LightSpider 4-TX ™ Quad LightSpider HD Video to Fiber Bridge -discontinued

The LightSpider™ is an innovative fiber optic point to point bridge for long distance transport of HDMI, audio, RS232 serial data, and infrared signals. It can carry this set of signals up to 1,000 feet (305 meters) over a single strand of low cost multimode fiber cable. The LightSpider 4-TX™ consists of 4 LightSpiders in a single 1RU rack mount chassis for convenience of centrally locating all source equipment at one location.

The LightSpiders are able to communicate all of these signals over a single strand of either 62.5/125 micron or 50/125 micron multimode fiber cable (one fiber per LightSpider). No additional Cat5 or additional fibers are required to achieve full HD with HDCP encryption and EDID communications.

Features and Benefits


Cables and Termination

If you have experience with installing and terminating multimode LC fiber, great! We don't need you to do anything different.

However if you are new to fiber optics, we have a very easy to use kit for terminating fiber. With the AFL FAST™ LC Connector Tool Kit, you can terminate a fiber in minutes, no glue, no heater trays, no polishing. It's as easy as strip, cleave, insert and lock in place, then test. To see just how easy it is, follow this link to a video demo.

The AFL FAST™ LC Connector Tool Kit is available directly through Neothings.

In addition to kits and connectors, we also carry bulk cable (cut to length or spools), and premade cable assembies. Premade cable assemblies are currently available as 100', 200', 300', and 500'. Premade assemblies can also be special ordered. Contact us for details.
