World's First Single Fibre DisplayPort Extender


Ground Breaking Innovations



Lightware Visual Engineering proudly presents the world’s first Single fibre DisplayPort extender: DP-OPT-TX100 and DP-OPT-RX100.

Highlight features
- DisplayPort 1.1a extension over Single Fibre
- Dual-mode DP: supports DVI and HDMI adaptors
- Up to 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution
- 10.8 Gbps datarate
- Full support of Link Training
- Compatible with Apple Cinema Display and 30” LCD displays



This pair of DisplayPort Transmitter and Receiver extends high resolution DisplayPort data, without the need of any additional copper wires. Both the High-speed Main Link lanes and the bi-directional Auxiliary Channel are extended by one single fibre. This enables long distance extension of DisplayPort, with the additional benefits of total galvanic isolation.

Lightware DP-OPT-TX100 and DP-OPT-RX100 devices extend Dual-mode DisplayPort 1.1a high resolution video and embedded audio, with optional HDCP encryption, over one multimode fibre up to 2000 m.

DisplayPort is one of the newest video interface standards introduced by VESA. Using DisplayPort, high resolution video and excellent quality audio can be transmitted. The interface's 10.8 Gbps bandwidth is capable of transmitting 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution video with full support of content protection (HDCP, DPCP).

Dual-mode DisplayPort: when connecting a DVI or HDMI display through an adaptor cable, Dual-mode DisplayPort graphic cards reconfigure their Outputs to DVI or HDMI accordingly. Lightware DisplayPort extenders support Dual-mode port extension and adaptor cables.


Single Fibre Technology makes these units fully DisplayPort 1.1a and HDCP 1.1 compliant without the need of a second fibre cable or copper connections. To simplify cabling, the bi-directional communication necessary for Link Training and HDCP handshaking, is performed on the same fibre core that transmits the video signal.

Galvanic isolation between source and display helps to avoid ground loops and hum effects. No delay occurs in the signal during optical conversion as the video image is transported without any frame latency.
