Real4K™ Optical Adapters and Extenders

Optical adapters and extenders are unique products that use standard optical fiber

Real4K Optical Adapter:

Full 4K resolution, with complete installation flexibility.

Inneos’ Real4K Optical Adapters are an award winning 18G optical solution that is “designed for deployment”. Run fiber the same way you install category cabling and then connect Real4K Optical Adapters wherever you need them. Unlike fixed length optical cables, Real4K Optical Adapters connect using standard multimode fiber, which can be pulled and terminated in the field. Standard SC connectors and inexpensive optical wall plates make this a better way to deploy 4K video.

Real4K Optical Extender:

ARC and IR support plus longer HDMI cables.

Inneos’ Real4K Optical Extenders are an addition to the product family with HDMI® technology, Audio Return Channel (ARC), and IR control.  Real4K Extenders convert electrical HDMI signals to optical signals to deliver 18Gbps uncompressed video up to 1000 meters (typical) over a single industry standard fiber.  In addition, Real4K Optical Extenders offer improved design flexibility by allowing users to attach up to 3 meters of HDMI cable to the ends of the link.

More About Extenders

Real4K Goes Head-to-Head

HDMI video extenders can limit the performance of your 4K/HDR video if they lack the bandwidth to send an uncompressed signal. Some extender solutions, such as HDBaseT and video over IP, claim to support 4K HDR and up to 18 Gbps, but they actually use compression to limit the bandwidth to 10 Gbps.

Features & Benefits

The Real4K™ Advantage

Proprietary multichannel optics deliver 18Gbps over 1000m typical (400m worst case). This means 4K/60Hz, 4:4:4, and HDR support without compression, resolution limitations, or visual compromises.

Multimode Fiber Can Be Field Terminated

Unlike other fiber solutions, multimode fiber (OM3 or OM4) can be pulled and field terminated to the desired length providing installers with unheard of flexibility.

Complete Solution

Includes HDMI transmitter and receiver, power cables, reference cable, and (optional) fixed-length OM4 fiber—everything you need to deliver a Real4K experience.

Future Proof Cabling

Real4K installations use standard multimode fiber capable of transmitting 8K signals, making your cabling infrastructure future proof. See Real8K™ solutions.

Adapters vs. Extenders

Adapters have a short HDMI cable permanently attached. Extenders can use any length HDMI cable up to 3 meters on each side.
