300M 18Gbps Fiber Optic Extender Kit

Description

The AC-EXO-444-KIT is an HDMI extender over fiber optic cable. It allows for ultra-long distance extension of HDMI signals (1.25 miles or more). All HDMI 2.0 signals are supported as the bandwidth is 18Gbps.

This fiber optic extender allows the user to extend an 18Gbps HDMI signal 2 kilometers via single-mode fiber and up to 300 meters using multi-mode fiber. Using ICT (Invisible Compression Technology), we can deliver a virtually lossless high bandwidth 4K HDR signal with support for all signals up to 18Gbps. Deep color and HDR metadata remain intact, making the transmission free of artifacts like banding. Similar devices will deliver a sub-par image with visible banding and color shifting. You can go even further by installing your own 10G SFP+ port.

It solves problems for commercial and residential markets for distributing high-value 4K 18Gbps content from rack to display. These extenders go the distance; no need to find power and cascade extenders for ultra-long runs. Additionally, AC-EXO-444-KIT​ offers solutions for 18Gbps distribution in residential, digital entertainment centers, retail stores, and AV events that require reliable and long-distance distribution, suitable for Data Centers, Control Rooms, Conference Rooms, Schools, and Corporate Training environments.

Extend 4K 60 4:4:4 and HDR Signals: Distance is no longer an obstacle. By using the AC-EXO-444-KIT you can go virtually any distance you require.  The pre-installed 10G SFP+ (Small Form-factor Pluggable transceiver) supports up to 2 km (1.25 Miles) when using a single strain of single-mode fiber or 300m (1000ft) on a single strain of readily available OM3 Multi-mode fiber.  You can go even further by replacing the 10G SFP+. SFP+'s are a staple in Fiber Optics today and are readily available - if you need help selecting an SFP+, just contact us!

Down Scaling: The AC-EXO-444-KIT has a scaling circuit built into the transmitter.  The scaler can scale 4K (and HDR) --> 1080P.  A common application for this is when you have a 4K distribution and you have one or two displays that are older. You can use the extender to scale down where you need to and not have to reduce the entire system.  The AC-EXO-444-KIT does the heavy lifting, eliminating the need to add additional boxes.

Total EDID Management: The AC-EXO-444-KIT has robust EDID control. EDID management allows you to manage the input device and request specific video resolutions and/or audio codecs.  the following EDID options are available: 

  • EDID Bypass
  • 1080P 2CH Audio
  • 1080P 8CH Audio
  • 4K60 4:2:0 2CH Audio
  • 4K60 4:2:0 8CH Audio
  • 4K60 4:4:4 HDR 2CH Audio
  • 4K60 4:4:4 HDR 8CH Audio
  • USER EDID – EDID Copy

The EDID Copy function allows you to copy and save from any display or projector you want to. 

 

On Board Troubleshooting: This unit allows you to generate a 1080P or 4K test pattern to identify external problems (source, repeater, displays, etc.). You can now be sure that your wiring is correct and get to the bottom of problems quickly should they arise, without having to worrying if the source or sink is working properly. You can generate a test pattern from the Tx or the Rx so you can verify total system infrastructure integrity.

 

Total ARC Management: With Total ARC (Audio Return Channel) Management you can route audio from local displays back to the rack or head end for further distribution in a distributed audio system. With the AC-EXO-444-KIT you can manage ARC in two ways:

  • Use Toslink from the display ran into the Rx unit and then extract from the Toslink port on the Tx (recommended)
  • Use the ARC HDMI port on the display and the extract from the Toslink port on the Tx

 

IR & RS232 Management: IR & RS-232 are bidirectional and can control the sources from the sinks or vice versa. In addition you can use the I-PASS port to plug your Control System emitter ports directly into the IR (I-PASS) port on the transmitter (via mono 3.5mm cable) for clean and reliable IR pass through, our unique VPC (Voltage Protection Circuit) allows you to do this without wear and tear on the electronics inside.
