EMCORE’s HDMI Active Fiber Cable (AFC-HDMI2) provides true Plug and Play, uncompressed connectivity for distributing high-definition HDMI beyond the normal reach of copper cables. This 4K UHD compatible fiber cable is available in standard lengths up to 100 meters and supports applications for HDMI extension from set-top boxes, DVD players, Blu-ray players and video game consoles to large displays, including projectors and 4K UHD capable TV’s. With AFC-HDMI2 , users can take advantage of the latest advances in HDMI technology including 3D, 2K4K/UHD resolution and deep colors from an HDMI or DVI port (with passive adapter).
AFC-HDMI2 is thinner, lighter and more flexible than copper or even standard optical cables while providing transparent EDID and HDCP support without signal attenuation. Additionally, the cable materials are plenum rated for pulling within plenum or tight wall spaces.
The optical fiber cable delivers several advantages over copper cabling by reducing the risk of EMI and RFI degradation for stable performance when used in typically high interference environments such as in data centers, operating rooms or manufacturing facilities where high resolution and 24/7 operation for displays is required.
AFC-HDMI2 does not require any external power supplies, but is powered exclusively by the HDMI source. It also consumes very low power, therefore any HDMI source can provide sufficient power to send HDMI video and audio over the fiber cable without the use of external power supplies.
