This enterprise fiber platform supports HDMI 2.0 data rates up to 18 Gbps and is HDCP 2.2 compliant

Extron has announced the FOX3 Series, the latest high-performance family of fiber optic extenders and matrix switchers for end-to-end distribution of 4K video, audio, control, USB, and 3D sync. This enterprise fiber platform supports HDMI 2.0 data rates up to 18 Gbps and is HDCP 2.2 compliant for the secure transmission of uncompressed 4K/60 4:4:4 video over two fibers or mathematically lossless video over one fiber. FOX3 extenders feature built-in USB for KVM applications while Extron-exclusive Vector 4K scaling technology ensures best-in-class image quality. Delivering exceptional reliability and advanced capabilities such as audio breakaway, audio embedding/de-embedding, DMP and Dante integration, the FOX3 Series meets the demands of any mission-critical environment. 

“We are excited to set the new standard in fiber-optic video distribution with FOX3,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. “By supporting mathematically lossless 4K over a single fiber, we give our customers the option of reducing their infrastructure requirements while also delivering uncompressed 4K when the highest quality image is required.”

The FOX3 Series distributes AV signals through a wide selection of modular matrix switchers from 8×8 to 320×320 with enterprise-class features like redundant power supplies, hot-swappable modules, and Ethernet monitoring. Featuring new system-level control options and integrator-friendly features, FOX3 systems are easier than ever to configure and manage. FOX3 systems deliver unrivaled performance and reliability to satisfy the demands of even the most discerning users.
