Lightware HDMI-3D-OPT-RX150RA optical receiver provides extension of uncompressed Full-HD video and audio with optional HDCP encryption plus USB HID* over one multimode fiber up to 2500 m. The unit offers a digital and an analog audio output, bi-directional RS-232 pass-through, HDCP compliance and works at all standard AV resolutions.

The interface's 9 Gbps bandwidth is capable of transmitting 1080p (@120Hz) video signals, video up to 4K pixel resolution (4K x 2K @30Hz), as well as video with full support of content protection (HDCP). HDMI-3D-OPT-RX150RA offers dual audio outputs: a digital S/PDIF audio and a symmetrical analog output with PHOENIX connectors.

Single Fiber Technology makes the unit fully HDMI and HDCP compliant without the need of a second fiber cable or copper connections. To simplify cabling, the bi-directional communication - necessary for HDCP handshaking and USB transfer - is performed on the same fiber core that transmits the video signal. The receiver is configurable through the mini USB connector.

Intelligent HID Emulation* is provided for two devices with full transparency. The special HID devices including keyboard and mouse - are emulated by the extender and transparently transferred to the computer with the result that no drivers are required for the proper functionality, it’s as easy as Plug & Play.
*USB HID: Human Interface Device such as keyboard, mouse, presenter or Smart Card.
*USB HID (KVM) extension feature is under development, only available later.
