DVIGear has introduced its HyperLight Series – Active Optical Cables (AOC) for 4K resolution applications. These cables support the extension of DisplayPort 1.4 signals with aggregate data rates up to 32.4 Gbps. (HBR3) and are HDCP 1.4 / 2.2 compliant. They support resolutions up to 8K / 30Hz (4:4:4) for cable lengths up to 50 meters (164 feet) and 4K / 60Hz (4:4:4) for cables up to 100 meters (328 feet).
Constructed using a hybrid design of four POF (Polyfluorinated Optical Fiber) and six copper wires, plenum-rated HyperLight cables are rugged, lightweight and highly flexible, with a minimum bend radius of just two millimeters. The cables have two removable DisplayPort docking connectors may be detached, revealing a connector cross-section that measures just 10 by 12.4 millimeters. The docking connectors include a locking pin plus an optional pulling sleeve, make the cables easy to install in narrow conduits or in plenum air spaces.
The high speed DisplayPort signals are transmitted over four optical fibers, which DVIGear says make them immune to interference from environmental noise. The optical transmission path provides a very low RFI / EMI profile, which allows the cables to be installed in sensitive applications with strict security requirements. The cables draw power from the connected DisplayPort source, eliminating the need for an external power supply. These cables are available now in a wide range of cable lengths up to 100 meters (328 feet).
