Extron Introduces New Fiber Optic Extender for RGB, Audio, and Control Signals

Extron Electronics has introduced the FOX 500 Fiber Optic Extender, a transmitter and receiver set for sending high resolution RGB, stereo audio and RS-232 control over a single fiber. Engineered for reliability and exceptional high resolution image performance, it uses Extron‘s exclusive zero compression, all digital technology, to deliver perfect pixel-by-pixel transmission of computer images up to UXGA resolution. All the integration friendly features expected from Extron have been designed into the FOX 500, making it the preferred choice for very long distance signal transmission in professional A/V systems. Two models of the FOX 500 are available, one which supports multimode fiber at 850 nm for short-range applications up to 150 meters (450 feet) within buildings and facilities, and the other for singlemode as well as multimode fiber at 1310 nm to support very long-range transmissions up to 30 km (18.75 miles).

“We’ve designed this product to achieve two important objectives: deliver perfect pixel-by-pixel transmission for high resolution RGB signals over a single fiber, and offer the same A/V-oriented features that integrators have always expected from Extron,” says Lee Dodson, vice president of marketing of Extron.
For convenient integration into A/V systems, the FOX 500 Tx transmitter accepts, digitizes, and transmits all RGB format signals, unbalanced or balanced stereo audio signals, and RS-232 control signals. The FOX 500 Tx provides image and audio adjustments as well as a buffered RGB loop-through for local viewing of content, while the FOX 500 Rx receiver features sync format conversion and dual RGB and audio outputs which reduces equipment requirements. Both units feature industry standard LC-type connectivity to fiber optic cables. Each unit can be controlled and configured through RS-232. However, a second fiber link enhances integration by providing bi-directional RS-232 pass-through communications, control of both units at either location, and real-time system monitoring for verification of fiber link and input signal presence.
