RTcom USA Introduces Versatile Fiber Optic and CAT-5e/6 Extension Systems For High Definition Video and Audio

OBHDSparta, N.J., (March 24, 2008) – RTcom USA Inc., provider of digital connectivity solutions for professional and consumer audio-visual and personal computer systems, today announced two revolutionary fiber optic and Category 5e/6 (CAT-5e, CAT-6) cable systems for the extension of high-definition video and audio signals. With HDCP compliant modules for both DVI and HDMI, the fiber optic and CAT-5e/6 cable systems provide complete solutions for medium and long distance high-definition content delivery.

OBCARTcom’s unique fiber optic and CAT-5e/6 transmitters and receivers ensure high-definition, noise-free extension up to 3,280 feet. Each extension system consists of one transmitter, which converts DVI or HDMI into a fiber optic or CAT-5e/6 signal, and a receiver, which takes the signal and converts it back into DVI or HDMI.

“RTcom designed the DVI and HDMI extension systems not only to dramatically increase signal extension without degradation, but also to provide installers with flexible solutions for a variety of applications,? said Joon Ryu, president of RTcom USA. “As with the majority of RTcom products, both the fiber optic and CAT-5e/6 extenders are High-Definition Content Protection (HDCP) compliant, which allows users to play high definition, commercially copy protected material from sources which are distant from the displays.?
