Two innovators in fiber optic technologies have joined forces to deliver the fastest, longest and most flexible HDMI-over-fiber-optics extension technology.

North Hollywood, CA (January 21, 2015) – 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.”

With eight inputs, local and remote outputs, and support for resolutions up to 4K Ultra HD, the newly released SPS-1000 Smart Presentation Switcher offers incredible flexibility for multimedia presentations.

North Hollywood, CA (January 30, 2015) – Interfacing a wide variety of electronics with HDMI displays for audio-visual presentations is easier than ever with the new SPS-1000 Smart Presentation Switch from SmartAVI. This eight-port, multi-platform presentation device features HDMI, DVI, VGA and RCA inputs to accommodate nearly any kind of content player, from PCs to Smartphones to live cameras, just to name a few. With scaling technology built in, users’ content will look its best, no matter what connection is being used to interface with the switcher.

The SPS-1000 offers a local HDMI output as well as a remote HDMI output with the SPS-RX extender, which can extend signals up to 325 feet from the switcher over an inexpensive Cat5e/6/7 cable using HDBaseT technology. Breaking this challenging distance barrier is key to improving connectivity in a boardroom, classroom or other meeting environment. The device features four HDMI inputs, two VGA inputs, one DVI input and one RCA input, making it easy to connect virtually any content player to an HDMI display.

To get the most out of the latest in ultra HD content, two HDMI inputs on the SPS-1000 can bypass any scaling, which allows the device to support input and output resolutions up to 4K Ultra HD (@30Hz). For the other inputs, supported resolutions and scaling go up to 1920x1080 (@60Hz).

The SPS-1000 is designed to provide a variety of control options to fit virtually any application. With RS-232 and LAN connections, users can control the device from a remote laptop.

New HDMI POE Extenders over Cat5/6 from SmartAVI Give Users Flexibility in Inexpensive Signal Extension

May 13, 2015 Los Angeles, CA -- For uncompressed Power over Ethernet (POE) HDMI signal extension, the new series of extenders from SmartAVI provide the answer users need. With the new HDX-POE, users can extend HDMI,IR and Power signals  over single cable up to 250 feet. Using POE allows for transferring electrical power via the same cable which gives users the freedom to install with no power at a remote place. The HDX-POE extenders also enable the user to choose the POE direction from transmitter to receiver or vice versa. This device also supports IR extension.

SmartAVI developed these products to expand its line of HDMI extenders with guidance from customer feedback. With the HDX-POE, users will find an affordable device that utilizes HDBaseT technology. The remote power technology, gives users an aggressively-priced and user-friendly system to manage wire organization.

A key feature of the HDX-POE is its use of inexpensive cat5/cat6 cables. These are the same cables that people rely on to deliver LAN and Internet signals. For the extension of HD signals, cat5/cat6 cables provide users with an economical way to send crystal clear HDMI signals quickly and effectively.

HDX-POE can be considered a further enhancement to the existing HDbaseT standards.  It doesn't, however, require many changes to the older Ethernet cabling or equipment with the exception of adding a power injector to the cat5/cat6 cables. This technology can also be powered by plugging in any side of the extender or plugging it into both sides. 

The biggest benefit of the HDX-POE is it allows for a centralized power backup. This helps all the extenders to be operated from a centralized point. Also, if further HDX-POE were to be added, they can be directly linked to the center point.

“Users need the freedom and flexibility to create the right signal flow for their needs, and our newest signal extenders give systems architects lots of options,” said Albert Cohen, CEO of SmartAVI. “Even better, these are cost-effective solutions that are easy to implement.”
