The Gefen 4K Ultra HD Extender for HDMI over One Fiber is a complete solution, allowing HDMI, RS-232 and Bi-Directional IR to be extended up to 3300 feet (1000 meters) at 4K resolution and up to 6600 feet (2000 meters) at 1080p60 Full HD. This product works with any HDMI source and supports resolutions up to 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 @ 30Hz). This HDCP-compliant extender is the ideal for an installation where the HDMI source and display are located apart from each other in an interference-prone operating environment. A single strand of SC-terminated multi-mode fiber optic cable is used for extension, providing excellent protection from electromagnetic interference (EMI), and preserving signal integrity. The Automatic Virtual EDID feature allows automatic copying of the Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) to the sender unit for continuous availability to the source. This allows rapid recovery of picture upon display power up or when used in conjunction with Switchers and Matrixes. Compared to similar copper-based solutions, optical signal transmission provides inherent galvanic isolation and excellent immunity to electromagnetic interference. These Sender and Receiver modules also feature metal enclosures, providing further protection against radiated noise. Locking HDMI and power connectors ensure trouble-free installation and long-lasting, reliable operation.
How It Works
The Sender unit is placed near the source and the Receiver unit near the Display. Connect the supplied locking HDMI cable between the Sender unit and the source. Connect an HDMI cable between the Receiver unit and the display. Connect the included DB-9 cable from an RS-232 automation device to the Sender unit. Connect another male-to-female DB-9 cable between the Receiver unit and an RS-232-controlled device on the Receiver side (such as the display). To send an IR control signal from the viewing location to the source unit, connect the IR output from an automation control device or the included Gefen EXT-RMT-EXTIRN IR Extender to the IR In/Ext port on the Receiver, and connect an IR Emitter to the IR Out on the Sender unit to IR Sensor window of the source. To control devices at the viewing location (such as the display) from the source side, use the IR In/Ext port on the Sender side and the IR Out connection on the Receiver side. Connect one strand of multi-mode fiber optic cable, with SC connectors, between the Sender and the Receiver units. Connect the locking power supplies to the Sender and the Receiver units and plug them into electrical outlets. Power up all associated equipment.
