Full HD over fibre now possible for home environments

Connectivity provider Gefen has released an HDMI v.1.3 over Fibre IR IR extender cable – allowing installations with distances of up to 300 metres with a single fibre optic cable.

The system uses technology from Omron that guarantees full raw signal transmission.

“Omron Electronic Components SX51 OSAs allow for the transmission of bidirectional, copyright-protected, high definition video streams over fibre without decoding or compression.”

As the cable is HDCP compliant, IR (infrared) control can also be extended  over the same wire – allowing the user easier access to control their audio or video source at the remote location.
