Multimode Single Fiber Extender

Part no: 9151 0028 (A), 9151 0030 (RAK)

Highlight features

  • 4K/UHD (30Hz RGB 4:4:4, 60Hz YCbCr 4:2:0) and 3D capabilities
  • Multimode single fiber technology
  • USB KVM (HID) extension**
  • Extends HDMI 1.4 + Audio + RS-232 over a single multimode fiber
  • Local monitor output
  • Analog audio embedding from 3.5mm jack or 5-pole balanced

HDMI-3D-OPT-TX210 extends HDMI 1.4 and bi-directional RS-232* signals over one multimode fiber and transmit video signal with embedded audio to a distance of up to 2500 meters.

The extender was designed to handle HDMI 1.4 digital video signal and analog stereo audio from local inputs or HDMI embedded audio up to eight channel PCM or HBR audio. Analog audio is converted into digital format. The device has a local HDMI video output for monitoring. The video and the embedded audio of the local output is the same as the one transmitted via the OPT link. The HDMI-3D-OPT-TX210 handles HDCP encryption.

Using the factory, custom or transparent EDID emulation the user can fix and lock EDID data on the HDMI connector. Advanced EDID Management forces the required resolution from any video source and fixes the output format conforming to the system requirements. The unit offers bi-directional and transparent RS-232 transmission over the fiber connection.

All devices can be mounted on a rack shelf or used standalone. HDMI-3D-OPT-TX210 is compatible with both OPT series extenders and matrix switchers.

The device features Pixel Accurate Reclocking, a Lightware technology to eliminate jitter and skew generated by low quality sources and multiple daisy-chained devices.

Single fiber technology makes these units fully HDMI and HDCP compliant without need of a second fiber cable or copper connections. The bidirectional communication required for HDCP handshaking is performed via the same fiber core that transmits the video signal.

Galvanic isolation between source and display helps avoiding ground loops and hum effects. No delay occurs in the signal during optical conversion, the video image is transported without frame latency. This feature is crucial in 3D applications and systems where audio is processed separately. 

All devices among the Lightware fiber optical product portfolio are designed to assure cross-compatibility. In a standalone application, HDMI-3D-OPT-TX210/- RAK and HDMI-3D-OPT-RX150RA can work together flawlessly. To simplify installation and reduce costs, The Lightware hybrid modular matrix concept allows connecting these fiber extenders directly to an MX or a 25G Hybrid matrix router.
