Inneos Real4K™
4K HDMI 2.0 Optical Extender

Inneos’ Real4K Optical Extenders are an addition to the product family with HDMI® technology, Audio Return Channel (ARC), and IR control.  Real4K Extenders convert electrical HDMI signals to optical signals to deliver 18Gbps uncompressed video up to 1000 meters (typical) over a single industry standard fiber.  In addition, Real4K Optical Extenders offer improved design flexibility by allowing users to attach up to 3 meters of HDMI cable to the ends of the link.

Features & Benefits

The Real4K™ Advantage

Proprietary multichannel optics deliver 18Gbps over 1000m typical (400m worst case). This means 4K/60Hz, 4:4:4, and HDR support without compression, resolution limitations, or visual compromises.

Multimode Fiber Can Be Field Terminated

Unlike other fiber solutions, multimode fiber (OM3 or OM4) can be pulled and field terminated to the desired length providing installers with unheard of flexibility.

Future Proof Cabling

Real4K installations use standard multimode fiber capable of transmitting 8K signals, making your cabling infrastructure future proof. See Real8K™ solutions.

Bi-directional IR support

The Real4K HDMI Optical Extenders offer option support for bi-directional IR through the use of the IR-USB power breakout cable, so just a single fiber link handles the uncompressed 4K 18 Gbps HDMI video and IR control.

Installation Made Easy with Pre-terminated Fiber

The Real4K HDMI Optical Extender kits work with industry standard SC-terminated fiber cable, so installers can pull their own and terminate in the field or simplify the job by using Inneos’ pre-terminated black OM4 plenum fiber cables designed specifically for the AV market.
