More Details

Crestron® HDMI® over Fiber Transmitters and Receivers deliver professional-grade digital HD AV signal extension for use in the home, classroom, auditorium, or corporate boardroom. Without any special setup or configuration, the HD-TX1-F transmitter works with an HD-RX1-F receiver [1] to enable wire runs up to 1000 feet (300 m) over a single multimode fiber strand [2]. The use of fiber not only facilitates long wire runs, but is also ideal for wiring to outdoor devices and between buildings, providing optical isolation against ground loops, lightning surges, and other electrical disturbances. The HD-TX1-F simultaneously handles high-definition digital video and audio, RS-232, and IR signals.

Robust HD Signal Extension
Crestron HDMI over Fiber technology delivers ultra-reliable extension of uncompressed video and computer signals. The HD-TX1-F handles video resolutions up to Full HD 1080p60, and computer resolutions up to UXGA and WUXGA, with support for HDCP and Deep Color. Audio capabilities include support for Dolby Digital®, DTS®, and uncompressed 7.1 linear PCM. In addition to HDMI, the HD-TX1-F is also compatible with DVI and Dual-Mode DisplayPort sources using an appropriate adapter or interface cable [3].

...And Control Too!
In addition to video and audio, the HD-TX1-F provides for the extension of control signals for a true one-wire AV interface solution. Both IR and bidirectional RS-232 control signals may be routed using the HD-TX1-F to control a display device or other equipment.

Comprehensive without Complication
Crestron HDMI over Fiber affords a very dependable signal extension solution that's simple to implement. No special configuration or programming is required — just connect your source and display and enjoy high-quality HD video and audio from across the room — or from another entire building. The HD-TX1-F is housed in an attractive, compact enclosure, with provisions for mounting to any flat surface, or to one rail of a 19" EIA equipment rack.

Crestron offers the fiber optic cable, connectors, and termination kit for a complete, easy wiring solution. A range of professional AV interface cables and wall plates is also available to complement the HD-TX1-F for a total custom installation solution.[1]
