Gefen HDMI extender

Gefen has released its latest connectivity product, a fiber extender that can be used to transmit an HDMI v1.3 signal up to 330 meters (~1000 feet), for applications requiring HDTV distribution through large venues. The system integrates six lasers to serialize the signal, with support for 1080p HD and compliance with TMDS and HDCP standards. The sender unit is connected to the receiver unit using a single fiber optic cable that can send the HDTV signal with zero delay, according to the company.

The product also supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio multi-channel audio codecs. An IR back channel can be sent via CAT-5 cable to provide local control, while an RS-232 port is also provided.

The HDMI 1.3 fiber extender is available directly from the company for $1500.
