HDMI video extension is now easier and more affordable than ever with the new HFX HDMI extender over fiber from SmartAVI. This compact unit, which includes a transmitter and receiver, extends HDMI video up to 1,000 feet over multimode fiber optic cables. The HFX delivers the ideal way to improve the flexibility of HDMI signal management in nearly any environment, with resolutions up to 4K.

One of the biggest issues systems architects and end users experience with HDMI video is the restriction of cable length. For the most part, HDMI cables are limited to about 40 feet, which means the source and the monitor have to quite close to one another. There are countless uses and applications for HDMI sources and monitors that require many times that signal length, and the HFX by SmartAVI provides a clean and efficient solution to this problem, with support for 4K Ultra HD, 1080p and 3D video.

The HFX delivers uncompressed signal, so there is no quality loss due to signal extension. Furthermore, fiber optic cables provide the best medium for signal extension because they are resistant to electromagnetic and radio frequency interference. That means the HFX offers the most reliable long-distance HD video extension on the market today.

“The HFX provides a user-friendly and easy-to-implement solution for extending HDMI signals,” said Albert Cohen, CEO of SmartAVI. “Coupled with the low price that our customers expect, this new HDMI extender over fiber is a must-have device for a wide variety of applications.”
