Meet the new DVI-7380, DVIGear's high-performance, cost-effective, DisplayPort Optical Extender. Providing long-distance extension over a single fiber cable, it is designed to meet demanding system requirements, while supporting a wide array of signal types and ultra-high resolutions up to 8K (UHD) at 30Hz (4:4:4).

Multiple Signals Extended over a Single Cable

The DVI-7380 (opens in new tab) supports DisplayPort 1.4 HBR3 signals with data rates up to 8.1Gbps/channel (32.4Gbps aggregate), resolutions up to 8K/30p, embedded audio, bi-directional IR, RS-232 and two 10/100 BaseT Ethernet ports, using only a single fiber optic cable. It can extend these signals over cable distances of more than 5.0 miles (> 8,000 meters) using Single-Mode Fiber and up to 1000 ft. (~ 300 meters) using Multi-Mode Fiber.

Advanced Fiber Optic Technology

The extender set consists of an optical transmitter unit and an optical receiver unit. The transmitter converts the AV signals into light pulses for transmission over a single strand of Multi-Mode or Single-Mode fiber optic cable. The receiver converts the light pulses back to AV signals for the display, as well as other downstream devices. By using advanced fiber optic technology, without any compression, this product provides superior picture quality over greater distances than other extension methods, such as copper cables or CAT-X extenders. Moreover, optical fiber transmission is immune to environmental signal noise, thus providing a low RFI/EMI profile for sensitive applications where security is an important concern.
