Extron Electronics is now shipping its Foxbox SR high definition multimedia interface and PowerCage Fox SR HDMI, high performance fiber optic-to-HDMI scaling receivers.
Those products accept a fiber optic signal with audio, RS-232 control and high-bandwidth digital content protection-compliant HDMI, digital video interface, video graphics array or high definition component video, scaling the video to the optimal output resolution for the display, according to the company.
The scaling receivers support resolutions up to 1920x1200, including HDTV 1080p/60, Extron says. Available in multimode and singlemode models, they also provide features such as “Key Minder” for continuous authentication of HDCP compliance, audio de-embedding, Auto Input Memory and internal test patterns, the company says. The Foxbox SR HDMI and PowerCage Fox SR HDMI are intended for fiber optic installations that require scaling of high resolution content, the firm adds.
