Celerity Technologies: Celerity Technologies develops high
performance, easy to use fiber optic products for residential and commercial AV
systems. Celerity's first breakthrough innovation, Detachable Fiber Optic HDMI
has become successful with professional AV installers for single and multi-room
video systems. Celerity's sleek, thin fiber optic cable with detachable HDMI
connectors and high bandwidth makes it easy for installation and provides the
ultimate video performance.
Detachable Fiber Optical (DFO) HDMI Cable: Celerity's
Detachable Fiber Optic (DFO) HDMI cable is designed to solve the installer's and
home owner's common problems with long distance HDMI and concealed installations
in home and business applications. The Celerity Detachable Fiber Optic (DFO)
HDMI cable is an easy-to-use, secure connection for home video distribution,
conference room presentation systems, classroom projection systems, and wherever
a high definition video display is located. Fiber optics provides the speed and
bandwidth needed for the best picture quality for high definition video at
lengths up to 1000'; supporting the long distances required in many commercial
and consumer video solutions.
Fiber Optics Benefit: Celerity's fiber optic technology
converts HDMI into light signals that support today's high-definition and
ultra-high definition bandwidth demands of 1080p and 4K, as well a multi-channel
audio. Fiber optics work great for sending digital signals which include audio,
video and data information. These signals travel faster and farther without
degradation over fiber optics, versus copper. There is no loss of signal over
long distance and no EMI interference which makes Celerity DFO the best choice
for point-to-point and distributed high definition video connections. Celerity
DFO HDMI offers the best picture and sound quality without and interference or
loss of signal integrity.
18Gbps Bandwidth Technology for 4K & HDR: Enabled by
Celerity's 18Gbps bandwidth technology, 4K/60Hz video performance for HDMI 2.0
is supported in Celerity Fiber Optic HDMI cables for sharp and detailed images
on Ultra HDTV displays from 4K/60Hz resolution video sources. Also supporting
HDR (High Dynamic Range) video & 36-bit Deep Color, Celerity offers unparalleled
HDMI performance for picture quality, color depth and detail. In addition,
Celerity DFO HDMI supports 1080p and 3D video.
HDMI Specifications: HDCP, EDID, DDC and CEC requirements
are fully supported by Celerity's Detachable Fiber Optic (DFO) HDMI cables to
ensure that the full quality HDMI experience is always reliable.
Zero Interference: Celerity Detachable Fiber Optic (DFO)
HDMI cables do not pick up interference nor do they create interference to your
entertainment system. As all of the signals being carried are optical light
signals, they are completely immune to interference and electronic noise.
Because Fiber Optic is EMI free, it can be installed with multiple cable pulls.
Detachable HDMI Connector: The Celerity Detachable Fiber
Optical (DFO) cable includes two detachable HDMI connectors that are easily
attached to the miniature fiber optic plugs on each end of the cable after
pre-wiring. The small Celerity fiber optic proprietary plugs on each end of the
Celerity Fiber Optic cable connect to these detachable HDMI connectors which
plug into your source and display devices. This detachable connector design is
so that the Celerity fiber optic cable between components can be easily
installed in tight, hidden spaces and in conduit when required.
Note: Celerity Technologies' Fiber Optic Plug
terminating each end of the Celerity Fiber Optic HDMI cable supports
proprietary technology for HDMI over Celerity Fiber Optical cable. While
the plug may appear similar to that of a micro-HDMI or mini-USB connector,
it does not support any technical attributes of either connector.
Easy Installation + Plenum Rated: Celerity Detachable Fiber
Optic (DFO) cables are thin, flexible, and easily hidden; plus feature a
detachable HDMI connector making it very easy for professional AV technicians
and DIY customers to install the fiber optic cable in walls, ceilings, and small
conduit runs. All Celerity Fiber Optic cables are plenum rated for safe in-wall
installation in your home, office, or building. There are no complicated fiber
terminations, special tools, and testing required. And no extenders, baluns or
amplifiers are needed either. The Fiber Optic Cable has a pull strength of 60
Durable & Flexible Jack: Inside the Celerity Detachable
Fiber Optical (DFO) HDmI cable's jacket is a woven layer of very strong yarn to
provide durability and pulling strength. The yarn, known as "strength members",
protects the tiny, optical glass fibers. The cable jack is also flexible with a
bend radius of 0.2" (5mm), which is approximately the diameter of a pencil.
Audio Return Channel (ARC): Celerity is the world's first
fiber optic HDMI cable to support Audio Return Channel (ARC). ARC offers the
benefit of requiring no additional cables to send sound from a TV to the home AV
system for playback through the speakers in the room. For rooms with in-wall,
in-ceiling or bookshelf speakers, ARC improves the audio experience tremendously
without the need for additional cables or other accessories.
Power Requirements: The Celerity Detachable Fiber Optical (DFO)
cable is very efficient as its power needs are limited to very low levels. Power
at the source component (TX/transmit) is drawn from the source HDMI connector
using the HDMI "hot plug". At the display (RX/receive), power is easily
connected via a USB port on the TV and with the USB power cable (19" in length)
which is wired into the Celerity Detachable HDMI connector.
Note: In rare cases where insufficient power may be
supplied, connecting the TX (transmitter) USB connector to a power source is
required. The required specification is 5V 1000mA, 50/60Hz 120-240VAC.
LED Indicators: The Celerity Detachable Fiber Optical (DFO)
cable includes an LED indicator at each end of the fiber optic HDMI connector.
These tiny LEDs are really important and convenient. They let you know that the
Celerity Fiber Optic HDMI cable is properly working from end-to-end.
Directional: Celerity DFO HDMI cables are directional and
must be installed correctly. Ensure the fiber optical plug and included
detachable HDMI connector marked "T" is located at the source component. Ensure
that the fiber optic plug and detachable HDMI connector marked "R" is located at
the video display.
Available Lengths: The Celerity Detachable Fiber Optical (DFO)
cable is available in 35', 40, 50', 100', 200', 500', and 1000' lengths.
