PureLink's OLC III Tx/Rx
The What: PureLink has added the HOF1 Tx/Rx and OLC III Tx/Rx One-Fiber Extension Systems for HDMI and DVI to its line of HDTools long-range extension solutions. Both models feature modular/detachable transmitter and receiver pairs that simplify integration and ensure fast, secure communication between input and output devices.

The What Else: The HOF1 Tx/Rx provides reliable extension of Ultra HD/4K HDMI, embedded audio, RS-232, and bi-directional IR to distances up to 1,000 meters, all over a single-strand multimode fiber optic cable.

The OLC III Tx/Rx extends DVI content up to 300 meters using multi-mode fiber optic cabling to deliver high speed, HD video signals, EDID data, and HDCP over fiber in real time.

The HOF1 Tx/Rx HD supports resolutions up to Ultra HD/4K (4096x2160 at 24/25/30Hz) to distances up to 1,000 meters. HDCP 2.2 compliant, it supports a variety of audio formats, including LPCM 7.1 audio, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio, features full 3D compatibility, and auto-EDID management. It has a built-in repeater to correct and enhance signal quality, and locking power supplies.

OLC III Tx/Rx HD provides DVI extension over a single-strand, multimode fiber optic cable, with reliable, long-range extension of 1080p content at distances up to 300 meters. HDCP compliant with auto EDID management, the compact, detachable transmitter/receiver module allows for easy integration.

The Bottom Line: With significantly lower attenuation than copper cables, fiber is the only sensible choice for long runs and high data rates. Fiber is immune to electromagnetic interference, providing optimal signal transmission, and is readily used in government or corporate applications where data security is crucial or required. Both the HOF1 Tx/Rx and OLC III Tx/Rx extension systems can be combined with PureLink's TotalWire two-strand or four-strand LC-terminated fiber optic cables to maintain lossless signal transport and optimum picture quality.
