The VE883A is a True 4K HDMI Optical extender that consists of a transmitter VE883AT and a receiver VE883AR to transmit up to 4096 x 2160 / 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz (4:4:4) HDMI, audio, USB 2.0, IR, RS-232, and Gigabit Ethernet signals across 300 m (VE883AK1) or 10 km (VE883AK2) over a single duplex fiber optic cable losslessly. While helping avoid bulky cable setup, fiber optic cables are electrically isolated, thus they are immune to RFI and EMI. With ATEN’s exclusive FarSmooth technology, the VE883A prevents lagging and freezing by matching the output rates to the input rates and ensures that the video display is stable, smooth and identical to the source, particularly in long-distance extension applications where uninterrupted video streams are required.

The VE883A comes with interfaces of HDMI input / output, analog audio input / output, USB 2.0, IR, RS-232, and Gigabit Ethernet. Connectivity with USB peripherals is expanded thanks to the VE883A’s dual USB Type-A ports. For point-to-point extension, pluggable SFP+ modules are included to serve the purpose of optical connection. Plus, the VE883A is compatible with ATEN’s VM7584 / VM8584 Optical Input / Output Board installed in ATEN’s modular matrix switches to broaden applications. It is suitable for installations where True 4K video transmission across a long distance and electrical isolation are essential, such as control rooms, factories, and hospitals.

Note: VE883A / VE883AT / VE883AR is not backward compatible with VE883 / VE883T / VE883R.

    Note:
    The maximum transmission distance may vary depending on the fiber type, bandwidth, connector splicing, losses, model, chromatic dispersion, environmental factor, and kinks.
    For long distance transmissions, ATEN recommends using SFP+ modules to allow compatibility with single or multi mode fibers. Depending on the chosen package (VE883AK1 or VE883AK2), different SFP+ modules are supplied:
      • VE883AK1: 10 Gbps/300m SFP+ Duplex Multi Mode Transceiver
      • VE883AK2: 10 Gbps/10 km SFP+ Duplex Single Mode Transceiver
    ATEN recommends using Single Mode fibers that conform to IEC 11801 (OS1, OS1a, OS2), and Multi Mode fibers that conform to IEC 11801 (OM3, OM4) specifications.
    The Device is class 1 laser product. It meets the safety regulations of IEC/EN 60825-1, 21 CFR 1040.10, and 1040.11 except for deviations pursuant to Laser Notice No. 50, dated June 24, 2007.
