The Extron FOX II R DP Fiber Optic Extender is a receiver for long haul transmission of HDCP-compliant DisplayPort video, multi-channel audio, RS-232 control, and IR control signals over fiber optic cabling. Engineered for reliability and exceptional high resolution image performance, it uses Extron all-digital technology to deliver pixel-for-pixel DisplayPort computer-video images up to 2560x1600. The FOX II R DP brings new features to the FOX Series, including support for higher resolutions, multi-channel audio, an audio return channel, and IR. It also includes many integrator-friendly features such as Key Minder®, Auto Input Memory, audio de-embedding, internal test pattern, and real-time system monitoring.

The FOX II R DP represents the highest level of performance for the extensive FOX Series of fiber optic products from Extron. It can be used with the FOX II T DP in point-to-point applications or in combination with a FOX Series matrix switcher for an enterprise-wide HDCP-compliant distribution system of high resolution DisplayPort video, multi-channel audio, RS-232 control, and IR control signals.

To simplify integration with digital sources and displays, the DisplayPort receiver features Extron-exclusive Key Minder technology. For digital video signals with protected content, Key Minder authenticates and maintains continuous HDCP encryption to support quick and reliable switching in professional AV environments, while enabling simultaneous distribution of a single source signal to one or more displays.

In addition to DisplayPort video signals, the FOX II R DP supports multi-channel audio and an audio return channel. Multi-channel audio allows a variety of audio playback options including distribution to surround sound systems. For added flexibility, the audio return channel enables a remote audio source at or near the display to transmit stereo audio back to the transmitter for distribution and processing, eliminating the need for an additional transmitter and receiver pair.

The FOX II R DP features bidirectional RS-232 and IR ports for control of AV devices. Sources and displays can be controlled from either the transmitter or receiver end using either RS-232 or IR signals.

The fiber optic receiver is available in multimode and singlemode models. The FOX II R DP MM supports multimode fiber at 850 nm, which is typically used within buildings or facilities with moderate-range transmission distances. The FOX II R DP SM supports singlemode at 1310 nm, offering long-range transmission capability over extreme distances of several kilometers or miles.

The FOX II R DP can be used in very large facilities such as airports and stadiums, and for connecting over very long distances between facilities such as university campuses. Because transmission of content is inherently secure and immune to outside interference, fiber applications are particularly favored in government, military, and medical environments. For enhanced security, the extender can be set up to trigger an external control system for immediate notification if a fiber link is lost. It features industry standard LC-type connectivity. A compact, low profile enclosure allows for discreet installation.
