Smart-AVI, Inc., a world-leading innovator in the fields of digital signage content creation, management and delivery solutions through hardware and software, has unveiled its versatile FDX-AV multimedia signal extender.
The nature of the optic fiber allows for DVI-D signals to be transmitted and extended much further than ever before via traditional native wire cabling and connections, which is a critical advantage that Smart-AVI has integrated into its digital signage solutions products.

Equipped with DVI-D connectors for multi-mode operation, this product is the perfect fiber solution for multimedia/digital signage extension needs. Each package comes with two units – a transmitter and a receiver, capable of extending stereo audio, high-resolution DVI-D video and RS-232 control signals as well at distances up to 1,400 feet with optimal quality and performance.
