Extron just announced it’s shipping the DXP 42 HD 4K PLUS, the latest model added to the DXP HD 4K PLUS Series of high-performance HDMI matrix switchers.
As you may remember from our earlier coverage, this 4×2 model supports data rates up to 18 Gbps and video resolutions up to 4K@60Hz (4:4:4). It provides automatic cable equalization on each input and independent output reclocking to reshape and restore video signal timing on both HDMI outputs. 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 include 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.
