Extron has announced the certification of multiple Canon professional-grade projectors for direct connection and setup with XTP Systems.
The twisted pair inputs on the Canon WUX5800, WUX6700, WUX5800Z, WUX6600Z, WUX7000Z, and WUX7500 projectors can be set to be recognised as an XTP receiver. This enables video, audio, RS-232 control, and Ethernet signals to be sent straight to the device.
Canon joins the party offering commercial projectors and flat panel displays that have been certified to be connected directly to an XTP twisted pair transmitter. This enables simple point-to-point installations or combines an XTP II CrossPoint or XTP CrossPoint matrix switcher for AV signal switching and distribution applications.
“Consultants and integrators continually look for better ways to deploy streamlined designs and simplify the installation process,” says Extron vice president of sales and marketing Casey Hall.
“XTP-certified display devices such as the Canon projectors simplify designs, are easy to integrate, and provide transparent operation in the widest variety of commercial environments.”
Extron XTP Systems provide an integrated switching and distribution solution for multiple digital and analog formats. They support local connectivity as well as extended transmission capability for sending video with resolutions up to 4K, audio, RS 232/IR, and Ethernet up to 100 metres over shielded CATx cable, and up to 10km over fibre optic cable.
Each system is HDCP compliant and provides reliable digital switching with Extron’s SpeedSwitch Technology. With swappable modular components, a selection of XTP transmitters and receivers, and 24/7 system monitoring, XTP Systems are designed to provide continuous, trouble-free operation in critical applications.
