Extron debuts new compact 4K/60 4:4:4 HDMI matrix switcher

It is the newest addition to the DXP HD 4K PLUS Series

Extron has announced the addition of the DXP 42 HD 4K PLUS to the DXP HD 4K PLUS Series of high-performance HDMI matrix switchers. This 4×2 model supports data rates up to 18 Gbps and video resolutions up to 4K/60 with 4:4:4 chroma sampling. To maintain signal integrity and reliability, it provides automatic cable equalization on each input and independent output reclocking to reshape and restore video signal timing on both HDMI outputs. Extron technologies such as EDID Minder and Key Minder ensure optimal system performance and compliance with HDCP-encrypted content. The matrix switcher also facilitates easy integration into a wide variety of professional AV applications, with audio de-embedding and audio breakaway capabilities. These features combined with multiple control options make the DXP 42 HD 4K PLUS an ideal solution for applications that require reliable, high performance matrix switching of 4K/60 HDMI video and audio signals.

“System designers and integrators often need compact matrix switchers for use in small meeting rooms and collaboration spaces,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing. “The DXP 42 HD 4K PLUS is the answer. It’s small in size and big on performance, delivering 4K/60 4:4:4 signal routing and de-embedded audio outputs without need for additional equipment.”

The audio outputs on the DXP 42 HD 4K PLUS simplify integration with a local audio system. Embedded digital audio from a source can be switched along with its corresponding video signal to either or both selected HDMI outputs. Built-in audio de-embedders allow signals to be routed to analog audio outputs and made available as line level stereo audio on captive screw connectors. The internal de-embedders eliminate the need for external HDMI audio extraction products. The result of integrating the DXP 42 HD 4K PLUS matrix switcher is fewer boxes in the AV system for reduced system complexity and maintenance costs.
