The Extron FOX3 T 101 is a compact fiber optic transmitter for long haul transmission of HDCP-compliant HDMI video with embedded audio over fiber optic cabling. Engineered for exceptional high-resolution image performance, the transmitter uses Extron all-digital technology to deliver mathematically lossless transmission of images up to 4K/60 @ 4:4:4 over a fiber optic cable. Designed specifically for AV systems, the FOX3 T 101 also includes many integrator-friendly features such as Key Minder®, EDID Minder®, internal test patterns, a USB-C configuration port, and remote configuration. A compact, low profile enclosure allows for discreet installation. 

Uncompromised Image Quality in an Efficient Design

Supporting data rates up to 18 Gbps, the FOX3 T 101 is designed to extend mathematically lossless video images over one fiber, making it ideal for mission-critical applications or any environment that requires the transmission of very high-resolution imagery. Maintaining a 60 Hz frame rate with a 4:4:4 color space provides smooth frame transitions in full-motion video and ensures the details of high-quality computer images, such as CAD drawings, are preserved.

Engineered to Streamline Integration

The FOX3 T 101 transmitter can be used with a FOX3 R 101 receiver in point‑to‑point applications or in combination with a FOX3 Series matrix switcher for an enterprise‑wide HDCP‑compliant distribution system of 4K/60 4:4:4 HDMI video signals.

To simplify integration with digital sources and displays, the FOX3 T 101 features two Extron technologies: EDID Minder and Key Minder. EDID Minder automatically manages EDID by maintaining continuous EDID communication between connected devices, ensuring that the source powers up properly and maintains optimal video output for display. 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, the built-in internal test patterns present display alignment patterns aiding in setup and configuration.

Device Setup and Management

The FOX3 T 101 offers convenient local and remote system access for configuration, operation, and monitoring. The front panel USB‑C configuration port enables system configuration without having to access the rear panel. When used with a FOX3 Series matrix switcher, the transmitter can be remotely setup and configured via the matrix switcher’s LAN port. Remote configuration is enabled with a two-fiber bidirectional connection between the matrix switcher and the transmitter.

Multimode and Singlemode Models for Design Flexibility

The FOX3 T 101 is available in multimode and singlemode models. The FOX3 T 101 MM model supports multimode fiber at 850 nm, which is typically used within buildings or facilities with moderate‑range transmission distances. The FOX3 T 101 SM supports singlemode at 1310 nm, offering long‑range transmission capability over extreme distances. It 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. The transmitter features industry-standard LC‑type connectivity. The 1" (2.5 cm) high, quarter-rack width metal enclosure is designed for discreet installation in professional AV environments.
