Extron Ships Bigger (and Better) 4K Seamless Scaling Presentation Matrix
Extron just started shipping its new DTP CrossPoint 108 4K scaling presentation matrix switcher. The DTP CrossPoint 108 4K is a 10×8 matrix switcher with 4K inputs and outputs, four built-in 4K scalers powered by Extron Vector 4K scaling technology, seamless switching and logo insertion, integrated DTP and XTP signal extension, comprehensive audio DSP and AEC capabilities, a mono or stereo amplifier and an pro-level control processor. Whew.
The DTP CrossPoint 108 4K is fully-compatible with every 4K sources and display on the market (even 4K@30Hz 4:4:4 and 4K@60Hz 4:2:0). Four built-in scalers (powered by what Extron is calling “Vector 4K” scaling technology), are paired to the DTP outputs and enable independent scaling up to 4K. Extron says that their Vector 4K scaling engine is specifically designed with best-in-class image upscaling and downscaling, and it embodies a new set of image processing algorithms that deliver uncompromising performance with 30-bit precision processing. The DTP twisted pair inputs and outputs provide extraordinary flexibility in distributing AV and control signals. They can be used to connect to any display with an HDBaseT input, or tie into a centralized, facility-wide XTP System to add local room-based AV systems. Customize any presentation using the professional source transitions that are available, or insert a custom logo into the background or foreground of the scaled output video.
The integrated professional-grade audio DSP technology features all of the audio processing tools and capabilities of a fully equipped, professional outboard DSP — it’s not stripped down just because it’s inside a switcher. The DTP CrossPoint 108 4K includes four independent channels of high performance AEC for conferencing applications. A unique digital audio expansion port links the internal DSP to an Extron DMP 128 for expanded I/O capacity to support additional microphones or speaker destinations. Additionally, the built-in mono or stereo 100 watt amplifier features the same Extron core technologies found in the renowned ENERGY STAR qualified XTRA Series, delivering high energy efficiency and professional grade audio performance.
DTP CrossPoint 108 4K IPCP models feature an integrated Extron IP Link Pro control processor, with the advanced features, processing power, and breakthrough technologies found in the standalone Extron IPCP Pro 350 control processor. This allows for complete, customizable control of an entire AV system. The DTP CrossPoint 108 4K IPCP model with LinkLicense allows a tablet or laptop to serve as the primary control interface for the AV system.
