The AV integration industry seems to be increasingly embracing fiber for AV distribution — a trend that seems poised to continue at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE 2019) where KanexPro is debuting the KanexPro HDMI 2.0 Fiber Optic Extender. The solutions provider says the product, EXT-4KFIBERPRO, is designed to transmit 4K video, audio and control over fiber with HDR, Dolby Vision and Audio Return Channel (ARC).

According to the provider of connectivity solutions to the IT and AV markets, the KanexPro HDMI 2.0 Fiber Optic Extender is designed for sensitive, secure and robust transmissions of A/V signals through fiber optic connection.
