Real4K™ Optical Adapters are simple “plus and play” dongles that convert electrical HDMI signals to optical signals and back again allowing for a full 18 Gbps HDMI over distances as long as 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. In addition, Real4K™ adapters can be upgraded in the field to Real8K™ optical adapters when available.

We are extremely honored to be selected as a winner of this award,” said Brian Peters, Inneos CEO. “This validates the need for a simple 18 Gbps HDMI interconnect that enables 4K the way it was meant to be seen,” Peters continued.

Product Category Decision Criteria

Nine AV professionals, including CTS-certified technology managers and AV/IT engineers, judged each product live on the show floor on Day One and Day Two of InfoComm. The criteria used to select the winners included:

  • Perceived ease of installation, use, maintenance and value
  • Product performance against category standards
  • Richness and relevance of feature set
  • How well does the product/system save on TCO or deliver on ROI
  • Anticipated reliability and versatility of product relative to peers

This year we have had an overwhelming response to our AV Technology Best of Show Awards with more single entries than any other year on record,” said Margot Douaihy, editorial director of AV Technology. “We try to honor the perspective of tech managers who are tasked with finding the right products for their capital expense requests or lifecycle plans—solutions they can trust and stand behind.
