Extron Ships Compact Four Input Scaler

IN1604-HD-2-0914Extron is now shipping its new IN1604 HD — an HDCP-compliant four-input scaler that features three HDMI inputs, a universal analog video input and an HDMI output. It’s designed for installation beneath conference tables and in lecterns to provide localized switching support for sources such as presenter devices. The IN1604 HD joins the recently available IN1604 DTP, which features an Extron DTP twisted pair output.

The IN1604 HD features what Extron is calling an advanced scaling engine that can scale HDMI and analog video signals to a common high resolution output and includes features like 1080i deinterlacing and Deep Color processing. With Extron EDID Minder, Key Minder and SpeedSwitch, integrators can easily connect sources and a display with plug-and-play simplicity, automatic device negotiation and nearly instantaneous switching.

The IN1604 HD delivers essential audio integration capabilities that include HDMI audio embedding and de-embedding, flexible audio switching with two individually assignable analog audio inputs, switching transitions, gain and attenuation adjustments for each analog input, output volume control, and selectable audio muting. The IN1604 HD also features convenient options for remote control and operation, including front panel controls and on-screen menus, USB, RS232 and contact closure with tally output for easy integration into a variety of environments.
