In Q4, Lightware plans to ship the UBEX optical scaling extender with optional USB HID and USB 2.0 extension. The design’s new optical configuration supports 4K UHD@60Hz 4:4:4 uncompressed signal extension with what the company describes as “latency-free multistreaming.” Utilizing visually lossless compression (compression levels can be set by the user), UBEX can extend two UHD signals over a single 10 Gbps port. The maximum reachable distance can be adjusted to vary between 400 m and 100 km, depending on the type of SFP+ optical modules installed. UBEX has a bandwidth of up to 20 Gbps depending on application. UBEX can work in a complex network with a standard Ethernet switch, or as point-to-point.
