How it Works
The light travels down the fibers using internal reflection, which allows the light to bounce off the cable walls similar to a bobsled. Light travels extremely fast (186,000 miles a second) so the signal arrives almost instantly without losing any quality.
Better than copper
The maximum recommended length of regular DisplayPort Cables is about 6-10 ft. for full functionality depending on the quality of the cable. DisplayPort over fiber breaks that barrier allowing extension up to 300ft.Easier than any DisplayPort extender
Since the optical converters are housed inside the heads of the cable, there is no need for any external repeaters. This also means that there is no need for extra power adapters or patch cables.
The Light-Link eliminates possible points of failure. In a typical DisplayPort extender setup with baluns you have a total of eight connections:
- x2 RJ45 connections - transmitter balun to receiver balun.
- x2 power connections - from baluns to power outlets.
That's eight possible things that can get unplugged, plugged in the wrong way, or become defective. With the Light-Link you only have one cable that can be easily verified end to end. Troubleshooting is incredibly easy compared to any other setup.Using with Valve Index?
You will need a female Displayport to female Displayport Adapter, this was tested using an active extender
You will need a seperate cable in order to extend the USB on the Valve Index, unfortunately our Light-Link USB cable does not work with the Valve Index
