DVIGear Expands HyperLight Active Optical Cable Product Line at InfoComm 2019

DVIGear demonstrated its newly expanded HyperLight Active Optical Cable product line at InfoComm 2019 in Orlando, Fla. New accessories for the modular HyperLight HDMI Series were shown, alongside a new interference-resistant shielded HyperLight DVI cable and a preview of an upcoming 8K-capable 48Gbps HyperLight HDMI cable.

The HyperLight Active Optical Cable line represents a paradigm shift in long distance signal extension technology. Unlike traditional active extenders, HyperLight cables are capable of lengths up to 100 meters (328 feet) with no external wiring, mid-cable powered extension or fiber termination required. All HyperLight cables are plenum-rated (UL CMP-OF – File E471410). Constructed using a hybrid design of Polyfluorinated Optical Fiber and copper wires, they are rugged yet lightweight, compact and highly flexible, with a two millimeters minimum bend radius. To further minimize cable diameter, HyperLight docking connectors may be detached, making the cables easy to install in narrow conduits and plenum spaces. Video signals are transmitted over the optical fibers, making them immune to interference from environmental noise. The optical transmission path provides a very low RFI / EMI profile that allows the cables to be installed in sensitive applications with strict security requirements. HyperLight cables are ideally suited for applications that require ultra-high-resolution signals to be extended over long runs with flawless image quality.

HyperLight DVI cables support any single-link DVI resolution and are available in lengths of up to 100 meters (328 feet). They support data rates up to 1.65 Gbps / lane or 4.95 Gbps total, in addition to providing support for HDCP 1.4 and 2.2. New at InfoComm this year, the HyperLight DVI “M” Series offers shielded metal DVI connectors. HyperLight DVI M Series cables are ideal for use in environments where RFI/EMI interference must be mitigated near endpoint devices, such as operating rooms and radiology labs.

DVIGear’s HyperLight HDMI cables support HDMI at 4K@60Hz (4:4:4) at cable lengths of up to 100 meters, in addition to support for HDCP 1.4 and 2.2. These cables utilize a variety of interchangeable passive, active and powered docking connectors that enable installers to change the connector type at the ends of the cable. By detaching these connectors, integrators can significantly reduce the cable’s cross-sectional area to facilitate pulling the cable through conduit. There are a total of eleven available DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort modular docking connectors, which allow the cable to be repurposed as needed to suit varying application requirements. The HyperLight range has been expanded to include powered wall plates for integrated long-distance cable runs and a powered HDMI Repeater module, enabling daisy-chaining of up to three 100-meter cables.

The HyperLight DisplayPort cables are capable of transmitting at data rates up to 32.4 Gbps. (HBR3). These cables support very high resolution applications at 4K / 60Hz (4:4:4) with cable lengths up to 100 meters and 8K@30Hz (4:4:4) up to 50 meters. HyperLight DisplayPort cables are HDCP compliant, plenum rated and provide a wide range of features in a compact, lightweight form factor.

At InfoComm DVIGear also previewed an upcoming HyperLight HDMI cable that supports 8K@60p resolution with a total bandwidth capacity of 48 Gbps. Further, this cable will be capable of supporting resolutions as high as 10K@100p, using HDMI DSC technology.
