Extron Electronics recently introduced the new DXP HD 4K Series of high
performance HDMI matrix switchers for resolutions up to 4K, including 1080p/60
with Deep Color. They are HDCP compliant, and support HDMI data rates to 10.2
Gbps, Deep Color up to 12-bit, 3D, and HD lossless audio formats. Extron
technologies such as SpeedSwitch, Key Minder, and EDID Minder, along with
automatic input cable equalization and output reclocking, ensure dependable system
operation with exceptional switching speeds and compatibility between devices. The
matrix switchers also feature built-in de-embedding, enabling digital audio from any
input to be assigned to the digital or analog stereo outputs for streamlined
integration. Available in I/O sizes from 4×4 to 16×16, the DXP HD 4K Series is ideal
for use in applications that require reliable, high performance routing of digital
video and digital or analog audio signals in professional AV environments.
“Many designers are expected to deliver a sophisticated fixed I/O solution for 4K
video systems that provides high reliability while also being easy for the end user
to operate,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron.
“Loaded with proven technologies from Extron, the DXP HD 4K matrix switchers
provide rock solid, install-and-forget reliability for routing 4K video and independent
audio within the meeting room, lecture hall, or control center.”
Several Extron technologies included with the DXP HD 4K Series simplify integration
of HDMI-enabled devices. EDID Minder automatically manages EDID by maintaining
continuous EDID communication with each source, ensuring that sources power up
properly and reliably output content for display. For HDMI signals with protected
content, Key Minder authenticates and maintains continuous HDCP encryption to
support reliable switching while enabling simultaneous distribution of a single
source signal to one or more displays, and SpeedSwitch Technology provides ultra-
fast switching of encrypted signals.
The DXP HD 4K Series also switches embedded digital audio from HDMI source
signals, along with the corresponding video, to any or all of the selected outputs. To
further streamline integration, de-embedded audio can be routed to digital or
analog stereo audio outputs to support a separate sound system. The technologies
and capabilities built into DXP HD 4K Series ensure high performance AV signal
routing, with a fully digital pathway that maintains the highest possible audio and
image quality for multiple sources and displays.
