DVIGear Introduces 4K Optical Extenders That Work Over a Single Fiber

DVI-7313_Combo-1214DVIGear has launched two new single-fiber optical extender models, the DVI-7313 and DVI-7314. These compact extenders support 4K @ 30p resolution signals up to 1.2 miles (1640 feet).

These extenders support HDMI v1.4 (non-HDCP) signals with resolutions up to 4K (4096×2160/30p) over long cable distances. DVIGear says these extenders are similarly priced as other extension technologies (such as HDBaseT) while providing the same level of performance at much greater distances. The DVI-7313 supports multi-mode optical fiber, while the DVI-7314 supports both multi-mode and single-mode fiber optic cable.

Most single-fiber optical extenders transmit signals over multiple optical wavelengths, which can suffer from chromatic dispersion over long cable runs. To avoid this issue, these extenders employ a cutting-edge, high-speed SerDes that combines the DVI/HDMI signal channels into a single uncompressed 10.3 Gbps bit stream. This enables the optical transmission of the signal over a single optical wavelength, which provides increased signal fidelity, stability and flawless image quality, regardless of cable length.

The suggested list price for the DVI-7313 is $698.00/pair, while the DVI-7314 is $798.00/pair. Both extender sets are available now for immediate delivery. More information can be found here: DVI-7313 and DVI-7314.
