RT Com USA Introduces New Digital Extender® Fiber Optic Extenders for HDMI and DVI

HDMI also availableSingle Mode and Multi mode compatible
October 15, 2010, Sparta, NJ – RT Com USA has announced the introduction of a new version of its popular OBHD HDMI and OBCA DVI fiber optic extension products. The revised products offer the same reliability and compatibility of the original models and add versatility and lower cost for deployment. The OBHD-2C  and OBCA-2C operate with 2 strands of multi-mode or single-mode fiber optic cable. With transmitter/receiver prices comparable to more common CAT-x solutions, the deployment of fiber is a more effective solution than ever before.

As video systems move toward digital, so does the need for commercially robust and reliable extender solutions. There are 3 general extender device types available; those that transmit uncompressed video over cat-5 or cat-6 network data cable, those that send compressed, packetized video over IP networks and those that transmit uncompressed digital video over common fiber optic cable. Each of these extender solutions has a place in system design, but only fiber optic solutions can provide relative certainty to an installation project. Fiber optic transmission is unaffected by ground loops or external magnetic interference. It is not affected by network traffic or degraded image quality due to compression schemes, and the long-term viability and versatility of a fiber optic infrastructure is indisputable.

 

The new solutions from RT Com provide fiber optic transmitter/receiver pairs support video resolutions up to 1080P@60Hz with 36 bit Deep Color and High Bit Rate Audio and computer signals up to 1920×1200. Both solutions are more compact than their predecessors and can be acquired at prices that rival the prices of good quality Cat-x extenders. The only hurdle an installer needs to overcome is the fear of fiber optic termination, and many field termination kits tout completed fiber terminations in less time than it takes to terminate a BNC connector. Not only that, but fiber optic cable prices are now down to the range of good RGB cable.
