Anaheim, California (June 17, 2011) - Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the FOXBOX SR HDMI, a high performance fiber optic-to-HDMI scaling receiver for the FOX Series of fiber optic transmitters. It accepts a fiber optic signal with audio, RS-232 control, and HDCP-compliant HDMI, DVI, VGA, or YUV video, scaling the video to the optimal output resolution for the display. Engineered for reliability and exceptional high resolution image performance, the FOXBOX SR HDMI supports resolutions up to 1920x1200, including HDTV 1080p/60. Available in multimode and singlemode models, it also provides many integrator-friendly features such as Key Minder® for continuous authentication of HDCP compliance, audio de-embedding, Auto Input Memory, internal test patterns, and a compact enclosure for discreet placement. The FOXBOX SR HDMI is ideal for fiber optic installations that require scaling of high resolution content with the highest quality.

"AV system designers and integrators now have a simple solution for scaling high-resolution video in fiber optic systems," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron.
