05/04/2013

Send HDMI Content Over Extreme Long Distances of Up to 20 km Using One Single-Mode Fiber Optic Cable

Online PR News – 04-May-2013 – New Taipei City – ATEN International, a leading designer and manufacturer of advanced connectivity and Professional AV solutions, today announced the availability of a new series of fiber optic HDMI extension products designed to deliver full HD-1080p and 3D video content and applications across long distances.

The product series includes the VE882 which supports distances of up to 600 meters (2000 feet) and the VE892 for distances of 20 kilometers (12 miles). Both are ideal for various applications requiring long distance transmission of high quality HDMI content, such as government, airport, military, university campuses, industrial monitoring applications and large-scale conference sites.

A point-to-point solution, the VE882 and VE892 take advantage of single-mode and require only one fiber optic cable for the connection of transmitter and receiver units, providing easy and quick installation and long-range extension of HDMI signals. Through its compact, small form-factor pluggable modules, both products simplify the maintenance process and reduce administration costs.

Each product utilizes the unique FPGA design which offers clock regeneration that ensures exceptional high resolution video performance. Engineered for reliability and long distance transmission, the VE882 and VE892 uses fiber optic technology to eliminate signal loss between transmitter and receiver units and is immune to electromagnetic interference.

“Fiber optics provide a greater level of security than Cat 5 cabling, especially over long distances,” explained Kevin Chen, President of ATEN International. “With the availability of the VE882 and VE892, ATEN offers two cost-effective and highly secure solutions to leverage HDMI video and without compromising performance. Additionally, these products overcome the length restrictions of standard HDMI cables, which are useful in data sensitive facilities and networks.”

Rack-mountable and hot-pluggable, the VE882 and VE892 combine a transmitter and receiver for extending HDMI, RS-232 and IR signals utilizing a single fiber optic cable. Compared to other solutions, the VE882 and VE892 offer the best price-to-value in terms of video quality and extension distance.
