Extron introduced a complete line of HD and 2K Video Players for single and multi-channel applications at the 2010 NAB Show last week. The MMP 9500 is an HD MPEG video player that supports ATSC-compliant formats for single or multi-site digital signage applications. The JMP 9600 Two-Channel JPEG2000 Players are ideal for home entertainment applications.
The MMP 9500 is a powerful and feature rich solution that supports ATSC-compliant formats, HDV, and MPEG-2 in resolutions of 1920x1080i, 1280x720p, and 720×576/480p. Utilizing a 10/100 Base T Ethernet network infrastructure, the MMP 9500 is an intelligent device that can live anywhere on the network and it can be triggered to play out HD video as part of an elaborate multimedia show and even operates in sync with lighting, music, and environmental effects.
Two models of JMP 9600 Video Players, the JMP 9600 HD and JMP 9600 2K, can be used to provide 2D, 3D, and stereoscopic playback of JPEG2000 format files at up to 250Mbps. JPEG2000 compression is the superior choice for high resolution image playback. 4:4:4 color sampling and 12-bit color depth provide better granularity and less contouring. JPEG2000 was chosen by the digital cinema industry as the best option for film replacement in commercial cinema presentations. Advanced features, including genlock input and linear time code, enable the synchronization of two JMP 9600 2K players to create 4K resolution.
The two players aren’t on Extron’s website yet, but you can see their press release here: http://www.extron.com/company/article.aspx?id=jmp9600pr
