In signal data transmission, we often hear optical modules, optical fibers, optical cables and other devices; in this article, I will introduce another data transmission product – optical fiber extender. So, what exactly is a fiber optic extender? What are its applications? Let’s find out more about it next!


        What is an HDMI fiber optic extender?

        HDMI fiber optic extender is a transmission device used to extend the signal, solve the problem that HDMI audio and video signals cannot be transmitted over long distances, and ensure the quality of signal transmission. The extender is generally divided into a sending end and a receiving end. The HDMI fiber optic extender adopts 10-bit digital uncompressed technology, and the transmitting end is responsible for the acquisition of signals. Generally, the long-distance transmission is carried out through optical fibers, up to 80KM. The receiver is responsible for decoding the signal and assigning ports. Optical transceiver transmission has the advantages of small attenuation, wide frequency band, strong anti-interference, high security performance, small size and light weight, so it has incomparable advantages in long-distance transmission and special environment.
