Extron says it has the largest number of AV signal switching, distribution and processing products that are certified by the US Department of Defense – DoD for use in secure government installations. Extron matrix switchers, switchers, distribution amplifiers, extenders, and video scalers across five product lines of diverse technologies qualify under Defense Information Systems Agency – DISA Joint Interoperability Test Command – JITC requirements. These products are listed on the DoD’s Unified Capabilities Approved Products List – UC APL. Inclusion on this list validates that products have successfully completed interoperability and information assurance testing for use in command and control, conference, training, and briefing room systems, making the JITC-certified products from Extron ideal for government design projects and other mission-critical installations.
Extron products qualify for JITC certification under the Video Distribution System category. For AV signal switching and distribution, the APL includes FOX Series fiber optic products, DTP twisted pair solutions, and XTP multi-format systems, along with specific models for video scaling, such as the DVS 605 scaler with seamless switching and the IN1608 scaling presentation switcher. IPCP Pro control processors provide a hardened interface to ensure secure communications between the control system and the AV equipment. A complete list of approved Extron products tested to JITC Interoperability – IO and Information Assurance – IA certification is available on the DISA website.
