Genesis XD is an all-in-one, modular, non-blocking, full cross-point matrix switch platform that can switch and convert any signal input to any signal output with scaling to deliver seamless connectivity to one or multiple HD displays. The new Genesis compatible Optiva OTP-1HDMI2A-USB-ETH transmitter and receive provide multimedia extension of 4K video along with audio, Ethernet and USB for keyboard and mouse over fiber. The OTP-1HDMI2A-USB-ETH is a single slot fiber extender that supports the HDMI 1.4b and Audio Return Channel (ARC). It also supports stereo analog audio, 10/100 Ethernet and USB for keyboard and mouse control. A single fiber cable can extend these signals up to 100 meters away.

The Optiva OTC-HDMI2A-USB-ETH provides multimedia extension of 4K video along with audio, Ethernet and USB for keyboard and mouse over CATx/HDBaseT. The OTC-HDMI2A-USB-ETH is a single CATx/HDBaseT extender that supports HDMI 1.4b and Audio Return Channel (ARC).

All Genesis compatible Optiva transmitter and receiver modules can be used for simple point-to-point connectivity, or for point-to-multipoint systems by connecting them to our Genesis XD matrix switches utilizing compatible Genesis fiber or CATx/HDBaseT modules.
