RT Com Updates Fiber Extenders
RT Com USA announced the introduction of a new version of its OBHD HDMI and OBCA DVI fiber-optic extension products.
RT Com USA announced the introduction of a new version of its OBHD HDMI and OBCA DVI fiber-optic extension products. The updated products offer the same reliability and compatibility of the original models and add versatility and lower cost for deployment, according to the company.
The OBHD-2C and OBCA-2C operate with two strands of multimode or singlemode fiber-optic cable, and company officials said the transmitter and receiver prices are comparable to common Cat-X solutions.
The new solutions from RT Com provide fiber-optic transmitter/receiver pairs that support video resolutions up to 1080p at 60Hz with 36-bit deep color and high bit-rate audio, and computer signals up to 1920x1200.
Both solutions are more compact than their predecessors. The only hurdle an installer needs to overcome, according to the company, is the fear of fiber-optic termination. But officials point out that many field termination kits tout completed fiber terminations in less time than it takes to terminate a BNC connector. Not only that, but fiber optic cable prices are now down to the range of good RGB cable.
