Extron Electronics has introduced the new DXP HD 4K PLUS series of high performance HDMI matrix switchers that support signals up to 4K/60 with 4:4:4 chroma sampling. They also support HDMI 2.0b specifications, including data rates up to 18Gbps, HDR, Deep Colour up to 12-bit, 3D and HD lossless audio formats.
The matrix switchers incorporate Extron technologies, including SpeedSwitch, EDID Minder and Key Minder, as well as HDMI input equalisations and output regeneration to ensure reliable system operation.
“By introducing the next generation of Extron DXP 4K/60 HDMI matrix switchers, we are meeting the ever increasing demand for 4K/60 video distribution,” says Extron Electronics vice president of worldwide sales and marketing Casey Hall.
Digital audio can be de-embedded from any input and assigned to digital or analogue stereo outputs for ease of integration.
Available in 4×4, 8×4, and 8×8 sizes, the DXP HD 4K PLUS series is designed for use with computers equipped with 4K graphics cards, media players and similar signal sources, as well as 4K native resolution displays.
The switchers have a maximum data rate of 18Gbps and support computer and video resolutions up to 4096×2160 at 60Hz with 8-bit colour in 4:4:4 colour space.
“With their 18Gbps data rate capabilities, the DXP HD 4K PLUS series delivers the performance required for distributing 4K/60 signals at 4:4:4 chroma sampling in command and control centres, visualisation environments and other demanding applications,” says Casey.
To maintain signal integrity, the matrix switchers feature automatic cable equalisation on inputs and output re-clocking to reshape and restore timing of the video signal at each HDMI output. These features allow longer 4K signal runs when combined with Extron Pro series high speed HDMI cables. This reduces the need for additional signal conditioning equipment by compensating for weak source signals or signal loss on long cable runs. Additionally, +5 VDC, 200 mA is available on each output for powering peripheral devices.
