The Gefen EXT-DP-CP-2FO DisplayPort fiber optic Extender transmitts signal up to 1000 feet (300 meters) using two strands of 50/125 um multi-mode (OM2/OM3) LC-terminated fiber optic cable. 62.5/125 um (OM1) fiber may also be used for a maximum range of up to 500 feet (150 meters).
Compared to similar copper-based solutions, optical signal transmission provides galvanic isolation and much better resistance to electromagnetic interference. Sender and Receiver modules feature cast Aluminum enclosures, providing further immunity to radiated noise.
Female connectors allow optimized lengths of DisplayPort cables to be used, preventing stress on source and display connectors. This, along with the compact size of the modules help create a clean and trouble-free installation by reducing clutter around the connector panels.
Resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 (WQXGA) are supported.
