To create the ideal all-in-one solution for HDMI signal extension over the best fiber optic cabling on the market, pro A/V electronics manufacturer SmartAVI and fiber optic cable manufacturer Cleerline Technology Group have joined forces. Using SmartAVI’s HFX HDMI extender and Cleerline’s SSF™ multimode fiber optic cables, systems architects can implement an uncompressed, high-quality HDMI routing solution that breaks the distance boundaries of HDMI signals.

The key is Cleerline’s unique fiber optic cables, which can be bent and kinked in ways that no other fiber optic cables can. Using a proprietary patented polymer and years of research and development, the company’s cables offer 10,000 times the “bendability” of its competitors’ products, allowing users to use it in situations they previously couldn’t use fiber optics.

Similarly, SmartAVI’s HFX HDMI extender provides the most reliable and user-friendly device to transmit uncompressed HDMI signals, with support for resolutions up to 4K. With extensive testing and research, the HFX provides the most dependable point-to-point extension of HDMI signals available on the market today. And since HDMI connections transmit audio as well, there’s no need for any additional audio devices or cabling to get full high-definition video and audio.

“This partnership with Cleerline enables us to deliver a fully packaged product that is highly flexible and fits virtually all users’ needs,” said Albert Cohen, CEO of SmartAVI. “This is the most effective, reliable and affordable solution for HDMI signal extension on the market.”

The pairing of these two industry leaders will create the all-in-one HDMI extension solution that had previously challenged and limited integrators since HDMI signals arrived in the market.

“Fiber is the next step in all forms of connectivity, and it’s ideal for high definition signals,” said Rick Sant, a representative for Cleerline. “SmartAVI offers the HDMI extension products we’ve been waiting for.”
