Black Box VGA/Stereo-Audio Fiber Extender Kit
(AC1021A-XMIT and AC1021A-REC)

Transmit audio and video signals over a single fiber strand with this transmitter and receiver kit.

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 the 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.
