Lightware proudly presents the world’s first Single fiber DisplayPort extender
Lightware DP-OPT-TX100 and DP-OPT-RX100 devices extend Dual-mode DisplayPort 1.1a high resolution video
and embedded audio, with optional HDCP encryption, over one multimode fiber up to 2000 m.
DisplayPort is one of the newest video interface standards introduced by VESA. Using DisplayPort, high resolution
video and excellent quality audio can be transmitted. The interface's 10.8 Gbps bandwidth is capable of transmitting
2560 x 1600 pixel resolution video with full support of content protection (HDCP, DPCP).
Dual-mode DisplayPort: when connecting a DVI or HDMI display through an adaptor cable, Dual-mode
DisplayPort graphic cards reconfigure their Outputs to DVI or HDMI accordingly. Lightware DisplayPort extenders
support Dual-mode port extension and adaptor cables.
Single Fiber Technology makes these units fully DisplayPort 1.1a and HDCP 1.1 compliant without the need of a
second fiber cable or copper connections. To simplify cabling, the bi-directional communication necessary for Link
Training and HDCP handshaking, is performed on the same fiber core that transmits the video signal.
Galvanic isolation between source and display helps to avoid ground loops and hum effects. No delay occurs in
the signal during optical conversion as the video image is transported without any frame latency.
Standalone operation
DisplayPort mode
DisplayPort mode – extending connection between a DisplayPort source and a DisplayPort capable display.

DVI / HDMI mode
DVI / HDMI mode – extending connection between a Dual-mode DisplayPort source and a DVI/HDMI capable display by using a single adaptor.
Detailed description of LED indicators (both TX100 and RX100):
(REMOTE) MONITOR DETECT LED – is on when a powered monitor is connected to
the RX100 device.
(REMOTE) SOURCE DETECT LED – in DisplayPort mode this LED indicates the
source’s power status. If a powered source is connected to TX100 this LED is on,
otherwise it’s blinking. In DVI/HDMI mode (when using the extender with
DVI/HDMI monitor) this LED is off.
FIBER LINK LED – blinks when the link is active between the TX100 and RX100
devices, and they’re ready to use.
POWER LED – is on when the device is powered by 5 V DC adapter.
1 LANE / 2 LANE / 4 LANE LEDs – in DisplayPort mode these LEDs indicate if 1, 2,
or 4 lanes of DisplayPort Main Link’s four high speed lanes are used (determined by
the video resolution). In DVI/HDMI mode both LEDs are off.
LINK LED – in DisplayPort mode this LED blinks when link speed is the lower 1.62
Gbps, the LED is on when link speed is the higher 2.7 Gbps.
MODE LED – this LED is on when a DisplayPort monitor is connected to the RX100
device, the LED blinks when a DVI/HDMI monitor is connected to the RX100 device
via a DP to DVI/HDMI adaptor.
