July 21, 2009--Atlona Technologies has released a new line of video extenders that transfer high definition (HD) video over multimode SC type fiber-optic cable up to 1000 ft. without signal loss. Featuring a secure video signal beyond the lengths of actual cables, these extenders are especially suited for digital signage and medical imaging applications.
RGB/YPbPr versions ( AT-RGBF30S and AT-RGBF30R) are capable of sending HD video signal, along with audio and RS-232, through multimode fibers (SC connection) allowing any HD display to extend resolutions up to 400 meters (1320 ft.) at HDTV resolutions 720p/1080i/1080p.
These UL/CE approved units are equipped with an advanced digital fiber-optic technology designed to allow for self-adjustment with no compression, bit reduction, or signal degradation. Multiple signals can be run in a single conduit without crosstalk. The AT-RGBF30SR is CEC-compliant and supports 12-bit color depth; it has an 8 dB input equalizer, which compensates losses over 5 meters (16 ft.). The send and receive units of these RGB baluns are sold as separate pieces to allow for conversion among multiple HD video types, depending on the receiver unit. This unit is compatible with Atlona's DVI or HDMI receiver units (AT-DVIF30SR and AT-HDF30SR) making it versatile enough to handle even the most complicated digital signage application. Units also feature 2-way audio and RS-232, allowing for communication with attached devices.
These video extenders have an MSRP of $1,200 each.
