HyperLight Active Optical Cables are engineered from the ground up for superior performance and reliability with MTBF >150,000 hours. This new generation of advanced Active Optical Cables use plenum-rated plastic optical fibers (POF). They are lightweight and highly flexible yet robust and durable. HyperLight cables can support up to 8K resolution and cable lengths up to 100 meters (328 ft.) For longer distances, a range of optical extenders can span distances of several miles and have provisions for detachable optical cables, which can be custom ordered with any length desired. HyperLight cables support DisplayPort 1.4 and Mini DisplayPort. They are fully HDCP 1.4 / 2.2 compliant and support signals with aggregate data rates up to 32.4 Gbps. (HBR3). These features enable HyperLight cables to support very high-resolution applications at 4K / 60Hz (4:4:4) and 8K / 30Hz (4:4:4) with cable lengths up to 100 meters. HyperLight cables are terminated with low profile Mini DisplayPort (mDP) connectors that measure less than 8×11 mm. This narrow crosssection makes it very easy to pull these cables through conduit or other tight spaces. The cables also include two detachable docking connectors that allow them to plug into fullsize DisplayPort receptacles. Plenum rated (UL CMPOF), they’re constructed using a hybrid design of 4x GOF (Glass Optical Fiber) and 6x copper wires, with a minimum bend radius of 35 millimeters. Video signals are transmitted over four optical fibers, which make them immune to interference from environmental noise. The optical transmission path provides a very low RFI / EMI profile, which allows the cables to be installed in sensitive applications with strict security requirements. The cables draw power from the connected DisplayPort source, eliminating the need for an external power supply.
