Inneos' Real4K™ 18Gbps Optical Adapter Wins "Best New Hardware Product" Award at CEDIA 2017

PLEASANTON, Calif., Sept. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CEDIA represents more than 30,000 AV industry professionals and is the leading global authority in the $14 billion home technology industry. CEDIA 2017 was attended by more than 20,000 AV professionals. CEDIA awards are selected by a panel of home technology professionals for the innovation they represent and the value they provide to both the AV integrator's business and to end users.

Real4K™ Optical Adapters are simple “plug and play” dongles that convert electrical HDMI signals to optical signals and back again, allowing for a full 18 Gbps HDMI over distances of 1000 meters (typical). Optical cabling provides the extra bandwidth to enable video content that isn’t compressed or color reduced in order to get the signal from the source to the display. Additionally, Real4K™ adapters can be upgraded in the field to Real8K™ optical adapters when available.

"CEDIA is a wonderful opportunity to engage the professionals who shape the industry by recommending innovative products," said Todd Whitaker, Inneos' Sr. Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Integrators truly understand what end customers want and we feel truly honored that the CEDIA organization selected our Real4K™ adapters for their Best New Hardware Product Award," continued Whitaker.
