Chromis is simplifying long-distance, uncompressed high-definition signal distribution for commercial and residential custom installations. Compared to more complex solutions such as HDBaseT, AVoverIP, and SDVoE, our GigaPOF® technology delivers optical performance in the form of a standard HDMI or DisplayPort cable. An active optical cable has the same electrical inputs as a traditional copper cable, but uses optical fiber for high-speed data transmission “between the connectors”. The connectors perform electrical-to-optical conversion at the source, and then reverse it at the destination.
Our patented polymer optical fiber technology ensures superior performance today and well into the future. Standard glass fiber is susceptible to fracturing and will degrade over time, compromising your system’s long-term performance. Built to last, Chromis cables are immune to micro-fracture fatigue, even under the harshest conditions.
The same polymer technology that provides first-rate performance makes our products the most durable on the market. Each active optical cable boasts a pull strength of over 100 lbs (50kg) and a bend radius of 0.2 inches (5mm). Plus, a natural resistance to static electricity, radio frequency interference and electromagnetic interference makes Chromis cables the most reliable choice for distributing HD signals in virtually any commercial or residential custom installation.
