Highlight features

  • DisplayPort 1.1a + Keyboard + Mouse fiber extender
  • Plug and Play – no drivers required
  • Up to UHD and 4096x2400@30Hz pixel resolution
  • HDCP 1.1 compliant extension over one multimode fiber
  • Compatible with Apple LED Cinema Display
  • Support of the latest Mac laptop and desktop computers with Thunderbolt port
  • USB HID* extension of maximum two devices over the same multimode fiber


Lightware DP-OPT-TX150 and DP-OPT-RX150 devices extend Dual-mode DisplayPort 1.1a high resolution video and embedded audio with optional HDCP encryption plus USB HID* over one multimode fiber up to 1100 m.

DisplayPort one of the newest video interface standards. Using DisplayPort, high resolution video and excellent quality audio can be transmitted. The interface's 10.8 Gbps bandwidth is capable of transmitting 2560x1600@60Hz pixel resolution video with full support of content protection (HDCP). UHD and 4Kx2K resolution can be achieved up to 30Hz frame rate.

Intelligent HID Emulation is provided for two devices with full transparency. The special HID devices - including
keyboard and mouse - are emulated by the extender and transparently transferred to the computer with the result
that no drivers are required for the proper functionality, it’s as easy as Plug & Play.
DP-OPT-TX150 has 2 extra local USB ports with a built-in HUB and can be connected to the PC/Mac with a single
USB cable.

Dual-mode DisplayPort: when connecting a DVI or HDMI display through an adaptor cable, Dual-mode DisplayPort graphic cards reconfigure their outputs to DVI or HDMI accordingly. Lightware DisplayPort extenders support Dual-mode port extension and adaptor cables.

Thunderbolt: Lightware’s DisplayPort extenders can be used with Thunderbolt sources and devices. The extender pair and the DisplayPort monitor have to be placed at the end of the Thunderbolt chain. Apple Thunderbolt Display is not supported.

Single Fiber Technology makes these units fully DisplayPort 1.1a and HDCP 1.1 compliant without the need of a second fiber cable or copper connections. To simplify cabling, the bi-directional communication - necessary for DisplayPort Link Training, HDCP handshaking and USB transfer - is performed on the same fiber core that transmits the video signal. Both receiver and transmitter are remote configurable from either side through the mini USB connector.
