A Novel Solution That Opens Up New Possibilities for Video Communication: 4K HDMI/IP Optical Transmission System

Fuji Xerox has developed the 4K HDMI/IP Optical Transmission System, which can transmit 4K audio/video data simultaneously with LAN communication data over a distance as long as 800 meters. Released for sale on May 15, 2015, the system provides a solution to the problem that HDMI cables cannot be extended beyond 10 meters, which poses a challenge in constructing video systems. Our new system is also capable of sending data via LAN while ensuring the transmission of video, thus enabling new two-way video communication that integrates video with communication. This paper introduces the development background of the 4K HDMI/IP Optical Transmission System and describes its advantages. It also explains four examples of video-related solutions that made full use of this transmission system.
