There is a change in transmitting data streams over distance. We are even getting close to what is possible to send using electricity. The new generation formats and bandwidth requirements are extremely challenging and electrical properties are limiting the desired transfer speeds and radio frequencies from various domestic wireless appliances expose the even more fragile bit stream to malicious interference. Our homes are not the most favorable place for the tiny bits.
There is a media far more immune to interference – LIGHT. Fiber optics are today the only possible ultra-high speed data transfer bus in practice for digital highways (e.g. domestic broadband, inter-city and nation-wide data networks) and have also been used for many years in specific interfaces in the multimedia industry such as TosLink. Further light has a very beneficial additional feature, it is by nature galvanically isolated from the electrical devices, thus less likely to distributing interference.
Now we face a giant leap in data transfer speed with the arrival of new video format resolutions and fiber optics is consequently making its way in. Supra AOC (Active Optical Cable) HDMI combine optic and electric transfer in a way that secures a 4K Ultra 3840 x 2160 @ 60Hz signal up to a staggering 100 meter!
Supra AOC contains active control circuits converting the HDMI output to optics and back again, discreetly incorporated in the Supra proprietary gold plated shielded metal housing connectors. Additionally the AOC concept are completely Plug&Play, do not require any drivers or external power source – a very neat installation, if we may say so ourselves.
So extend your freedom of installation and your future, using Supra AOC, setting new standards of HDMI transfer speeds and distances!
