Extron Launches XTP CrossPoint for Digital and Analog Routing and Control in One

xtp_crosspoint-0811Extron’s new XTP CrossPoint System is really a totally new way of signal switching and distribution for multiple digital and analog formats. XTP CrossPoint Systems support local connectivity as well as extended transmission capability for sending high resolution video, audio, RS-232, Ethernet and power up to 330 feet (100 m) over a single Cat5 cable.

Making digital switching systems work well is tricky and this new XTP system includes all the ones that Extron pioneered, including SpeedSwitch Technology, EDID Minder and Key Minder for switching of HDMI and DVI signals and HDCP-encrypted content, SD Pro processing for deinterlacing standard definition signals to eliminate display compatibility issues, Automatic Input Cable Equalization and Output Reclocking that provide digital video signal conditioning to ensure optimal performance. Extron has also incorporated audio management features into the XTP CrossPoint, including HDMI audio embedding and de-embedding, audio breakaway, and downmixing multi-channel formats.

XTP CrossPoint matrix switchers are modular and expandable from 4×4 up to 16×16 or 32×32, and can be populated with input and output boards for long distance transmission when paired with XTP transmitters and receivers. I/O boards are also available for direct HDMI, DVI, VGA, video, and audio connections to support local sources and displays. A family of long distance XTP transmitters and receivers are available for sending or receiving video, audio, RS-232 and IR control, Ethernet, and power up to 330 feet from the XTP CrossPoint matrix switcher over a single Cat5 cable.
