Extron Electronics introduced the FOX II DP, a transmitter and receiver set for long haul transmission of HDCP-compliant DisplayPort video, multi-channel audio, RS-232 control and Infrared control signals over fiber-optic cabling.
Engineered for reliability and image performance, the FOX II DP uses Extron all-digital technology to deliver pixel-for-pixel DisplayPort computer-video images up to 2560 x 1600, the company said.
The FOX II DP provides support for higher resolutions, multi-channel audio, an audio return channel and IR support to the FOX Series, according to Extron. The unit was designed for point-to-point installations or in combination with a FOX Series matrix switcher for an enterprise-wide distribution system of high-resolution DisplayPort video, multi-channel audio and control signals, the company said.
“Integrators and system designers who rely on Extron fiber-optic systems can now experience a new level of performance for distributing AV and control signals over a fiber-optic infrastructure,” says Casey Hall, Extron’s vice president of sales and marketing. “With support for DisplayPort resolutions up to 2560 x 1600, along with its enhanced features, the FOX II DP breaks new ground for the already extensive line of FOX Series fiber optic products from Extron,” he said.
The fiber optic DisplayPort extender is available in multimode and singlemode models. Some of its many integrator-friendly features include Key Minder, EDID Minder, Auto Input Memory, audio embedding and de-embedding, audio gain and attenuation control and real-time system monitoring, Extron said.
