Extron just added the DXP 42 HD 4K PLUS to the DXP HD 4K PLUS Series of high-end HDMI matrix switchers. This 4×2 model supports data rates up to 18 Gbps and video resolutions up to 4K@60Hz 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. EDID Minder and Key Minder ensure what Extron says is 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.
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.
