Inneos’ Real4K™ Optical Adapter Wins Residential Systems' "Best of Show" Award at CEDIA 2017

PLEASANTON, Calif. – October 2, 2017 – Inneos’ Real4K™ 18 Gbps Optical Adapter was selected by NewBay Media’s
Residential Systems, as a “Best of Show” winner at CEDIA 2017. These awards honor outstanding products exhibited at the
show. A panel of anonymous professional integrator and journalist judges evaluated the entries based on written submissions
and visual inspections on the CEDIA show floor.

“CEDIA 2017 reflected continued energy from home technology professionals, with a flurry of innovative product
introductions. Our panel of home tech pro judges was very impressed with this year’s winners, including the Inneos
Real4K™ Optical Adapter,” stated Jeremy Glowacki, Editorial Director of Residential Systems. “The Real4K™ product is
unique in that it delivers 18Gbps over standard multimode fiber that can be cut to length and terminated in the field. Most
optical cables are fixed length and have to be pulled through walls,” added Glowacki.

“The industry is shifting to fiber solutions as home theater experts face bandwidth limitations of copper cabling in a 4K
world. They struggle with the complexity of knowing what 4K features will work at different distances over copper,” said
Todd Whitaker, SVP of Sales and Marketing at Inneos. “Surprisingly, as 4K enters the mainstream, fiber has become the
simpler solution because it solves the bandwidth and distance problems,” continued Whitaker.

Real4K™ 18Gbps Optical Adapter

  • Simple “plug and play” dongles that convert electrical HDMI signals to optical signals and back again.
  • Transmit full 18 Gbps HDMI over distances of 1000 meters (typical).
  • Can be upgraded in the field to Real8K™ optical adapters when they become available.
