Video/Audio Signals Extenders - Active Optical Cables vs Detachable MPO/MTP Fiber Cables

Video/Audio Signals Extenders - Active Optical Cables vs Detachable MPO/MTP Fiber Cables

Fiber optic video/audio 4K/8K HDMI and DisplayPort 1.4 and DVI cables carry digital audio/video signals over longer distances than copper cable extenders and work better against signal interference. 

Because of these advantages, pure fiber MPO/MTP HDMI and DisplayPort 1.4 and DVI cables are preferred by pro A/V industry users as well as those working in special fields such as medical imaging, flight simulation, and virtual-reality display. 

In this blog, we compare them to show the pros and cons of Active Optical Cables (AOCs) and pure fiber video/audio cables.

Active Optical Cables (AOCs)
Active Optical Cable type of video/audio extended cable uses a single integrated assembly of connectors and cable, much like common copper cables. Using an integrated assembly makes AOC simple to install and maintain. All that is required to install an AOC is to connect each end to the respective device. And, unlike copper cables, AOC video extended cable are more flexible and smaller in diameter, making it ideal when connecting through tight space or turns. Note that all fiber optic video extended cable are directional, so the transmitter connector, marked “TX” or “SOURCE”, must plug into a video source while the receiver connector, marked “RX” or “DISPLAY”, must plug into a display.

Detachable MPO/MTP Fiber extended video/audio cable
Detachable type of fiber optic video extended cable consists of video/audio connectors like HDMI 2.0 and HDMI 2.1 for 8K, DisplayPort 1.2 and DisplayPort 1.4 for 8K, DVI or USB etc, MPO/MTP fiber trunk cables, and MPO/MTP fiber adapters. 

The connectors are similar to those of Active Optical Cable, plugging into a video source or display, but without the attached cable. Because the connectors are separate from fiber cable, only the fiber cable needs to be run through a conduit or false ceiling, much easier than Active Optical Cable with large, attached connectors. Also, the detached nature of fiber cable means that it can be replaced easily with a different length or even patched to another display or source at ease.
