), a leading designer and manufacturer of cutting-edge video and multimedia processing equipment and home of Magenta Research, announces armored and watertight rugged active optical cables are now shipping. The new armored active optical cables feature both DisplayPort 1.4 (MG-AOC-88A
) and HDMI 2.0 (MG-AOC-66A
) options, from lengths of 10, 30, or 100 meters.
The Magenta Research rugged active optical cables provide a simple yet powerful solution for extending high-resolution video over long distances with watertight ends and an armored core. These plug and play cables are available in HDMI 2.0 supporting up to 4K60 4:4:4 and DisplayPort 1.4 supporting up to 8K60 4:4:4 with no compression or latency up to 328ft (100m). Crush resistant up to 15,000lbs of force, a tensile strength of 800N and without the need for external power makes this a very flexible option for live events.
“Extending these high-resolution signals at great distances is a challenge,” says Mark Armon, Global Product Manager at tvONE, “but the most annoying part of extending something is when you only have to go 10 meters. Active optical cables offer a simple and cost-effective solution for this problem.”
The armored and watertight active optical cables expand on the existing Magenta Research active optical cable product line, featuring DisplayPort™ 1.4 active optical cables (MG-AOC-88x
) and HDMI 2.0 active optical cables (MG-AOC-66x
). Both cables are available in UL certified Plenum and provide a simple, robust solution for extending ultra-high resolution over long distances. These plug and play active optical cables are provided in a drum for easy installing and provide video and audio extension with no compression or latency from 10m to 100m (328 ft), without the need for external power.
