Extron Electronics unveils the DFX 100 Fiber Optic Extender, a transmitter and receiver set for long-haul transmission of digital visual interface video signals over a single fiber optic cable.
The DFX 100 extender delivers single link DVI-D signals over multimode fiber optic cable at lengths up to 984 feet, and it uses all digital technology to deliver perfect pixel-for-pixel transmission of video images up to 1920×1200, including HDTV 1080p/60, Extron says.
The extender’s integrator-friendly features and compact size make the DFX 100 ideal for applications that require long distance transmission of high-resolution video content with the highest quality, the company says.
In addition, the DFX 100 can be used for simple point-to-point applications or in combination with DMS Series Modular Matrix Switchers that include the new DMS Fiber Matrix Boards, Extron says. DMS Series matrix switchers can be populated with any combination of DMS DVI and DMS Fiber matrix boards to support local and remote devices.
To simplify integration, ultra-flexible DVI cables are attached to the transmitter and the receiver to allow direct connection to source and destination devices.
“The Extron DFX 100 offers system designers a very compact solution for extending DVI signals long distances over a fiber optic cable,” says Casey Hall, Extron’s vice president of sales and marketing. “With the attached ultra-flexible DVI cable and standard LC fiber optic connectivity, it is also easy to integrate,” he said.
