PALME Middle East 2010 - Magenta Research, a leading manufacturer of AV signal distribution equipment, announced its new FiberMax Engine technology which represents a breakthrough in the transmission of bandwidth intensive video, audio, USB and other auxiliary signal types over industry standard fiber optics.  Signal distribution products using the FiberMax Engine will enable customers to distribute multi- format high bandwidth signals over fiber at significantly lower costs.

The FiberMax Engine is an ultra high-speed data sequencing and streaming engine capable of driving standard SFP optics at maximum efficiency. The resulting benefit is the unique capability of simultaneously transmitting uncompressed 1920x1200 video with HDCP at 60Hz, USB 2.0 at 480Mbps, 8-Channel 24-bit DTS-HD Master Audio, bidirectional RS-232, IR and CEC, all on industry standard SFP optics and cabling. The distance range supported while transmitting all these signal types at their maximum performance is over 6600ft/2KM with multimode optics and 18.75MI/30KM with singlemode optics.

“I am very pleased and excited to have had the opportunity to get a sneak preview of Magenta’s new FiberMax Engine and the associated family of products” said Danny Barnycz, Chief Creatologist of the Barnycz Group.  “I believe that this technology will significantly alter the manner in which the industry approaches digital AV signal distribution. While the performance capability of FiberMax in itself catalyzes more widespread use of fiber, Magenta’s unique product architecture around this technology innovatively addresses both the designer’s and the installer’s ever growing nightmare with mixed signal compatibility, HDCP, field configurability and time to market pressures.”

Barnycz added “Anyone involved in AV signal distribution will want to keep an eye on what Magenta is bringing to market with the upcoming product line.” 

“Given the very high cost of custom optics and the lack of innovation in AV transmission over standard networking optics, both ProAV and Digital Signage industries have been slow to adopt hi-definition digital video and fiber cabling for AV signal distribution” said Bob Michaels, President, Magenta Research, “Magenta’s FiberMax Engine is poised to change this trend just like Magenta’s MultiView and Mondo technologies did for hi-definition analog video distribution over UTP.” 

Achieving this technology was no trivial engineering feat.  Magenta Research has invested heavily in cutting edge R&D for high speed digital design to deliver a technology that will represent the core of its future product offerings for extension, distribution and switching applications.

A comprehensive line of such products leveraging the FiberMax Engine will be publicly launched at InfoComm 2010 with specifications available earlier under non disclosure agreement (NDA.)
