Product Features

  • Ideal for multimedia distribution applications, this easy-to-install extender kit provides crystal-clear video and audio transmissions.
  • Sends high-resolution RGB and stereo audio up to 750 meters (2460.6 ft.) over multimode fiber optic cable or up to 30 kilometers (18.6 mi.) over single-mode fiber optic cable.
  • Requires only a single fiber strand.
  • Transmits VGA, SVGA, XGA and WXGA.


  • Supports HDTV resolutions of 480p, 720p, and 1080i (RGBHV format only).
  • Easy to install—requires no adjustments, equalization, or de-skewing.
  • Digital processing ensures crystal-clear transmission with no color pixel skewing.

  • Do you need to send high-resolution RGB and audio signals over single-mode or multimode fiber? Then look no further than Black Box's RGBHV/Stereo-Audio Fiber Extender Kit! It works in point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, and drop-and-repeat configurations.

    This fiber extender kit is ideal for applications in which you need to keep your audience informed and up-to-date, including:

  • Broadcast studios where you need additional video and audio capacity.

  • Corporate theaters for presentations and important company information.

  • Stadiums for live game coverage everywhere in the facility.

  • Airport kiosks with flight and retail information.

  • Stores with sales, special offers, and other important information for your customers.

  • Medical facilities to share images and observe procedures.

  • Network operations centers.

  • Secure facilities.

  • And many more!

  • Functionality
    The fiber extender kit is interoperable with our other Black Box RGBHV/Stereo-Audio Fiber transmitters and receivers. You can use each receiver with each transmitter, so nearly any configuration you design will work.

    By operating in the 1310-nm wavelength over multimode or single-mode fiber, this unit reduces optical loss and enables you to get maximum distance in your application—up to 750 meters (2460.6 ft.) over multimode cable and a whopping 30 kilometers (18.6 mi) with an optical loss budget of 15 dB over single-mode cable. It maintains high-resolution video integrity with uncompressed, unscaled 24-bit RGB processing, and because the audio signals are also sent over fiber, you're not limited by copper distance restrictions or signal degradation.

    The receiver features a simple set of LEDs that give you immediate status updates, and the system doesn't require any special software or drivers—just plug it in and get started.
