KVMSwitchTech Introduces Long Range Fiber Optic HDMI Extender

Improved HDMI over Fiber Extender offers 1080p video resolution up to 1000 feet.

Hudson, OH August 28, 2013


HDMI Extenders serve an important function for High Definition signal distribution in many industries ranging from hospitality to medical and industrial installations. However, some installations require unique solutions because displays must be located further away from the source than common installations allow (HDBaseT extenders are limited to 330 fee). Other installations such as hospitals may have concerns about EMI interference causing degradation. KVMSwitchTech now offers a solution in their HDMIFOEXT-1000 that circumvents both of these issues. This HDMI Fiber Optic HDMIFOEXT-1000 transmits the HDCP compliant signal using a single SC type multi-mode optical fiber cable. This space-saving low-wattage dongle style unit not only provides flexibility in installation locations, but also decreases the likelihood of signal quality due to cabling running too close to other types of cables such as high power lines.

Customers may also be interested in KVMSwitchTech's other Fiber Optic solutions such as their EMI Shielded DVI Fiber Optic Extender over SC type Multi-mode single fiber. These units have built in EDID feature, compact design, and support video resolutions up to 1900x1200. As is the case with many of our high end products these Fiber Extenders come with CE, UL, and FCC agency approvals.
