Lightware proudly presents the world's first Single fiber DisplayPort extender
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 fiber 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 2560x1600@60Hz pixel resolution video with full support of content protection (HDCP, DPCP). 4Kx2K resolution can be achieved up to 30Hz frame rate.

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 Fiber Technology makes these units fully DisplayPort 1.1a and HDCP 1.1 compliant without the need of a second fiber cable or copper connections. To simplify cabling, the bi-directional communication necessary for Link Training and HDCP handshaking, is performed on the same fiber 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.


  • Long distance lossless DisplayPort signal transmission
  • Apple Cinema Display port extension
  • Ground loop isolation
