Magenta Research® by tvONE (www.tvone.com), a leading designer and manufacturer of cutting-edge video and multimedia processing equipment, announces the shipment of new low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) active optical cables. The new active optical cables feature both DisplayPort 1.4™ (MG-AOC-883) and HDMI 2.0 (MG-AOC-663) options, from lengths of 10 to 100 meters (328ft).
The low smoke zero halogen cables provide a simple yet powerful solution for extending high resolution signals over long distances in applications where smoke emission and toxic fumes pose a risk to human health in the event of a fire. These plug and play cables support up to 4K60 4:4:4 with no compression or latency up to 328ft (100m) and without the need for external power.
“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 LSZH 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) available in plenum and non-plenum, as well as the newly added armored active optical cables (MG-AOC-66A & MG-AOC-88A) perfect for rental & staging applications, where space, distance and safety is key. The cables provide a simple, robust solution for extending ultra-high resolution over long distances.
