The Extron FOXBOX Tx DVI Plus Fiber Optic Transmitter provides long haul transmission of DVI, audio, and RS-232 control signals over a single fiber. Engineered for reliability and exceptional high resolution image performance, it uses Extron all-digital technology to deliver perfect pixel-for-pixel transmission of DVI computer-video images up to 1920x1200 resolution, including HDTV 1080p/60. Designed specifically for AV systems, the transmitter also includes many integrator-friendly features such as an EDID emulation mode, RS-232 control, and real-time system monitoring. The compact, low profile enclosure of the FOXBOX Tx DVI Plus allows for discreet installation in a lectern or beneath a table.

The FOXBOX Tx DVI Plus is part of the extensive FOX Series of fiber optic products from Extron and is compatible with the FOX Series HDMI, DVI Plus, DVI, and VGA receivers. The transmitter can be used for simple point-to-point applications or in combination with FOX Series distribution amplifiers and matrix switchers to handle the most challenging AV system designs, from a simple conference room to an enterprise-wide fiber optic distribution system.

The transmitter is ideal for a wide range of applications requiring long distance delivery of high resolution content with the highest quality. Because transmission of content is inherently secure and immune to outside interference, fiber applications are favored in government, military, and medical environments. The FOXBOX Tx DVI Plus features industry standard LC-type connectivity.

The transmitter is available in two versions, multimode and singlemode. The FOXBOX Tx DVI Plus MM supports multimode fiber at 850 nm, which is typically used within buildings or facilities with moderate-range transmission distances. The FOXBOX Tx DVI Plus SM supports singlemode as well as multimode fiber at 1310 nm. Singlemode fiber offers long-range transmission capability over extreme distances of up to 30 km (18.75 miles). It is used in very large facilities such as airports and stadiums, as well as connecting over very long distances between facilities such as university campuses.

The FOXBOX DVI Plus transmitter accepts and digitizes unbalanced stereo audio and RS-232 control signals to be sent along with the DVI-D signals. EDID emulation ensures that the transmitter properly communicates with the DVI source.

The transmitter and its corresponding receiver can be controlled and configured using the RS-232 port on the transmitter. With a second fiber link installed, functions for both units can be controlled at either location. Since the units are typically situated far apart, this capability adds considerable versatility, enabling adjustment and calibration of audio at the receiver. It also allows for verification of fiber link status between the units as well as the presence of DVI-D and audio input signals at the transmitter.
