver, and crisp vibrant HDMI 1.3 video will appear on the Display. IR commands from the remote control to video source equipment are sent across the IR back channel via the CAT5 cable which connects the Sender and Receiver at their RJ45 jacks.
