One of the most reliable ways to transmit HDMI signals over long distances is the use of fiber-optic technologies.
Atlona’s AT-HDF30S (Transmitter) and AT-HDF30R (Receiver) units are reasonably priced, fiber-optic HDMI baluns that the company says offer the ability to transmit HDMI signals nearly 1,400 feet.
The 3D-friendly HDMI transmission solution supports 1920x1080p (high definition) video content, and the HDCP (high-bandwidth digital content protection) compliant transmission solution can also be used with the company’s DVI-to-HDMI adapter to enable a wider possibility of applications.
In addition to supporting WUXGA (1920x1200 @ 60Hz), the UL/CE/FCC certified product is also capable of carrying bi-directional RS-232 data to enable communication between devices.
Check with your local custom electronics pro to see how these product might be incorporated into your home, and check www.atlona.com/3D for more info.
