Designed for rental and professional use, the Lightware DVI-OPT 220-Pro series extenders can transmit DVI-D signals over multimode fiber cables for up to 2500 m distance. Using Single Fiber Technology the DVI-D signal is transmitted over one multimode 50/125 fiber core. Sources and display devices are galvanically isolated against ground loops and hum effects, and no delay occurs in the signal, the video image is transported without any frame latency. The Neutrik OpticalCON or ST fiber connectors ensure reliable operation in professional environments. The OpticalCON connectors are rugged, dust proof and very reliable, compatible with standard LC connectors.

Cross compatibility between Lightware fiber products is ensured thanks to our attentive design. In a standalone application DVI-OPT-220-Pro series can work together simply, but with Lightware’s Hybrid Modular matrix concept, it is even possible to connect these extender boxes directly to the matrix router using an MX-DVI-OPT series input or output board.
