EMCORE’s new AFC-DP, 4K DisplayPort Active Fiber Cable is the most cost-effective, power-efficient digital multimedia extension solution to deliver DisplayPort 1.2a signals up to 70 meters to remote HD displays at resolutions up to 4K@60Hz (3840×2160 & 4096×2160).
The AFC-DP is available in standard lengths from 10 meters up to 70 meters and is designed to draw current from the source device, so no additional power supply is needed to power the cable. The cable is thin (3.4 mm), light and robust (500N pulling and crush load strength) and employs a hybrid cable design in which multimode optical fibers carry the high resolution video payload at speeds up to 21.6 Gbps. Additionally, insulated copper wires are used for powering the cable as well as extending the low speed DPCD, HDCP and EDID signals.
The AFC-DP 4K incorporates the latest advances in DisplayPort 1.2a technology by supporting not only 4K@60Hz video, but also the highest quality audio with up to 8 channels of 16 or 24 bit linear PCM at 32 to 192 KHz sampling rates. The AFC-DP is plenum-rated for ease of installation through tight wall spaces and conduit. The cable jacket covers all U.S. and EU flame-retardant requirements with low smoke, halogen-free CMP-OF plenum. The AFC-DP also has the advantages of reduced risk of EMI and RFI degradation compared to conventional copper cables for stable performance in typically high-interference environments where high-resolution and 24/7 operation is required.
