Extron announced it is now taking orders for the new ISS 612, a 12-input seamless switcher for the dynamic presentation and scaling of HDMI, DisplayPort and 12G-SDI content at resolutions up to 4K/60. It supports a maximum data rate of 18 Gbps and features advanced Extron Vector 4K scaling technology. Separate Preview and Program outputs enable the operator to review sources before switching them to the viewing audience. For streamlined integration, the switcher provides audio de-embedding and multiple control options, including an intuitive front panel, RS-232 and Ethernet.
Multiple switching and transition effects are available with the ISS 612, such as wipes with selectable direction and duration and a seamless cut that eliminates distracting jumps, glitches and delays for true seamless source switching. Picture-in-picture mode facilitates the insertion of a secondary source window that can be dynamically sized and positioned anywhere within the output. A company logo or other custom graphic can be stored and instantly recalled. A wide variety of keying options enable the operator to overlay live content such as video or scrolling text.
