Fiber Optics do not have the bandwidth restrictions we see with copper wiring. This allows for the distribution of completely uncompressed HDMI 2.0 signals. 4K with HDR at 18Gbps is no problem for this this extender!
Since the launch of our first optical extender, the AC-EXO-444-KIT, we've received requests from customers asking for a completely uncompressed solution for long distance HDMI distribution. Well, the wait is over. AVPro Edge is now shipping our AC-EXO-UNC-KIT. This is a completely uncompressed signal extender, the HDMI input on the transmitter and HDMI output on the receiver are built with military stability. You can connect the transmitter and receiver with any single-mode or multi-mode fiber, giving you flexibility to run your own, or use the fiber the builders already have in the wall.
Here is a diagram for connecting the AC-EXO-UNC-KIT:
Audio Return Channel
ARC becomes a necessity as more end-users are running Netflix, Hulu and other streaming applications from their television's internal computer. When the display becomes the source we need a way to extract that audio for whole home distribution. The answer to that is Audio Return Channel, or ARC.
The AC-EXO-UNC-KIT is able to handle these ARC signals, here is a diagram for ARC:

AVPro Edge specializes in high bandwidth video distribution. We make sure our products are feature rich and go above and beyond the integrators needs. We also understand that sometimes the job calls for a basic point to point 4K HDMI extender without the frills. Enter the AC-EX70-UHD-BKT.
The Basic 70 Meter Extender Kit (AC-EX70-UHD-BKT) is the lowest cost 4K HDMI extender from AVPro Edge and is ideal for basic point to point video extension, but not for advanced video distribution. It does not have full IR control or HDR and Dolby Vision Support and the chassis is bulkier than the super slim AC-EX70-UHD-KIT. This extender kit will deliver your 4K signal up to 40 meters and your 1080p signal 70 meters. You still get the AVPro Edge stability and warranty that you receive with all AVPro Edge products.

Kevin Billingsley joins team at AVPro Global Holdings as new VP of Sales.
AVPro Global has announced the hiring of Kevin Billingsley as Vice President of Sales. Formerly of Kaleidescape, Atlona, Clare Controls and Middle Atlantic Products, Kevin has a proven track record of introducing successful channel strategies and driving effective sales programs throughout his career. At AVPro, Kevin will be responsible for the management and success of the global sales organization as well as oversight and management of AVPro’s network of manufacturer’s representatives and distributors across North America.
Jeff Murray, CEO of AVPro Global stated, “We are pleased to have filled our VP of Sales position with a seasoned leader with years of experience in both residential and commercial AV. Kevin will be managing all aspects of our sales channels including in-house reps, manufacturer’s reps and distributors. AVPro Global has grown rapidly over the past few years, primarily with our AVPro Edge and Murideo lines. This has led to the need for executive leadership that can focus solely on customer facing activities to further provide our customers with the best products and support in the industry. Kevin’s background includes working on both sides of our industry – getting his start as a Custom Integrator and subsequently leading other well-known manufacturers of connectivity equipment to high levels of success.”
Billingsley added, “I am very excited and humbled to take on this new challenge, and lead the sales team at AVPro into its bright future in the Global Connectivity Market. AVPro is creating a history of delivering industry-leading technology and products with an ever growing customer base.”
AVPro is excited to announce the AC-EXO-UNC-KIT, Uncompressed Fiber Optic Extender Kit, a 4K HDMI Extender via Optical Fiber for transmission distances up to 2 Kilometers (via single-mode fiber).
In critical applications where RGB triplets need to be pixel perfect at 4K60 (4:4:4), the AC-EXO-UNC-KIT is ideal. On certain projectors there is simply no other way to sync with new and high bandwidth formats like Dolby Vision at 4K60 4:4:4 without an uncompressed link. No latency, no sync up time just a pixel perfect picture every time.
Some fiber extenders extend the video and maybe the audio. The AC-EXO-UNC-KIT does what integrators need by extending IR and RS232, providing audio return channel (ARC) capabilities – both optical and via HDMI, and provides ethernet ports for extending internet access points or to control displays.
AVPro’s Jeff Murray stated, “The AC-EXO-UNC-KIT is a revolutionary new product that when paired with field terminatable fiber makes the perfect long distance extender for full bandwidth HDMI 2.0 signals.”
