Extron announces AV platform to support HDMI 2.1

Extron announces AV platform to support HDMI 2.1Extron Electronics has announced that the XTP II CrossPoint Series AV technology platform supports the recently announced HDMI 2.1 specification, as well as DisplayPort 1.4.

The matrix switchers are engineered to exceed the bandwidth required by HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 signals and three modular frames are available for 16×16, 32×32, and 64×64 I/O configurations. They also feature EverLast power supplies engineered by Extron.

The XTP II, which already supports the HDMI 2.1 specification’s range of higher video resolutions and refresh rates, including 8K @ 60 Hz and 4K @ 120 Hz with HDR, will be able to meet the challenges of an 8K future.

“The XTP II platform was developed to anticipate advancements in technology, such as the ultra-high resolutions and increased data rates specified by HDMI 2.1,” says Extron vice president of sales and marketing Casey Hall.

“XTP II CrossPoint frames ensure the core of the AV systems installed today can stay in place as the rest of the installation evolves.”
