We push back limits. For example, with our repeaters. They allow us to double or even triple the maximum transmission distances defined by standard cable protocols. We utilize our extender technology to implement virtually limitless connections: transmitting AV and data signals via copper lines over several hundred metres, over fibre-optic cables across multiple kilometres and, with IP, even worldwide.
Distributing high bandwidth content over large distances requires a suite of tools that can deliver reliable, fault-free performance and meet the challenges of budget, environment and integration into existing infrastructure and systems.
Lindy has many years’ experience in developing and implementing a range of extending technology for a wide variety of customer applications and requirements.
Active repeater cables allow high speed AV and USB signals to be extended over and above standard certified distances in a simple, easy to install plug and play arrangement. These solutions are ideal for home, retail and office applications as they represent an affordable approach to long distance connectivity.
Cat.X solutions use standard Ethernet cables connected between extender and transmitter modules to make long distance connections of up to 100m and beyond. These products are ideal for KVM, USB and AV extension in offices and commercial environments as they use a connectivity medium that is familiar and easy to install for both IT and AV system integrators.
For more, advanced, point-to-point connections at the highest distances and bandwidths, fibre optic technology represents the ultimate in easy to install, high performance applications. Pure fibre optic solutions benefit from complete immunity to electrical interference so can be used in sensitive environments, such as medical, defence, broadcast and industrial facilities.
Hybrid fibre optic cable solutions utilise a copper element for power and device handshaking and fibre optic connections for the data transmission. Fibre optic extenders use transmitter and receiver modules that connect directly to the digital DVI, HDMI or USB connection at a source device, and then use fibre optic cabling to bridge the connection to a receiver connected to a target display, projector or other device.
Lindy’s HDBaseT portfolio is a wide range of products that can extend and distribute multiple uncompressed high bandwidth digital signals using a building’s existing point-to-point cable infrastructure. With the 5Play standard, Lindy HDBaseT solutions use a single connection point to deliver Ultra HD digital video, 100Base-T Ethernet, 100W Power over HDBaseT, RS232 control and USB signals. HDBaseT is one of the most important connectivity standards in today’s digital environment and Lindy is the perfect partner to work with system integrators and installers in deploying this versatile technology.
Sometimes the simplest connections need to be made over the longest distance. For medium to long distance connections between a computer and a USB device, Lindy Active Extension Technology is the powerful solution.
Distributing multiple signals long distances using a single solution may seem like a difficult task. But the advent of HDBaseT technology has brought with it a simple and effective way of making impossible signal distribution, possible.
When bridging very long distances, sophisticated optical technology is needed. Lindy fibre optic extenders leverage this technology to deliver very high performance, with data speeds of up 20Gbps over incredible distances.
When it’s necessary to simultaneously select different AV content and route it to multiple displays at different locations, the best approach is a flexible configurable combination of matrix switch and extender.
AV integrators are now increasingly turning to IP-based network solutions to extend signals from stationary video systems or distribute them within large environments and rooms.
