Atlona Releases a New Series of HDMI Video Fiber Optic Extenders Aimed at Pro Install, Medical, and Government Markets

Atlona's Fiber Optic Extenders, Available in 3GSDI, DVI, RGB/YPbPr, and HDMI, extend high definition signal up to 1000 ft securely, along with audio and RS232, over a single SC Fiber cable

San Jose, CA - July 20, 2009 -Atlona Technologies is releasing a new line of video extenders that transfer high definition video over multi -mode Optical type fiber optic cable up to 1000 ft without any signal loss. These new extenders serve not only as a way for companies to send video signal far beyond the lengths of actual cables, but also provides a measure of security due to their use of Fiber Optic cable. Since Fiber Optic cable is immune to interference caused by electromagnetic fields (EMF/EMI), these extenders are perfect for medical imaging applications where a perfect picture is not only ideal, but necessary.

Atlona HDMI versions, model AT -HDF20SR and AT -HDF30SR, are capable of sending HDMI v1.3 digital Audio/Video signal through multimode fibers (SC connection) allowing any HD Display to extend resolutions up to 400 meters (1320 ft) at WUXGA (1920x120 @ 60Hz) or full range of HDTV resolutions 720p/1080i/1080p.
Along with being HDCP/DDC compliant, these UL/CE approved Atlona units are equipped with advanced digital fiber optic technology allowing for self adjustment with no compression, bit reduction, or signal degradation. Multiple signals can be run in a single conduit without crosstalk. These CEC compliant units support 12 -bit color depth and have an 8dB input equalizer, which compensates losses over 5 meters (16 ft).
The AT -HDF20SR is an adaptor styled baluns with a small form factor that lends itself perfectly to HDMI matrix switchers where space is limited. The larger of the two baluns is sold as two separate units, the AT -HDF30R and the AT -HDF30R, to allow users the ability to convert among multiple HD video types depending on the receiver unit. This unit is compatible with Atlona's RGB or DVI receiver units (models: AT -DVIF30R and AT -RGBF30R) making it versatile enough to handle even the most complicated digital signage application.
Atlona's new AT -HDF30S and AT -HDF30R will be releases with an MSRP of $995.00 each and the AT -HDF20SR will have an MSRP of 1,199.00. These units are expected to start shipping by July 17, 2009.
