Extron Electronics' FOX T UWP 302 is a two-input fiber-optic transmitter for long-haul transmission of HDCP-compliant, HDMI, RGBHV or HD component video and stereo audio signals over singlemode or multimode fiber-optic cabling. It occupies a three-gang space and uses all-digital technology to provide pixel-for-pixel transmission of images up to 1920x1200, including HDTV 1080p/60, Extron says.
"AV system designers and integrators often need to send digital and analog video signals over fiber-optic cable from a single location," commented Casey Hall, vice president of sales and marketing with Extron. "The FOX T UWP 302 provides both HDMI and VGA inputs in a convenient wallplate design that blends with any environment."
The transmitter digitizes analog signals to ensure high-quality transmission, the manufacturer notes. It also includes features such as EDID Minder, Key Minder, audio embedding with gain and attenuation control, auto-input switching, and real-time system monitoring, according to Extron.
EDID Minder manages EDID communication between sources and destination, and Key Minder continuously authenticates HDCP encryption for use with protected content.
